Will British Prime Minster Tony Blair push President Bush into action on the Palestinian issue?

That is the reason Blair has come to the White House today. He is signalling that the Bush Administration is focusing too much on Iraq. Blair believes that the Palestinian issue is the major impediment to peace, that peace in the Middle East lies through Jerusalem not through Baghdad.

Will Blair be able to persaude Bush? It will require a major shift of thinking in the Bush Administration to do so. But Blair's advice should be listened to!
