Olmert has finally realized that if you want peace, you must take a path that leads you in the direction of peace. Some Israelis whine, that path is too difficult! That path is too long! That path is too treacherous! Instead, these people would rather wander in the wilderness, as they have been doing for almost 40 years, since the six day war ended. In those 40 years, no progress has been made. Hizbollah and Hamas were born in those years and grow stronger daily. Hopefully Olmert will be strong enough to carry all his jibbering detractors upon his back, for they too will benefit in the end. Good Luck Olmert!
