    "Our policy will be to make an effort to help, in a careful and supervised manner, through taking advantage of the best opportunities," said Olmert at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting." Hello Mr. Olmert, Since when has your policiy been "to help" the Palestinian people when you and your staff hijacked their critical tax revenue over 9 mponths ago and sent them and their economy into despair? Well, I heard many of those ppoor people talk on the BBC and CNN and tell (and read in newspapers arpound the world) how they had to sell their funiture and familiy treasures to keep food on the table for themselves and for their children. Shame on you! Now you expect us to accept your undermining and the US in a bloody battle between Fatah and Hamas forces and consider your special offering now to reinstate the propped up government of Mr. Abbas with the release of some of that tax revenue as "taking advantage of the best opportunities" available. I don't think so. Dutc
