Postponing Annapolis BRIEFLY, in the interest of preserving and advancing the CURRENT peace proccess with Abbas, should be done until the Israeli side is willing to go all the way to the finish line THIS YEAR with the Palestinians. If not, Abbas will be lost, and also the Saudi Initiative may be lost forever, which is the true basis for the present round of talks, and should be honored and respected as such in the opening statement at Annapolis. There is a great danger that this may be the LAST opportunity for peace, to avert an irrecoverable descent into a regional, if not a global chaos and war. This is an existential moment for Israel, but also for the world, which MUST not be brushed aside, hoping for a better day. That day will never come. Today is the best day, the best chance for peace which will ever be, which requires a supreme existential effort from all parties, especially the US.
