Newsflash: Olmert has been reading my blog. Just kidding of course. But remember back a few months ago when I sparked a seriously heated debate 'round here about the idea of letting the settlers amicably and willingly come back within the government demarcated areas (to be set) or to let them remain where they are but without our protection just as Israelis have to be if they are living in New York, or Germany, or anywhere else. To let them stay there if they refuse to move and so to become Palestinian citizens?
Well Olmert seems to have come up with the same idea as he said today: ""Each and every one of the settlers who live in territories that stand to be evacuated will need to decide whether to live in a Jewish state, the state of Israel, or in a Palestinian state,".
