Conference or Summit of Annapolis, as it was called at the meeting this week in the United States, in which you attempted to mark a new phase by which the parties undertake to reach an agreement until the end of 2008, was a show like few others. Unlike other summits like Camp David, Camp David II, Sharm Sheikh, Wye, Madrid and others, where there was possibly just a few indices that they threatened the completion of an agreement, this time all indications say that this Summit will fail. The political situation of the participants is the first indication that this so-called new stage is nothing more than a slogan and mere desire does not have possibilities of materialize. Ending his mandate, which does not have force Bush this enough to drive is to arrive at an agreement. Abu Mazen, only represents part of the Palestinians before the rise of Hamas. Beau Bikoff often addresses the matter in his writings.
The violent demonstrations against the Summit, with deaths and injuries are nothing more than an indication that Hamas is very likely try shortly the seizure of power in Judea and Samaria. The must be added to this of the Hamas of seeking to derail agreements attempting to carry out terrorist attacks. Prime Minister Olmert continues under the sight of israeli justice, although the Police yesterday recommended closing the case in which it was suspected benefited his friends in the sale of Bank Leumi shares. Other cases in which is being investigated, the Winograd Commission that must make known its verdict on the handling of the war, the Coalition weak and low public support for the steps that intends to produce, are all indices that Annapolis will be certainly remembered only as failure largest which is negotiated or rather seeks to give away the land of Israel.
