I don't know that the assassination of Rechavam Ze'evi changes the entire Middle East equation, as Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon announced Tuesday. England's Prime Minister Tony Blair called for a measured response, which struck many Israelis as laughable, considering the massive military force Britain and the United States have arrayed against the Taliban. It may be unfair that Israel must be constrained while America can pummel Afghanistan at will, but so it goes. There is so far no indication that President George W. Bush or our allies are going to let the Israeli minister's murder change their vision of how the war on terror should be waged, or how the post-war world should ultimately look.
