This is a tragedy because Israel faces an extraordinary strategic opportunity.At first glance, it might seem absurd to speak hopefully about opportunities for Israel. On closer examination one can see that it has changed dramatically in Israel's favor.When that last happened, in 1948 and 1967, its purpose was to wipe Israel off the map.Similarly, it has built a wall that reduced terror attacks against Israel to virtually zero and its "iron dome" defense system has blunted the threat from Hamas' and Hezbollah's rockets.And then there is Israel's economy, which continues to surge forward, outstripping the others in the region. It won't, and the tragedy is that this is the moment, with so many stars aligned in Israel's favor, when enlightened leadership could secure Israel permanently as a Jewish, democratic state and make peace with its neighbors.
