Opportunities like this rarely knock

So when they do, someone should pounce: see Robert Satloff's recent article in the Baltimore Sun about his visit to Cairo and speech there on the Holocaust and Holocaust-denial. The Sunni fright of Iran is deeper than I realized.

There have been disastrous events for the Jewish people, like the outbreak of World War I and the Hitler-Stalin pact, which made World War II possible. But then there have been positive breakthroughs like Sadat's 1977 visit to Jerusalem and Gorbachev's arrival in the US in 1988. This is more like the latter.
