    The Israelis want to deal, they say so openly. Barak and Zahal see it as the possible success of the conference(see articles over the past few days) It's Syria that pulled out of Annapolis - though predictably, it can reverse its decision just to be davka. You should talk to them and point out the advantages of negotiating with Israel. The time is ripe. If you look at the document that Amira leaked today you'll see that it's Bush's image in history that is being fostered and protected and nothing else. Given this Bush would be all for it and his influence might well be persuasive on the Israeli side. Of course on the other hand, there's the article in Al Hayat that Cipora quoted, showing Syria's determination that nothing should change. (And PLEASE no personal comments in response. I hope we're past that stage here)
