    Beilin is correct in noting the Bush administration, led by Cheney, has pursued a policy of ingorance bordering on criminal negligence when it comes to solving the Palestinian - Israeli conflict. This presented Sharon with a golden opportunity to implement his policies of settlement expansion and Palestininan subjugation. Instead Bush decided to pursue the 'easier' (and more financially rewarding) aim of 'liberating' Iraq, a policy that has completely failed, undermining the stability of the region. Unfortunately for Sharon, who has undermined Abbas and opposed the peace process at every step, Bush is a lame duck president whose agenda is weakening by the day by corruption and a bankrupt agenda. Sharons brand of rightwing militarism will find fewer and fewer and friends on Capitol Hill as Bush's popularity declines. Let us hope that the victory of Peretz (and hopeful retirement of Peres) and withdrawl from the coalition will mark the resurgence of a real opposition in Israel!
