Without serious American pressure, the proposed "peace conference" is doomed and probably will be cancelled. The master liar Olmert continues his charade of "negotiations" with Abbas with an aim to avoid ANY concessions and to preserve the status quo seemingly even if that means upsetting the idiot Bush's hope of a legacy of peace in the ME. However, in light of the continuing American absolute and unconditional support for Israel and its policies, any hope for a meaningful joint statement is remote. If such a meaningful joint statement is not agreed upon and the master liar Olmert succeeds with his "declaration of bullsh*t", the quisling Abbas MUST REFUSE to attend the Nov. conference.
