Mark has a point.Olmert was irrelevent from the time investigation of his corruption started seriously. He was a liar and the worst PM in Israels history.In fact he did alot of damage by shooting off his mouth about existance or non existance of Nuclear weapons while visiting Europe. Olmert the consumate liar was hagging Abbas in December on 2008 and with a straight face repeated few time on TV camera watch" No, No, Peace will come this year (2008)" Who believed Olmerts loksh.I don't think Abaas nor none of Israeli and Palestinina public. I don't understnd why Abbas ddn't react and said nothing!!! In retrospect,I don't think Abbas or any other PA lleader will sign any agreement with Israel.,not even if all WB and Gaza are evacuated by Israel to 1967 borders.They will still insist of the Right of rerurn for 5 million Arabs to Israel.Hence end of Jewish State. Any PA leader which will forgoe the "Right of Return"will be assasinated within days.Iran Islamists dictate end of Jews.
