From President Bush's press meeting with General Musharraf of Pakistan:
And the solution in the Middle East is for there to be a world effort to help the Palestinians develop a state that is truly free -- one that's got an independent judiciary, one that's got a civil society, one that's got the capacity to fight off the terrorists, one that allows for dissent, one in which people can vote. And President Musharraf can play a big role in helping achieve that objective.

None of us can convince the Palestinians to say -- or make the Palestinians adhere to this point of view, but we can help convince them.
Just a little convincing, that's all that's needed.
