I admit that we Israelis tend to be brusque, rough at the edges, and occationally full of chutzpah. But in the cases of Syria and Meshal, Olmert has a much greater reason to answer positively, politely knock on the door, or initiate talks than to simply prove himself polite. There is a lot more is at stake here than Olmert's reputation as a well-mannered person. What is needed here in addition to good manners is some initiative, some vision, and some courage. If Olmert had those things, he could afford to be a bit rude, but he doesn't.
