This was unshamefully stolen from CNN:
Directly addressing the Palestinians in some of his most conciliatory remarks since winning election in March, Olmert described Israel as willing to make far-reaching concessions if the Palestinians choose peace.
"We, the state of Israel, will agree to the evacuation of many territories and the settlements that we built there. This is extremely difficult for us, like the splitting of the Red Sea. We will do it for real peace," he said
Difficult as splitting the red sea. I wonder if Olmert broke a sweat during 'diffcult' task.
I find it amazing that totally secular Jews spice their daily language with biblical terms.
