The Annapolis meeting is nothing less than a train wreck waiting to
happen; it's like two trains on the same track speeding directly at
each other. One is driven by Bush and Rice the other has two
causalities in it, the Arabs who call themselves "Palestinians" and
the Israeli people. Neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians want
this Annapolis meeting to take place at this time but they can't stop
the train driven by Bush and Rice who are hell bent for destroying the
When the two trains meet in Annapolis there will be an explosion heard
around the world and it will be felt by not just the Jews and the
Arabs but the ripples will reverberate through out the world's economy
and politics. We here in Israel are bracing for the train wreck
knowing things could get really bad. But what other choice do we have
other than to fight once again asking God to give us victory
--- Bush and the Saudis refuse to give up.

JERUSALEM - In exchange for Saudi Arabia attending this week's U.S.-
sponsored Israeli-Palestinian conference in Annapolis, the Israeli
government agreed to recognize the importance of a Saudi-sponsored
"peace initiative" in which the Jewish state is called upon to
evacuate the strategic Golan Heights, the entire West Bank and eastern
sections of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, WND has learned.
WND obtained a draft Israeli-Palestinian declaration to be presented
at the Annapolis conference and to serve as an official outline of a
final settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority
The wording is still being negotiated by both sides, but according to
Israeli diplomatic sources, Israel agreed to a Saudi request that the
declaration document include reference to a Saudi-backed Arab Peace
Initiative, first presented in 2002 and reissued earlier this year at
a meeting of the Arab League, an umbrella association of Mideast Arab
When it was first revealed, the Arab Initiative was heavily criticized
by the U.S. and Israel because the text requires the Jewish state to
withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza and allow for the creation of a
Palestinian capital in Jerusalem, including the evacuation of the
Temple Mount - Judaism's holiest site.
The Initiative also called for a full withdrawal from the Golan
Heights, strategic mountainous territory that looks down on Israeli
population centers and that was twice used by Syria to launch ground
invasions into the Jewish state.
But now Israel has recognized the Arab Initiative as a precondition
for Saudi Arabia to attend the Annapolis summit, according to
diplomatic sources in Jerusalem.
While Israel doesn't commit itself to the Arab Initiative's
requirements, a clause in the current draft of the Israeli-Palestinian
declaration slated for the Annaplis conference and obtained by WND
reads: "We recognize the critical supporting role of Arab and Muslim
states and the importance of the Arab Peace Initiative."
The draft declaration is subject to final changes up to Tuesday's
Saudi Arabia announced yesterday it would send its foreign minister,
Prince Saud al-Faisal, to the Annapolis summit after the Arab League
decided to back the Israeli-Palestinian conference.
Syria has not yet officially decided whether to attend but has made
clear it would not send a representative to Annapolis unless the Golan
Heights was placed on the agenda.
Syria is in a military alliance with Iran and is accused by the U.S.
of supporting the insurgency in Iraq and generating instability in
Lebanon. Israel says Syria regularly ships Iranian rockets and
weaponry to the Lebanese Hezbollah militia. The chiefs of the Hamas
and Islamic Jihad Palestinian terror groups are based in Damascus.
The U.S. extended an invitation to Syria without any preconditions.
While many in Washington have high hopes for Annapolis, recent polls
here show Israelis are less optimistic.
A survey sponsored last week by the Israel Policy Center for Promoting
Parliamentary Democracy and Jewish Values in Israeli Public Life found
77 percent of Israelis believe Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud
Abbas lacked the power to prevent attacks from the West Bank.
Sixty-one percent of the general Israeli public opposes a withdrawal
from most of the West Bank and handing the strategic territory to the
If Israel indeed evacuated the West Bank, some 55 percent of Israelis
believe Palestinians will use the territory to fire rockets into
Jewish population centers, and 65 percent believe there is a high or
very high chance Hamas would take control of the area, according to
the new poll. Hamas leaders in recent days warned their terror group
would take over the West Bank if Israel withdrew.
