A day after a Palestinian youth stabbed and killed three Jerusalem residents, police took steps Monday to keep Palestinians out of the city for their own protection by blocking the entry of Arabs from the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Another stabbing was reported Monday when a Palestinian delivery boy at a grocery store attacked a meat truck driver, slightly injuring him.

We were lost. The road to the presidential retreat at Camp David was winding and narrow; it was dark, the way it doesn't get in the city. We had clearly missed a turn somewhere. I kidded Dennis Ross, the lead U.S. negotiator for the imminent Israeli-Palestinian Camp David summit, that if we couldn't even find the president's compound, how were we going to help Bill Clinton negotiate an agreement between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestine Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat once we got there?

Israeli security forces flooded downtown Jerusalem on Monday, taking up prominent positions on sidewalks and rooftops a day after the latest bomb attack in the city, and the government weighed a response as it tried to determine the political affiliation of the female bomber. A Palestinian man, meanwhile, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Tel Aviv after driving his car through a roadblock, running down and injuring an Israeli soldier and a policeman.

Israeli and Palestinian negotiators left Washington on Saturday without reaching agreement on critical issues dividing them, dealing a serious blow to President Clinton's hopes of reaching a peace accord before he leaves office. In a half-hour White House meeting with Clinton concluding the most serious peace talks in months, negotiators could not hammer out accord on the status of Jerusalem, security, refugees or borders.

There was no ignoring the gulf crisis, even amid the fur coats, jeweled necklines and dinner tables sprouting yellow orchids at the annual scholarship fund-raiser for Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Security on Sunday night was noticeably beefed up at the Century Plaza because of concerns about terrorist activity in U.S. hotels, and there was a certain pall to the gaiety.

Hand grenades were thrown tonight at a crowd of Israeli soldiers and their parents near Jerusalem's Wailing Wall, Judaism's holiest site, causing at least 40 casualties in the most serious attack in the city in 2 1/2 years. Reports on police radio monitored by the Visnews television agency said an undisclosed number of people were killed in the apparent Arab guerrilla attack. Mayor Teddy Kollek called the bombing "a large-scale disaster."

In its quest for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, the United States has pursued essentially the same objective over several administrations. So when Secretary of State John F. Kerry announced during his latest round of shuttle diplomacy that "we can achieve a permanent-status agreement that results in two states for two peoples if we stay focused," skepticism was understandable. Not just because the peace process has been so tragically unsuccessful over the last 15 years, but because even today, each side seems intent on thumbing its nose at the other.

Israeli security chiefs presented plans to the government Tuesday to surround Jerusalem with fences, roadblocks, ditches and foot patrols to prevent more of the Palestinian suicide bombings that have wreaked havoc in the city in recent weeks. The National Security Council's plan, known as "Enveloping Jerusalem," also calls for checkpoints and electronic surveillance between West and East Jerusalem that critics say would in effect repartition the contested city without ensuring Israeli security.
