Bush to launch Mideast talks at W.House summit
By Matt Spetalnick
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President George W. Bush will revive long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at a White House summit on Wednesday but will find it hard to meet a deadline for securing a deal before he leaves office.
Bush is bringing together Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas one day after a 44-nation conference where both pledged to try to forge a peace treaty by the end of 2008 that would create a Palestinian state.
It would be a great way to round out the remaining time Bush has in office. But it will be to no avail; as long as the Palestinian PEOPLE refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish State, it will never work. Hatred burns a lot deeper and brighter than any handshake or treaty can extinguish..
