Is Olmert
Willing To
Give Away
His Own Daughter
For Peace?

Does the Israeli President think he has the right to give away Jerusalem? He seems to think so:

Israel needs to internalize that even its supportive friends on the international stage conceive of the country's future on the basis of the 1967 borders and with Jerusalem divided, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has declared to The Jerusalem Post.

At the same time, he made clear that he did not envisage a permanent accord along the '67 lines, describing Ma'aleh Adumim as an "indivisible" part of Jerusalem and Israel.

In an interview at the start of a year that he hopes will yield a permanent Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, the prime minister said many rival Israeli political parties remain "detached from the reality" that requires Israel to compromise "on parts of Eretz Yisrael" in order to maintain its Jewish, democratic nature.

If Israel "will have to deal with a reality of one state for two peoples," he said, this "could bring about the end of the existence of Israel as a Jewish state. That is a danger one cannot deny; it exists, and is even realistic."

Yes, but does that mean he has the right to give away Jersualem.

Just say "No", Olmert. What are they going to do, come and take it away by force, you idiot?

Does Olmert really think that if he gives away Jersusalem it will bring peace? When has compromise with Palestinians ever yielded anything that resembled peace?
