It shouldn't, but it never ceases to amaze me. In a move of incredible, potentially deadly, cynicism Olmert is planning to hand over the Golan (together with 93% of Judea and Samaria) to the Arabs. Never mind that Syria doesn't really want a deal. Never mind that the Palestinians can't bring themselves to compromise on anything. Never mind that both the Alawite junta in Syria and the so-called 'moderate' Fatah Government of the PA will likely both fall to Jihadists. Never mind that Olmert is just trying to save his skin.
Despite all that, the papers are hailing the peace with Syria that hasn't even begun to be defined or worked on. By contrast, the increasingly solid and sordid tale of corruption that is closing in on Olmert is reduced to a secondary or tertiary place.
It's a drug this Peace fantasy, and the whole system of elites is addicted.
Drug addiction kills.
I guess they forgot.
