LOL! The thought of Gere sitting in all those meetings just makes me giggle! I'm sure he has a lot to bring to the table on subjects such as hair gel and stage makeup.

Isn't he a follower of the Dalai Lama?

The big news out of the conference so far comes from Arutz Sheva (emphasis added):

<< King Abdullah issued a warning today that Israel had better not suffice with a withdrawal just from Gaza. He said that if Israel does not also soon withdraw from areas in Judea and Samaria, "the peace process will be impeded." He made the statements to the Al-Ayam newspaper in London.

Peres met with Abdullah yesterday, and said that Israel should begin negotiating with the PA immediately after the Gaza pullback. This contrasts with Prime Minister Sharon's position, which is that Israel will wait to see if the PA fulfills its Road Map commitments.>>
