    Right now, George W. Bush needs Ehud Olmert FAR more than Olmert needs Bush. Go pump some iron in the gym, get your testosterone up, and standu up to him and his minions! Bush is in the tightest squeeze of his presidency, trying desperately to score a series of "wins" in the Middle East. Israel is under no obligation to cave in to the Quartet, the Arabs or anyone else, and Bush is in no position to dictate terms. If he makes one misstep, Congress will be all over him, and he knows it -- and it will be like this for the next two years. The Saudis are scared out of their wits at a runaway nuclear Iran dominating Iraq, and they will do anything George tells them. The Egyptian government, likewise, is dependent on the Americans for just about everything, and existentially threatened by Al Qaeda. I needn't even mention what an infernal mess Arab-occupied Israel is in. The strongest, most stable country in the whole region is Israel. Israel, get some you-know-what!
