The relationship between the US and Israel is completely different to that between the Palestinians and the US.
Both sides want security in the region.
It's in Israel's own interests to keep the Palestinians happy, but Ehud Olmert is not achieving this.
Mr Olmert is trying to show the international community that he is not a bad person by transferring some of our own money back to us.
But the situation in the Palestinian territories is still very dangerous all the time.
Look at the settlements, look at the wall. Palestinians won't agree to this, of course they won't.
These areas should be Palestinian and people don't just give away their rights.
Mr Olmert should talk to the Palestinians. And tell the truth.
We Palestinians are very tired of the situation.
If he takes one-sided decisions people will feel ignored, that they are nothing.
Then the Palestinians will rebel and attack again, to show that we are here, that we are people living in this land.
