Ronnie, it seems like good news but from your general tone, I presume you are very angry: Israel is talking about easing the draconian security apparatus in the West Bank (which makes it impossible to govern or for civillians to lead normal lives).... Olmert is talking about discussing FINAL PEACE issues with Abbas (who yes, actually visited Saudi Arabia a few weeks back to promote a national dialogue with Hamas). Heck, Olmert even said he is close to a photo op with the Saudis...who you see to loathe. While you wish all these developements fail, I hope they more forward with more momentum.
