Dickering Over Jerusalem
Finally, the news this morning states that Olmert is not going to discuss Jerusalem with the Palestinians until they recognize the Jewish state of Israel. It seems to me that the Palestinians were trying to put the cart before the horse. Here they have not recognized Israel as a state in their midst but have been demanding most of Jerusalem. They have continually been bombarding Israel from Gaza with rockets as well. This doesn't look like peaceful actions to me. Personally, I hope Olmert remains fast in his decision not to give into people who are not showing any good faith. Condoleeza should talk to the Palestinians about showing what good neighbors they would be.
