On the one hand, I wouldn't make too much of this, but on the other hand, it is a rather significant step for the Israelis. Perhaps this could become an "only Nixon can go to China" situation:

Israel accepted a U.S.-backed "road map" for Middle East peace which commits the Jewish state for the first time to the establishment of a neighboring Palestinian state.

Endorsement by Israel's rightist cabinet Sunday was an about-face for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, a lifelong champion of Jewish settlement in the West Bank and Gaza Strip where Palestinians have been waging a 32-month-old revolt.
