Ehud K. Olmert is holier than thou

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert proved tonight to US President George W. Bush that he is holier than thou. While the 'Palestinian Authority' confirmed tonight that it has been notified by the United States that it will boycott all of the ministers in the PA 'unity government,' Olmert says that he will not cut ties with the 'Palestinian Authority.' Olmert will be meeting on Monday with US Secretary of State Condaleeza Rice and 'moderate' 'Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen.
Olmert said that he hoped Monday's meeting would "create conditions for dialogue" with the Palestinians, and said he expected the new government to clearly accept the Quartet's three principles: recognizing Israel, renouncing terrorism, and accepting previous agreements. [This despite the fact that the 'new government' has already said it will do nothing of the sort. When will Olmert wake up and listen to what the 'Palestinians' are saying? CiJ]

"We expect this from every Palestinian government: to continue in the direction of the road map and accept the demands of the Quartet. This pledge must be done very openly and clearly without hesitation," Olmert told reporters. [And this 'government' has said that it will do no such thing. CiJ]

Olmert's spokeswoman Miri Eisin quoted Olmert as saying there would be no negotiations on final-status issues at the trilateral meeting, but rather "a discussion to describe a vision of the political horizon."
So with a chance to cut the 'Palestinians' off altogether and leave them with no diplomatic horizon, Olmert is going to continue to talk to them outside. About what people was it that Abba Eban once famously quipped that they "never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity"?
