ABSTRACT
Prospects for progress in the movement toward Middle East peace do not appear good. While the Palestinians have expressed support for President George W. Bush's “road map” to peace, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has refused to formally accept it. Instead, he has said that Israel has 15 reservations about the plan, and will not carry out one of the plan's key requirements in the foreseeable future. Proponents of peace in Israel recognize Sharon's approach very well. According to them, He never openly rejects any diplomatic initiative. Rather, he accepts it and then adds some remarks and reservations.
