FILE - In this Sunday, Dec. 21, 2008, file photo, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert attends the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. The third Gaza war is playing out very much like the first one some five years ago: We are now at the stage where the harrowing civilian toll in Gaza is at the center of the discourse, eclipsing the rocket attacks by Hamas militants which are the reason for the Israeli assault. When Olmert was Israel's prime minister, he was clearly committed to pulling out of the West Bank one way or another and was perceived as serious on the Palestinian issue.
