Condi and her masters & handlers
Sheik yer’mami sez:
No, she didn’t say that. Of course not.
Just trying to crack you up!
* Its just about a hopeless twit being burdened with an impossible task.
* I could go further but I’m afraid you might call me a ‘Ricist’- which I’m not.
*But I really don’t think people who are not capable should be elevated to positions they can’t handle.
JERUSALEM (AFP) – US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice shuttled between Palestinian and Israeli leaders over the weekend to prepare for a three-way peace summit that has been overtaken by battles over a Palestinian unity government.
Rice said her talks Sunday with Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister had been extensive, cordial and candid.
But she declined to go into detail of what would be discussed at Monday’s meeting and sought to lower expectations of any breakthrough in reviving an Israeli-Palestinian peace process that has been frozen for years.
“This is not something that I expect to move along very quickly,” she said.
Meanwhile, our friends, the ‘Palestinians’- demand jobs:

JERUSALEM – The U.S. and Israel agreed ahead of a three-way meeting with the Palestinians not to work with any new Palestinian government that does not renounce violence, recognize Israel and accept existing peace agreements, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday.
The so-called Quartet of Mideast negotiators â€” the U.S., European Union, U.N. and Russia â€” has set these demands as a condition for lifting crippling international sanctions against the Palestinians. The platform of a new Palestinian power-sharing agreement reached this month speaks only of “respect” for existing peace deals.
In the West Bank town of Ramallah, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday tried to persuade visiting Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to give the Hamas- Fatah coalition a chance, his aides said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter with the media.
