      Sharm el-Sheikh agreement ends in failure, adopts vague statement

      Occupied Jerusalem: 17 October - The Sharm-el-Sheikh has apparently failed
      to reach a clear agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority on
      putting an end to Israel's bloody repression of Palestinians protesting
      the Israeli occupation of their land and the desecration by Zionists of
      Islamic holy places in Jerusalem.

      However, in a ruse designed to blur the fiasco, the summit issued a
      vaguely-worded statement saying the two sides (Israel and the PA) agreed
      to a cease-fire and return to the status quo ante (the situation that
      preceded the current wave of violence).

      Egyptian President Husni Mubarak and US President Bill Clinton both made
      brief statements, stressing the need to stop the violence immediately.

      However, their statements were terse, vague and lacking essential details,
      which suggests the two sides were still sharply divided and that summit
      effectively failed to achieve truly tangible results.

      In his statement, Clinton said a fact-finding committee would be formed by
      the United states in coordination with UN Secretary-General Kufi Annan to
      establish how the violence started.

      One of the PA key demands has been the formation of an international
      inquiry commission to look into Israeli atrocities which has claimed over
      120 Palestinian lives.

      Clinton didn't say if the committee's recommendations would have practical
      implications.

      Another ominous sign was the abrupt termination of the summit immediately
      after President Clinton finished his statement, which suggest that the
      summiteers didn't have much to say to the media. (end)
