    Bush is causing untold harm to the US with his "good vs. evil" view. And I thought the reference by Liel to "cowboys vs. Indians" might explain how a simpleton American would acquire such a view of the world. What troubles me is that Israel is also being injured here, not only the US. Peace between Israel and Syria, which can only happen now if the US joins the deal, can pull the linchpin out the Iran constellation in the Middle East. With Syria at peace, it will have to discontinue support for Hizballah and the Palestinian rejectionist groups. Without weapons, Hizballah will have to finally become a political party. Israel will get peace with Lebanon as well. Syria now is being threatened by the US and must keep Iran as a protector and supporter. But to replace Iran by the US in such a role will be a dream come true for Syria. And from the US point of view, it will get a better border situation with Iraq, and isolating Iran further, thus demoralizing them. Pretty good deal, which Jim Baker understand well, as does Liel. As far as Hamas, they will not come to the conference, but they will sens Abbas to negotiate and then have a referendum. Who could ask for anything more? The Saudis should engineer another Unity Government in the PA before the Conference. They should tell Bush to listen to people who understand what is going on, and not to the voices in his head.
