    Well stated.Facts on the ground and the uS $ are real world factors as well as demographics/ Ayalon and Olmert have talked about the israel is finished topic. I agree with you about the negotiating stance of livni, who may have some points but is seen to be appeasing which doesn't cut it. Note that both Olmert and livni are lawyers who are not bad with words and cases, but not with real world land development, tanks and war. Livni is a real negative surprise as we would have thought she might have had future. First she backed down like a coward after demanding that Olmert resign. Then she follows him almost word for word on the concession business. Olmert is doing this mostly for himself since it is the only way he could rehabilitate if peace worked out. Livni doe not have her own position. Complaining why the saudis didn't shake her hand is ridiculous.She should have resigned after the lebanon war as she should have stopped Olmert who was a runaway train.
