Headline: Israeli and Palestinian Leader Meet For Peace

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Palestinan President Mahmoud Abbas "you can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh" yesterday, when the two leaders met for another round of peace negotiations.

Comments made by the Israeli prime minister — that the issue of Jerusalem would be last on the peace process agenda — threatened to deter the talks. Olmert insisted that Abbas had agreed to the schedule. Palestinian officials, who insist that Jerusalem should be the capital of an independent Palestine, denied agreeing to avoiding the Jerusalem issue.

The two leaders plan to meet again in two weeks time. They have met twice a month since last November's American-sponsored peace conference in Annapolis, Md. Despite the struggle to agree on the agenda, I think it's hopeful that the two are meeting and posing for Rihanna-inspired photo ops.

On behalf of all my Palestinian friends who are refugees, had land taken from them, one of whom was run over by a bulldozer demolishing his home, and two of whom died in the bombing of a building that no Israeli intelligence proved had militants within it - I hope this works. It won't, however, because America is still providing Israel with $3 billion/year, and backing them up unconditionally, despite the numerous anti-humanitarian acts the government has forced their army to pursue. Just in the past few days, numerous Israeli Generals have spoken out against the apartheid checkpoints between Palestine and Israel - THESE are the people we should be listening to, not the heads of governments that make decisions their people overwhelmingly object to.

I deeply hope that at least some progress comes out of these talks. As you say, LibertySugar, the fact that they are even able to meet and appear to be civil is in itself a good sign. (I have a lot of friends in Israel, some of whom I have been very scared for at times in the not-too-distant past, so I definitely have a personal interest in this story.)
