I, too, eye the people I pass on the street, sizing them up. Forget about racial profiling -- I'm scared of everyone I don't know right now.

In the end, if the current agreement goes forward and proves better than expected, Israeli leaders would, I hope, admit they erred and offer suitable apologies. But if it goes worse than advertised, then it will be Israel, plus its Arab neighbors, that will pay the heaviest price.
