    Olmert and Abbas are both politically weak, but their political interests, those of Sunni Arab states, and those of Israel and the Palestinians, will never align more closely than now. It is time to strike for peace. Extremists shall rage: Iran and its proxies will stir the pot. More Hamas rockets will fall in Sderot. Israeli settlers will violently demonstrate to preserve their land-grab. Perhaps there shall be another assasination attempt and yet another martyr for peace joining ranks with Sadat and Rabin. But the important thing is for those of good will on each side to make the painful choices, to hold fast to this moment and make it something history will worship: the beginning of a time when all the children of Abraham may live in peace, together.
