Add comment on:Jeffrey Blankfort: AIPAC Hijacks the Roadmap -- How Israel's US Lobby is Stacking the Deck
In his time as Prime Minister, Sharon had already neatly disposed of numerous international diplomatic proposals: the Mitchell Report, the Tenet Paper and the Zinni Paper, the Saudi Initiative - to name only the best known. "Still, the 'road map' initially seemed to tax his considerable talents: a paper bearing the combined imprimatur of the US, EU, Russia and the UN, which had been at the top of the diplomatic agenda for nearly a year, which was formally launched with the personal sponsorship of the US President fresh from victory in Iraq and which was immediately accepted in its entirety and without reservations by the Palestinian side. "Yet none of this seemed to deter Sharon from industriously - and, as seems at the moment, successfully - subverting and overturning that initiative, too."
