“I could have been a contender, I could have been somebody, instead of a bum which is what I am”

According to Ynet news, Olmert stood up to his partner in crime Abu Mazen in the Menage a peace today.

Palestinian official who attended Jerusalem summit hosted by Rice says Israeli premier told Palestinian leader, ‘you cheated me by reaching unity deal with Hamas’; Abbas responded by saying, ‘you gave me nothing and didn’t keep your promises,’ official adds. Saeb Erekat: Rice made it clear that any Palestinian government must accept previous agreements, obligations

WOW!!! is Elmer Olmert getting some backbone? Is he finally realizing that Abbas has been screwing Israel all along? NAH. But its nice to see him showing a bit of a backbone.

At conclusion of meeting with Olmert, Abbas, US secretary of state says all three leaders affirmed their commitment to a two-state solution and agreed that ‘a Palestinian state cannot be born of violence and terror’

The prime minister said in broadcast remarks to his Kadima party after the meeting that Israel and the United States agreed to boycott the Palestinian government, which has yet to be formed, unless it renounced violence, recognized Israel and accepted existing interim peace accords.

Rice reiterated it was the position of the “Quartet” of Middle East mediators trying to restart peace talks stalled for the past six years that these three conditions be met.

“(I thank Washington) for the unequivocal stance that it will not recognize a government that does not accept the Quartet’s principles,” Olmert said of the group composed of the United States, European Union, Russia and the United Nations.

So where does that leave Israel? For the last few months everyone has been working hard at propping up Abbas, and guess what—it didn’t work. This unity government is as terrorist oriented as each of its components were alone. And in process Olmert sold out his soul and his backbone. What a waste…He could have been a contender now he’s a bum.
