    Annapolis is a hopeful start for the resumed peace dialogue. PM Olmert, however, is going to have a very tough (if not impossible) time selling it to his rightist coalition partners. I fully expect Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu to walk out of the government any day now. If that happens, Kadima's lot will be completely thrown in with Labour and other progressive elements in the following election, with a new centre-left coaltion being the only hope I can see of any meaningful Israeli participation in the peace talks. And I'm not optimistic Mr Olmert will be able to cobble together 61 Knesset seats ... Critics of Israel say it's not interested in peace. If the right-wing wins, there'll be no arguing with them.
