Call me a dreamer, but when you see hundreds of thousands of people going to the streets, putting their lives on the line against a brutal dictatorship, one has to sympathize with them. As to whether these protesters would be any more sympathetic to making peace with Israel, it would be foolish to have any illusions, but as between attempting to reason with a criminal and negotiating with a legitimately supported government, is there any real choice? It might seem surprising, but if we ever had the chance to actually talk with the people of the neighboring countries, we might find that they are human beings and actually might find that they are seeking pretty much the same things that we want. Or am I just being naive?
