I find mr. Powels initiative to start an open forum on the middle east a step towards a better understanding between the supporters of Israel and the PA. The forum will be organised by the "Quartert": the US, EU, Russian Federation and the UN.
Our European ministers were very pleased with the offer from the US. The EU, the UN and Russia were getting frustrated because they were not envolved into any peace talks, though they are the ones who could help to get an end to this conflict.
a step towards peace
