Here Comes Ehud...Olmert

Should we trust any report penned by someone named Attila?

The Palestinians' intention to seek international recognition of a Palestinian state did not catch Israel's political echelon by surprise...the source noted, "Israel needs to prepare for a different course of action. If there's no partner, we have to think of alternatives."

...In other words, former Prime Minister Olmert's "convergence plan" might come back to life. This plan includes a unilateral withdrawal from extensive areas in the West Bank, and convergence of the settlement blocks.

What? Where'd that pop in?

Those advocating the revival of the convergence plan note that in order for Israel to maintain control over the entire West Bank, the government must come up with an organized plan to evacuate settlements, while leaving IDF forces deployed throughout the area, in order to maintain the necessary security arrangements and prevent terror organizations such as Hamas from taking control of the evacuated areas.
