For Ryan.

The former Prime Minister of Iceland, David Oddson, told me of the visit there of Shimon Peres when he was Prime Minister of Israel. Peres surprised his hosts by saying that Iceland and Israel had much in common. “First,” he said, “we both got our independence in the 1940s. Second, our names start with the letter ‘I’. And third, we are both surrounded by hostile territory.” “Ah!” said Prime Minister Oddson, “We are different as well. You are the chosen people, but we are the frozen people.
