I remember an old story about the early days when Yitzhak Rabin had started talking to Yassir Arafat. Someone in Israeli said maybe now he is ready to start talking to Shimon Peres. Israeli politicians are a quarrelsome bunch. But when they believe their country is in danger, they close ranks. Naturally, they go on bickering. But they unite on the things that matter most. I wonder if Palestinian politicians are learning to do the same.
