Climbing Mountains

Lisa Goldman notes that the Israeli and Palestinian flags have been waved jointly atop Mt. Everest. This is definitely better than some people's behavior. Unfortunately, in a conflict filled with them it just begs the question of how many symbolic victories for peace it takes to make a real one. Perhaps if word spreads that an Israeli unfurled the Palestinian flag to support a colleague, it will move a few Arab fence-sitters into the peace camp, and that comparable steps on both sides will eventually lead to mutual understanding between both peoples.
