Actually the question is put wrong. It should rather be: How would the ME conflict look like without the U.S. house and senate ?? It is widely known that a few years ago U.S. politicians like then secretary of state Colin Powell had great sympathy when the so called Geneva initiative was presented in Washington. It is also widely known that both the Christian Right and AIPAC were exerting tremendous pressure on U.S. legislators in order to bury the initiative before it really could get started. With success, at the end it were just a good dozen of legislators who publicly came out in support of the plan, for example senator Bill Nelson of Florida. It is hard to judge how the ME conflict would look like today without the chronic saboteurs on Capitol Hill, but it is not hard to imagine that it definitely would look better.....
