Tempered optimism

I do hope conditions alluded to in the March 10 article, “Kurtzer sees no alternative to two states,” will lead to a peace settlement that will allow Israel to remain as a viable Jewish nation. But my optimism is tempered as the article did not discuss how the resulting peace agreement would be  supported from attempts to subvert it.
