    Hello, Goldberg, Let's read further into the same article: "The most important thing in the joint statement is that ... any agreement that we reach in the future will be dependent on completion of all road map commitments. "In other words, Israel will not have to implement any commitment which emanates from the agreement before all the road map commitments have been met," [Olmert] said. This doesn't look like the Israelis are trying to weasel out of an end-of-2008 negociating deadline. It simply means the road map goals have to be met first. But not just the Palestinians have obligations under the road map. Israel, amongst other things, must pull its settlements out of the West Bank. Let's see if Mr Olmert lives up to his end of that particular bargain first. (My guess: no, not under this coalition government. If he tries to clear out the settlers, the rightists will bolt the coalition, the government will fall, and another election will be held.) Kind regards.
