Is there anyone out there that does not understand that all of the sweet nothings Elliot Abrams whispered in the ear of Abbas were just that, nothings, rather than promises? Is there anyone who still believes that either Bush or Olmert see any need to actually help Abbas stay in power, or even stay alive? It would seem, from their actions, not their words, that both Bush and Olmert see Abbas as a client who has taken the graft and has no complaint about what he is asked to deliver or about any future payments either in kind or cash. I would rather that Israel had dealt with Abbas in good faith in late 2005. I would rather they had dealt with him in good faith in 2006. If only Olmert had dealt with him in good faith even a few months ago, then Hamas would not be in such a strong position as it is now, nor Abbas in such a weak one. Abbas was the best deal Israel could have ever had. And Israel (Kadima) chose to not even consider peace. Coming next, a far worse deal.
