Turning Point


I feel very strongly that we are at a major turning point in Middle East history. Can these four men, Mubarak, Olmert, Abbas, and King Abdullah turn history around?! Can they rise to greatness at this moment in time?

Speaking about great men, Shakespeare tells us (in Twelfth Night) that "some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them!"

In the current situation it's clear that the "Middle East Four" have just had "greatness thrust upon them!"

Now we'll see if these guys can bear up under the load and take their place in history. Or will the meeting in Sharm turn out to be just another empty photo op? ...and a slippery slide to Iranian domination of our region.

Let's hear your take on the situation. What's your opinion? Nu?
