That's not only a problem with Olmert. To lazily relax, because the calm of the instant seems to allow it and because we are "out off the wood" if we pass the buck to others or if things develop in a wrong way (the right or the Palestinians for example) because not much is at present really settled, this kind of passivity is not without danger and near to irresponsibility. Still we might have a feeling for the limitations of Olmert's power and for Israeli interior and exterior tensions. So, maybe it is not so much the task of Olmert to risk the present situation by harsh actions "from above", but rather it might be your and other journalist's and analyst's task, inside and outside of Israel, to perseveringly clarify and criticise, not much different from the way you already do. Just go ahead...
