When Danny says this. That Palestinian sources says Israel's government - which is interested in the summit taking place - should make much more effort (concessions, in other words) to make the Arabs attend the Washington conference. Basically Abbas was offered everything by Olmert, Peres and Barak. Pretty much the 67 borders including the old city. The only thing Olmert and crew didn't give away was letting in millions of Palestinians in Israel. Remember, the Palestinians haven't made one concession in 60 years. They will only sign temporary agreements, based on the Mohammad - agreement in the 7th century. Abbas basically wants Olmert to let in millions of of Palestinians in Israel so the Arabs go to the conference. Abbas and the Arabs are so convinced Olmert, Barak, Peres will give into this demand. The Israeli left doesn't understand, their is no difference between Hamas and Abbas. They both want to end Israel. They just disagree on how to do it. Abbas is as much a rejectionist as Hamas. Abbas is just a better liar then Hamas.
