US makes demands of Israel... Not a small thing...

The US has made several demands of Israel and of Palestine. A security document makes demands like the removal of some checkpoints, road blocks, and the re arming of Palestinian Authority Security Forces. Also, it calls on Palestinians to have a "plan" to stop Qassam rocket attacks from Gaza.

The timing is interesting though I doubt incredibly meaningful. Olmert is under intense pressure to resign. I doubt he will. It will be interesting to see the rhetoric and action/inaction that takes place in the coming months.
