A few months before that March election, at a huge memorial in Tel Aviv marking 10 years since the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, I listened to the newly elected leader of the Labor Party, Amir Peretz, speak with passion and evident conviction of his goals:
"I have a dream, Yitzhak, that one day an industrial zone will be set up in the no-man's land between Sderot and Beit Hanun. Entertainment venues and playgrounds for our children and Palestinian children will be set up, and they will play together, and build a common future together."
There will be those on the right, and they will be many, who are gloating just now.
Gloat away. Gloat all you want.
