France) Background to the summit The Al-Aqsa Intifada, which began in September 2000, left over 5,000 Palestinian (Palestinians) and Israeli casualties and took extensive toll on the both economies and societies. The cycle of violence persisted all through this period, except for the short-lived Hudna in the summer of 2003; neither side was willing to negotiate until fire was halted.

These trust-building steps, together with renewed security coordination between the two sides and the backing of the U.S. (United States), Jordan and Egypt led to the agreement on holding the summit.

In 2003, he published ''Coercing Virtue: The Worldwide Rule Of Judges'', an American Enterprise Institute book which includes Bork's philosophical objections to the phenomenon of incorporating international ethical and legal guidelines into the fabric of domestic law. In particular, he focuses on the problems he sees as inherent in the federal judiciary of three nations, Israel, Canada, and the United States, countries where he believes the courts have grossly exceeded their discretionary powers, and which have discarded precedent and common law, and in their place substituted their own liberal judgment. Outside Canada, Israel added a device similar to the notwithstanding clause to its Basic Law (Basic Laws of Israel) in 1992.
