Observer, I have little doubt that Hamas' prediction will come true. Hardly anything will come out of this "peace process". Olmert is interested in survival, so he cannot even talk about serious issues. And Abbas has put his trust in Bush's wisdom; but there is no such thing. It seems Abbas has to do the best he can under the circumstances. At the present time, he has to guarantee that the contributions promised to the PA will be delivered, so he must pretend that things are going well. An example is the latest meeting with Olmert. It was reported that Olmert promised not to take steps that will hamper the process. He did not commit to specifics as far as building in Jerusalem and elsewhere, except that this will also be part of the negotiations. Abbas accepted..
