Nearly 30 religious leaders petitioned President Bush to dispatch an envoy to push Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Officials from Jewish, Muslim and Christian groups signed a letter to Bush urging him to appoint an envoy to the region now that PLO head Mahmoud Abbas, considered a relative moderate by Israel and the United States, has been elected Palestinian Authority president. Bush appointed several temporary envoys during his first term, but they failed to bring the parties back to peace talks because of rampant violence.
