Acceptance of Roadmap or of steps in Roadmap

Fog, smoke and mirrors

Many of us have written about the many faults of the Roadmap including its destination, (Palestine), its implementation, (Arafat will police Arafat), and its monitors, (no friends of Israel), and its premises, (the Saudi Initiative). Now its time to address the mechanism for making it acceptable.

The apparent deal between Bush and Sharon appears to be an amendment that is not an amendment and an agreement where there is no agreement. The Roadmap is beyond repair.

Dr Aaron Lerner of IMRA calls it a black day refering to Sunday when the Israeli Cabinet will be asked to approve it. His remarks are worth reading.
