    This is a pretty depressing analysis. And certainly one that further makes me pissed at the idea of the Arab League. Granted, Arab presence that is not Palestinian has had a long term hand in the conflict between Israel and Palestine. But if they're going to be half-assing the upcomming summit, then it would be in Abbas' best interest to flip them the finger and just move forward with what he feels is best. To at least make some progress in any area of discussions would give people worldwide hope that this conflict can end. At the same time though, Olmert is going to have to grow his own pair of balls and face down his own nation's pricks for progress to be made. Releasing 450 prisoners and stating settlement expansion will freeze is one thing. But he needs to actually follow through with these acts with as little delay as possible.
