    "There won't be Palestinian state unless it is coherently run" - Tony Blair I see Mr. Blair has finally figured it out. It is impossible to characterize an entire nation with the actions of it's government. It is, however, quite proper to note that even a minority government can speak and act for an entire nation. Mr. Blair's Britain opposed his participation in George Bush''s pursuit of power and glory in Iraq. That did not matter, Blair did as his master told him, wasted British soldiers for the profit of Halliburton - and because of the form of democracy in Britain, the public be damned. Mr. Blair seems finally to understand the method of the Olmert government and has given it his stamp of approval. Olmert will never permit a coherent government of Palestine and thus there will never be a Palestinian government. This meets the desires of the Israeli right, if not the nation. It also leaves no coherent path for Israel to follow. Are the Palestinians going to disappear? No.
