    Olmert has really put Israel in a straitjacket. First, his offhand remarks that Israel is finished if a 2-state does not happen makes Abbas know he can hold out for almost anything. Second, US is now the judge of what is progress, not Israel as General Jones will be prssing Israel. Thirdly, the US wants to force a UN resoluton to put it on the record that Israel has to give up territories and Jerusalem. Israel, contrary to Olmert's sophisticated bull, can survive even without a deal and shouldn't be cowed into a deal. Olmert admits he talked Sharon into withdrawing unilaterally which Eliezer now admits was a bad idea. Finally, insiders at Annapolis say that Olmert wanted the conference more than anyone else;to distract israelis from his poor security record. Israeli would take risks for peace with someone they could trust like sharon and Rabin. They do not put their trust in this weak, fearful representative of israel.No israeli leader has ever put israel into such a bad position.
