For those who need a scorecard

Here's the quick rundown of the current meeting between Abbas and Olmert in Sharm el-Sheikh:

What Fatah gets What Israel gets
$1 billion or so annually from the rest of the world A Gaza that will still get some of that money for building up an army
250 terrorists freed More rockets
International legitimacy A reputation as a "roadblock to peace" for not going further
$400 million from Israel A figurehead PA government that has no legitimacy in Palestinian eyes
The ability to keep the Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigades as the terror arm of the peaceful Fatah
More terror attacks

Those Jews are really crafty negotiators.
