Israel's seventh gatekeeper
The head of the Shin Bet security service has to decide right now how to stop the next intifada.
Shin Bet chief Yoram Cohen didn't appear in the documentary "The Gatekeepers," a fact that gives us hope for next year's Oscars. Until he retires and is discovered by a filmmaker, he continues to serve as a gatekeeper. He's responsible for making sure that the decision-makers know about a danger in time, and he's responsible for preventing it.
