If Iran gets the impression that Olmert will weaken Israel considerably, and every information indicates that he will, the mullahs might decide to let Assad go, to weaken Israel even more. A last minute decision to attend could be the outcome. Iran decides about the future of Syria and Lebanon, Iran decides about the future of Gaza and the West Bank, and –if not stopped- Iran will lead the global jihad with nuclear weapons. PM Olmert has made out of Israel a passive bystander watching how the encirclement for its own destructions is going on, with Olmert even accelerating the process. It is a situation never seen in Israeli history, perhaps only when the Kingdom of Judah disappeared, which was a client kingdom of Persia.
