    This is a depressing thought, indeed. The Zionist dream has at least on this day, at least from the view of the editorial writer, withered to a state, as the article says, of limbo. No peace, no reconciliation, no clear way to move forward. Is this just the mood of the moment, or is it a reality that is rock-solid? Does disappointment with Netanyahu and Israeli leadership in general really leave the country in such a void, or is it the intersection of the day and the matsav. Things change, and sometimes rapidly, and, every now and then, for the better.
