It's interesting that Olmert hides behind the SKIRT of the International Quartet when saying, "The State of Israel has no interest in negotiating with entities that do not recognize the Quartet demands". Yet it is Israel that consistently refuses to abide by United Nations rules. An official of the two-faced Israeli government just yesterday said, "Israel has created a series of far-reaching expectations in the international arena, but this is not going to happen." Perhaps world opinion is correct in not trusting this Israel. And in the process, many people misguidedly apply that same distrust to all Jews.
