Secretary Rice is in the Middle East from November 5 to 9. She will meet with Quartet counterparts and senior government officials to discuss negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians, as well as regional issues. She will address efforts to achieve peace in the region consistent with the Annapolis process and the shared-goal of a two-state solution. The Bush administration has said that an agreement before the end of the year is not likely. Previous U.S. administrations have also sought to broker an agreement.
In your opinion, what will it take to reach an agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians?
