Ehud Barak, had he stayed the course, would have ended his term of office next week! Instead there is his friend and fellow General Ariel Sharon at the helm. Peres of course served under Sharon as Foreign Minister -- something he now wants everyone to forget (there is so much Peres wants everyone to forget). When he lost to General Sharon, General Barak desperately wanted to be Sharon's Defense Minister (but someone else from the Labor Party took the job). And now Labor has resurrected all the failed agreements of the past - Oslo, Cairo, Wye River, Camp David - calling it Geneva. At though at first Peres tried to pretend he wasn't behind it...just a few days later low and behold guess what! And the VIP "PA" (that's 'Authority') Palestinians, lacking all credibility among their own, are desperately running around Europe and the US proclaiming this and that in a putrid show of political bankruptcy and personal corruption. Neither Sari Nuseiba nor Abed Abed-Rabbo, nor 'Foreign Minister' Nabil Shaath who's slimy hands are all over recent developments, would dare show themselves in a Palestinian refugee camp or at Bir Zeit University; but they love the VIP status and special priviledges are they travel from one foreign location to another, especially in Washington where they are so badly used and misused eveyrone has last count.
