The title to this piece is an old joke about the "Peace Now" movement. How unfortunate is it that the time of payment has come. We are now paying a dear price for the illusions that were behind the Oslo agreements in the early 1990s and Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon in the year 2000. How ironic it is that many of the politicians that were responsible for these two (literally) fatal mistakes are serving in the present government and Knesset: Shimon Peres, Chaim Ramon, and Amir Peretz, just to name a few. The lack of accountability here is amazing!
The time has come to pay the bills.
