Cossacks and Israel

Via Opinion Journal, Cossack leaders in Ukraine have pledged support to Israel in its fight against terrorism. This is quite a reversal. During the 17th century, Cossacks led a brutal campaign against Ukraine's Jewish population, killing an estimated 100,000. Time takes care of many things. This news is certainly welcome.
