Mecca Summit, a Special Stop on the "Roadmap"

A view of the world. A rare picture of security forces - these are Hammas (I noticed what looked like brand new weapons).

Hammas and Fatah head to Mecca for summit designed to forestall escalating struggle. It's hard to see how their current impass will get worked out. My guess is that Hammas will come out with a uniquely worded or "refined" set of objectives that may go just far enough to put the ball back in Israel's court ...
