ABSTRACT
The day before Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's White House meeting with U.S. President George W. Bush, the Institute for Research Middle Eastern Policy and the Council for the National Interest (CNI) co-sponsored an April 13, 2004 panel discussion at the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill. Panelists examined Sharon's conditional unilateral withdrawal from Gaza Strip and Bush's likely agreement. CNI president Eugene Bird called for the 2004 Republican and Democratic presidential platforms to include planks calling for the immediate recognition of Palestine as an independent state, the establishment of a new Middle East Peace Alliance in order to end conflict and ensure regional stability and for revisiting the "road map for peace."
