Olmert, Jewish leaders to meet



Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is meeting with U.S. Jewish leaders.

Olmert is to meet Tuesday evening with leaders of Jewish organizations in the wake of the joint Israeli-Palestinian pledge to endeavor to achieve peace by the end of 2008.

Some groups have been unequivocally supportive of the talks in Annapolis, Md., while others have been more qualified out of the concern that the Palestinians are not ready for such an accelerated process and will be unable to meet security requirements.
