SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION: MIDDLE EAST: ANNAPOLIS PEACE CONFERENCE;
"One Year For Peace"
Center-right national circulation daily O Estado de S. Paulo
editorialized (12/1): "In the USG-sponsored meeting between Israeli
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas,
the search for peace resumed the Road Map, a 2003 initiative that
seemed forgotten. Responding to a President Bush's request, the two
leaders agreed to start negotiations, under U.S. supervision, aimed
at a final agreement within one year.... The most significant
[event] was the presence in the peace conference of Saudi
Arabia's Foreign Minister, Prince Saud al Faigal.... Riyadh had
never been genuinely sympathetic with the Palestinians. Its
opposition to Israel's existence was always merely religious.... The
Saudis are far from ignoring that the hidden element in Annapolis
was Iran. The Iraqi catastrophe warned the Americans against
launching a unilateral confrontation with Tehran's Shiite regime....
No Islamic government will support the neutralization of the
presumable Iranian threat while the occupation of Palestine
persists.... The US is the world's only political power capable of
making Israelis and Palestinians coexist in two viable, safe and
legitimate states.... Perhaps Washington has not yet realized that
US foreign policy's first priority is peace between Arabs and Jews,
because nothing is more essential than that to fight terrorism."
This website hosts an archive of all 251,287 US Embassy diplomatic cables that were released by WikiLeaks between November 28, 2010 and September 2, 2011.
While the cables are generally available at http://wikileaks.org/cablegate.html
, we find it hard to search or even navigate the site to read the cables.
We have made all 251,287 cables available here at Dazzlepod with the hope to make it easier for readers to browse, search, share and discuss about the released cables.
The cables are periodically selected and posted to our Twitter page
and Facebook page
for readers to review them.
