I am currently in Rome attending a conference, so I will not be able to post much this week. I apologize to all those who left comments in the past few days -- I'll add some of my own thoughts soon. I'll also have a few comments on the conference, although I probably won't be able to say much as it was confidential and not generally open to the press, as there are both Arabs and Israelis who may not want to be identified. More on that soon.
