    The Palestinian conflict is the centerpiece of a regional peace accord, which is why Arab League participation is essential. A regional, comprehensive peace is essential to recover the Middle East from descent into radical chaos fueled by the impasse created by radical Zionists and Hamas, who will soon be joined by Al Qaida if the status quo is not changed. Annapolis is not something to be avoided, but embraced as an existential neccessity by Israel. To this end, it would be most prudent to include credit to the Saudi Initiative in the joint declaration, and, if not already done, the Golan issue on the agenda at Annapolis. This will immensely improve the atmosphere and spirit of cooperation, which will bring dividends to Israel far in excess of what the right wingers hope to gain by spoiling and foot dragging. The value of peace attainable today, far eclipses the woe of continued descent into quicksand.
