A preparatory meeting intended to lay the groundwork for a meeting between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has been cancelled, the prime minister's office announced Thursday. "This is not the right time to conduct such a meeting," Olmert's office said. On Sunday, IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit was kidnapped in an attack on IDF forces near Kerem Shalom, and on Thursday morning it was released for publication that Eliyahu Asheri, 18, had been executed by his abductors.
