The headline, from BBC news, is “Bush hopeful for mid-East peace.” Israeli and Palestinian leadership—the latter widely disparaged among some of its own people as unrepresentative of real Palestinian interests—meets this week in Annapolis to discuss prospects for peace.

The picture:


What Bush and Olmert are most likely hopeful for is that Abbas and the Palestinian delegation will obediently agree to terms which will in no way result in an end to Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Sadly, it is through cheap mainstream press ops such as these that the wider world becomes ever more dumb on the seldom-mentioned larger context within which these debacles take place. Thankfully, though, there are many working on the web and at large in the world to educate people on the root causes of political instability in the Middle East.
