JERICHO, West Bank - Ehud Olmert became the first Israeli prime minister to visit a Palestinian city for seven years.
Jericho is one of the West Bank's most peaceful cities and the venue — a five-star hotel — is located on the outskirts of town, just a few hundred yards from a permanent Israeli occupation checkpoint.
Still, the meeting poses a challenge to Olmert as Abbas wants to sell him the West Bank and Olmert is too dumb to see it.
If Sharon was in power he would have bought it, last week, already.
Olmert, Sharon’s bag carrier, only learned how to stall from Sharon, not the important bit…….when to grab.
