Another sign Olmert's end is near: PA trying to meet Netanyahu, Mubarak prefers Barak

Here's another sign that the end of Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert's term in office is near: Suit-and-tie-clad unelected 'Palestinian' Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen (the $7.4 billion man) and chief 'Palestinian' 'negotiator' Ahmad Qrei Abu Ala have all been trying to meet with opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu this week.
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad has been trying to coordinate a meeting with Likud chairman and opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu for the past several weeks, the Kuwait-based Al Jareeda reported Saturday.

Palestinian sources have told the paper that the two were scheduled to meet in Sharm e-Sheikh last week but the meeting was cancelled due to technical difficulties. A meeting between the two is expected to take place in the coming days.

The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the report.

According to the report, PA President Mahmoud Abbas and top Palestinian negotiator Ahmed Qurei were also making efforts to meet Netanyahu. Netanyahu met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak last week and discussed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations with him.

"The reason Palestinian leaders are 'running' to meet Netanyahu is because they see him as the most likely candidate to replace Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, whose days as prime minister are numbered, following the investigation against him on bribe charges," Palestinian sources told the paper.
Ya think?

Meanwhile, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would prefer that Ehud Barak be Israel's Prime Minister. After all, Barak was so successful the last time he was Prime Minister.

It must feel really lonely when the Israeli Left, which controls the police and prosecutor's office, doesn't even reward him for trying to surrender the Golan Heights to Damascus. Being a pushover neither wins you credit with your enemies nor with your friends, as Ehud Olmert has no doubt learned.
