If both Israel and the U.S. have agreed to include Syria and Lebanon to the Washington summit, then the very given party or "enemy entity" which we have immediate contention with should not participate in the road to peace? This would not be prudent. If Israel and the Quartet want our 'archenemy' Hamas & other factions to accept the core issues which are planned for announcement before the summit and they will accept the terms of the principles of the agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, then wouldn't a cease-fire be a worthwhile attempt? The expectation that the peace process happens over a number of weeks or months with no serious concessions by both parties is really illogical. By bringing about some element of calm and trust, the majority of people will support not only the Road Map towards peace, but the highway which will be adjacent to the road.
