    Not much came out of the Madrid conference. Oslo came about when Israel negotiated "behind the back" of the US and Madrid negotiators. And the peace with Jordan was the direct result of Oslo. There is no need for an international conference which will just apply more pressure on Israel. The greatest int'l roadblock to peace today is the US. They believe negotiations with Hamas and Syria are illegitimate. But Syria supports Israel's enemies because they want the Golan back. They are not "evil" for the sake of evil. Steps towards peace: 1. Make peace with Syria. (They will get the Golan back.) Result: Hizballah is gone. Also, Hamas and Palestinian support is gone. The Pal's become lonely and vulnerable. 2. Negotiate peace with the Palestinians. Hamas was about ready to sign on the Prisoners' Document, implying 67 borders. The Geneva Accords shows how all outstanding problems will be settled with the expected negotiator Abbas.
