NotesNews: 7 Apr: "Sharon's actions are threatening the whole region," said Marwan Muasher, the Jordanian foreign minister, who headed for Washington with a letter of appeal for President George W Bush from King Abdullah. Even Israelis, largely supportive of Sharon's operation, began to wonder if he had an exit strategy. By Thursday the Americans had begun to rethink their hands-off approach. A week after the tanks had rolled into Ramallah, Bush announced that he was sending Colin Powell, his secretary of state, to the Middle East. Bush criticised Arafat, saying the desperate situation that the Palestinian leader found himself in "was of his own creation", but for the first time he demanded that the Israelis make political concessions, anathema to Sharon, who has insisted that there must be a ceasefire before any peace negotiations can resume. [Sunday Times] News: 7 Apr: In an open-necked shirt and worn leather jacket, President George W Bush was dressed for cowboy country as he welcomed Tony Blair to Texas on Friday evening. But his casual appearance belied the more sombre issues weighing heavily on this weekend's summit. [Sunday Times]
