I see "states" and I automatically think of the U.S. ... and I'm not even American. Shocking, isn't it?

Jordan's King Abdullah used a speech at an economic forum on Friday to push the idea of expanding an Arab initiative for peace with Israel to include the entire Muslim world.

The U.S.-allied king told the Times of London this week that U.S. President Barack Obama wanted to promote a peace plan involving all Muslim countries and not just Arab nations.

Obama is due to address the region in a speech in Cairo next month and foreign ministers of the 57-nation Organisation of the Islamic Conference are due to meet in Syria on May 23.

Netanyahu is canny. It'll be interesting to see how two consummate politicians like Netanyahu and Obama face up to each other. But as far as peace between the Palestinians and the Isralelis? Not in my life time. Nor my grandchildren's life time. Just too many hatreds in the road to let peace to get in.
