Sad but true.

I don't believe for a minute that Olmert is sorry. In fact, I don't even know whether to believe that he really wants or intends on meeting with Abbas as he promised today. He's one helluva prevaricator. He's saying now what he feels he has to say given the level of outrage both in Palestine & the outside world.

He figures rather than let Israel be crucified (inapt choice I realize) by the world, he'll eat a little crow & see if that calms things down enough to get back to business as usual.

Sorry for being so cynical. But what else can one be with such outrages?

Ellie Weisel said, "A destruction only man can provoke, only man can prevent. Mankind must remember that peace is not God's gift to his creatures, it is our gift to each other."

Your point is well taken.
