I seem to recall that there is a Yiddish saying that translates as "from your mouth to God's ear", which should be any israeli's response to Mr. Bar'el's assessment of the prospect for an Annapolis agreement. This effort exists because it is part of the deal between Bush and the Saudi royal family to get the necessary Saudi backing for an attack on Iran which will shut down Iran's nuclear ambitions and its oil production. Only the Saudis have the ability to increase oil production enough to make a difference, and the price of their agreement is for Bush to pressure Israel to a palestinian state. So not only would an agreement endanger Israel, but it would also make a US attack on Iran a certainty.
