I've Been Thinking:
At a conference in Geneva former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert revealed several remarkable confessions. The confessions will appear in his upcoming autobiography.
He said that Israel and the Palestinian Authority were nearly at the point of signing an agreement but the Palestinians could not bring themselves to sign.
He said that under the agreement the United States, under George Bush, would receive 100,000 Palestinian refugees and Israel would receive no more than 20,000.
He said that the Palestinians could not sign off on that plan and neither could they acknowledgment that the conflict is over.
He said "The numbers discussed were below 20,000, but this would require an end to the conflict and a Palestinian announcement that they would not make any more demands..."
Olmert's autobiography will certainly be an interesting read.
