    My Dear Aluf Benn: Olmert maybe a great successor to Sharon at presenting inflexible positions behind a mask of moderation but I am not accepting any of his deception or his staff and neither is anyone else I know. As Abraham Lincoln said you can't fool all of the people all of the time. So unlike Condoleezza Rice I intend to bang many tables (along with others) and demand that Israel complies with the UNSC 242 man- date to withdraw its troops from the Palestinian territories and negotiate the evacuation of its illegally placed settlements/settlers under the Fourth Geneva Convention; and the right of return of Pale- stinian refugees; and of course dismantling of its illegally placed wall in compliance with the ICJ's ruling in 2004. Thus the fight for Palestinian Rights isn't going to end with the US Congress cutting off Bush's funding in Iraq -- this fight is going to end with US Congress cutting off Israel's foreign aid until it complies with international law as peace loving people are demanding this too. In revolt, Dutch
