Remember the Jordanian policeman recruited to infiltrate Al-Qaida in Iraq (or was it Afghanistan?) by the CIA. He was a double agent, strapped himself with a suicide belt, and killed some seven American CIA agents and a local agent too. Is that what Israel's establishment fears? The murderer had an impeccable record and passed on worthy info. But that wasn't his true self. Is that "Mohammed" the stereotype of Arab Israeli that authorities fear? But there is Jewish zealot, -let's call him Yigal- who killed nobody less than Israel's Prime Minister. He wasn't suspected enough during the hour he strolled at the crime scene. Mohammed should get a license to become a Knesset guard, Supreme Court guard, anything he wishes to give to the state of Israel. He should be able to become a Minister, a Cabinet Minister, a Kitchen Cabinet member. As I write these lines, I wonder what Jewish Israelis reading it would think. Is Fortuna an idiot? Is she nuts? She writes such naive crap because she's a naive Colombian "who doesn't know Arabs"? I know a few here. They are my friends. And yet, if I have to put political correctness aside, I would be weary for them to hold guns inside the Knesset or the Supreme Court. Could any of them become an undetected Jihadi? Perhaps precisely because of the impediments he experienced? I will be thumbed-down in my confused, contradictory post, I know. I want to embrace the two Mohammeds, and all others who want to serve Israel. And yet, I remain weary. Doesn't it ever happen to you Yossi? What made you immune to suspicion? What's the remedy?
