The outlines of Olmert's peace-politics are drawn at his kitchen-table with peace-activst wife, who is turning his head. Israel needs an independent realist to deal with facts of Israel's everyday life and who knows the Arab-mentality, culture and religion to which traditional western politics do not apply, but require special politics of itself to be dealt with. Olmert is a dreamer and Israel cannot afford any more dreaming and living in self-delusions of something that never was and never will be like existing in peace with the Pals with Israel's own right.
