Progress in Palestine


The Palestinian Authority won ringing support from the European Union, the United States and other world powers for an ambitious raft of reforms intended to create a viable Palestinian state once an elusive Middle East peace becomes reality. The endorsement from 23 nations and six major international organisations, including the United Nations, came during a day of talks in London haunted by a suicide bomb attack in Tel Aviv four days earlier that killed five people and shattered a fragile Israeli-Palestinian ceasefire. "We've got a script that is clearer today that ever before," said British Prime Minister Tony Blair, host of the London Meeting on Supporting the Palestinian Authority. "Everyone now accepts the two-state solution.... Doing it is the great task, but nobody can be in any doubt about what people want us to do," he said.
This will continue to be a challenge to achieve, but I am pleased at the progress being made.

Having gotten rid of one of the terrorists, now we need to start work on the other...

P's right, but I fear he is going to single out the wrong 'perp'. Once the PA reigns in terror groups, peace will flourish now that Israel has shown a willingness for peace, too.

It's amazing how much progress has been made since the godfather met his maker.

Oh, and what originally made me comment: this conference, which gathered to discuss peace, just happened to not invite the 'other' party!! Anybody miss the fact Israel wasn't there?? So what, everybody else was going to decided how to solve this without Israel? Geez, we've almost changed the mindset, but not quite yet.
