Sharon and Abbas scheduled to meet next Tuesday in Egypt

At the invitation of President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas are to meet next Tuesday at Sharm el Sheik. Also scheduled to be present is King Abdullah II of Jordan, together with the Egyptian President himself. The meeting will be preceded on Sunday by meetings with both sides by the new US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.

Now I understand why Secretary Rice is passing through London.

Is it too much to hope for that these two gents can work together in the best interests of both their peoples? Movement is undoubtedly required by both sides.
