But there is something Mr Olmert could have learned from this. He might consider boycotting Mr Abbas and his Palestinian Authority on the very valid grounds that the ‘government’ he shares with Hamas is rocketing Sderot and lately causing fatalities.
Instead (dare I say unbelievably?) Olmert is actually considering the transfer of another $100 million of tax revenues to Abbas. He has not had any accounting for the $100 million he paid over in January, most likely none of which ever found its way into a Palestinian hospital or school (other than underneath such places, in the form of an arms cache).
