    Did Olmert hold a referendum? Did he call an election? How did he ask for their support? Did he tell the police to stop removing their name tags and beating demonstrators, so he could see what the public has to say? NO, NO, NO He knows that the public is against Annopolis. The public was against Oslo, The public was against Wye, The publis was against the disengagement (sic). There was no referendum held for any of these suicidal arrangements that have brought more death and misery to Israel than all the previous years of terrorism combined. If Olmert wants to ask the public, let him say clearly what he wants to do, and hold a referendum or election. There is no doubt that he will lose. Of course, the 'enlightened nobility' (as Beilin has even said repeatedly in public) feel they know better than the masses, hence the supreme court over-ruling the knesset, the police beating protesters, and no election reforms that will directly correspond MKs with voter districts.
