On the eighth anniversary of Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, after the devastation of the Intifada, peace in Israel feels so distant. At that sad and special moment, just eight years ago this week, the slog toward peace seemed truly irreversible. Now, alas, we know better: There is no end to the folly of which people are capable. There is another choice, another way. But the time to imagine that choice, to choose life, is terrifyingly short. Rabin spoke often of the "window of opportunity" that had suddenly opened and of how it would not last forever. The window is now perceptibly closing. That which so recently seemed imminent now seems appallingly remote. But it is not yet impossible, not quite yet, to act.
