Not to worry. Olmert may or may not be a fool, but one thing is certain-----there will be no movement on the "roadmap." With Israel stepping up and continuing the military assault in Gaza puts Abbas in a precarious position. If he continues to meet with Israel he is giving defacto approval to Israel's operation against Hamas which will not sit well with the rank and file. Israel is quite aware of this and will up the ante until Abbas withdraws from negotiations and that will be the end that with both sides blaming the other. Next!
