Israel on the Road

12 hours of flight, across the world, a large passport control hall with at least 2,000 travelers from at least 10 different flights, 10 different countries on five continents, endlessly waiting in lines, and four news screens with CNN broadcasting from Jerusalem - something about threats against Bush or some such.

You'll know we're finally at peace when turning on CNN anywhere in the world doesn't give you a picture from home; you'll know we're at finally at peace when travelers to Israel from European cities don't get shunted off to some terminal for pariahs at the end of the airport.
