An article from the former PM, soon to be PM again. Makes you wish you could vote in other countries...would probably count more than a conservative vote in the state of NY.
Three weeks away from their elections and suddenly the entire Middle East is quaking in fear that he'll regain power. Hamas wants a year long truce written before then, Egypt wants it too, and Olmert, like Clinton and Bush, wants a legacy of peace and is aiming for some sweeping agreement before he leaves.
His brilliant offer? 1,000 Hamas prisoners released in exchange for Gilad Schalit.
It's tentatively titled the Oslo Annapolis Munich Agreement.
