According to DRC-Dispute Resolution Center, mediation is a process in which a third-party neutral, whether one mediator or more, acts as a facilitator to assist in resolving a dispute between two or more parties. It is a non-adversarial approach to conflict resolution, where the parties generally communicate directly; the role of the mediator is to facilitate communication between the parties, assist them in focusing on the real issues of the dispute, and generate options for settlement.
There won't be any conflict mediation at that Annapolis Conference. There are no "third-party neutral" mediators. U.S.'s Rice and Europe's Blair have very well-defined and well-publicized agendas. Actually they have the same aim. It's not "conflict resolution." It's the establishment of another Arab State in the Land of Israel. Great Britain, Europe, the United States and the rest of the countries in the world have always planned to divide the original British Mandate in three.
A Hashemite sheik was given the section east of the Jordan River, which is now called Jordan. Then, although originally it was thought that the Jews would get the remainder, the countries of the world then decided to divide that land west of the Jordan into two countries, one they would call Palestine and the bit remaining would be given to the Jews. They had a plan to divide Jerusalem or have it united under international rule. Their proposal was to give the Jews bits of land so indefensible that the country would be destroyed soon after its establishment.
Considering that there never was a "Palestinian People," and there never was any unity, tradition, army etc., Hashemite Jordan had no problems taking over most of that territory in the Arab war against the newly re-established Jewish Nation called The State of Israel. That's how it stood post 1948. Only two countries in the entire world recognized Hashemite Jordan's sovereignty over the "west bank" and eastern Jerusalem. They were Great Britain and Pakistan.
Blair and Rice are trying to "re"establish that country which had never existed, since there never was a national entity in the Land of Israel, other than a Jewish one. The Hashemites aren't native to the area of the Jordan River. Great Britain supported it, and the world has accepted it.
The Pseudistinians are just a bunch of anti-Jewish Arab terrorists. That is the unifying factor. They don't want peace with us. They just want us dead and destroyed.
Blair, Rice, Bush and the rest of the Annapolis organizers have one aim. That aim is to establish a Pseudistinian State at the expense of the State of Israel. They don't care what happens to us here. They are racists demanding that Our Land be judenrein, cleansed of Jews.
Olmert, with all of his legal problems, is looking for a refuge and world praise. There's something very sick in the Israeli psyche. I guess that it's the modern version of the need to wander forty years. It's a long "forty years," but it will be much longer if this Annapolis Conference takes place.
Olmert's Government and the Israeli Left are lying to the Israeli People. They're trying to promote this Annapolis Conference as some sort of "peace conference," but it isn't. The reason why the borders and the division of Jerusalem are the central theme and in the news all the time is because its aim is the establishment of an Arab terror state in the Land of Israel, G-d forbid, but we humans have to stop it!
The United States' Condelezza Rice has a dream. Her dream is to be the mother or midwife to a Pseudisitinian State at the expense of our State of Israel. The Israeli Left thinks that its support for such a state would make it immune to terror, but nobody is immune to terror. Terror must be eradicated at its source!
Rice, Blair and Bush are endangering world peace. If they, G-d forbid, succeed in their aim, history will judge them harshly. And history will also condemn all the Leftists who support the terrorist state and all those who remain silent, even more than the post-World War II historians condemn the Germans who "obeyed orders" and murdered six million Jews and millions of other innocents.
