News Brief

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said only Ariel Sharon can bring peace between Israel and the Palestinians. “Sharon, of all the Israeli politicians, is the only one capable of achieving peace with the Palestinians,” Mubarak said Sunday in an interview with Spain’s ABC newspaper. “He has the ability to take difficult decisions, commit to what he says and carry it out.” Mubarak praised Sharon’s decision last week to quit the Likud Party.
