Olmert in Washington, Cheney in California

Hosted by
Israel's Prime Minister was at the White House today; he'll address Congress tomorrow. Ehud Olmert is in Washington, to push for a unilateral pull-out from parts of the West Bank. It's a controversial idea, even within Olmert's own government, and with supporters of Israel here in the US. What about the Palestinians who are fighting among themselves on the streets of Gaza? We hear about his plan for unilateral withdrawal from parts of the West Bank, what it would mean for Palestinians and why it has divided the so-called Israeli lobby in Washington. (An extended version of this discussion originally aired earlier today on To the Point.)
