Over thirty years ago I had an interesting conversation while hitch hiking near Jerusalem. The driver couldn't understand why I wanted to stay in America--where everybody hated Jews. He thought me 'dangerously' naive when I told him that in my social circle,and in general, my Jewishness was only an interesting aspect of who I was, not the basis of my associations. We didn't change each others' minds, but what I remember about the conversation was that he, himself, had never been abroad. I fear that while Israel has been waiting, and waiting, for the Palestinian situation to somehow resolve itself-- delaying the day of finally reeling in the leash on the right-wing monster that has grown in the meantime may prove to be also an existential threat.
