Israeli intelligence services said in a joint document that there will be no chance to implement the understandings that might be reached in a U.S.-sponsored peace summit on the Middle East, local media said Thursday.
"Even if understandings are reached in Annapolis, the chances of implementing them in the field are almost zero," Army Radio quoted the report conducted by Israeli General Security Service (Shin Bet), the Mossad and military intelligence as saying.
Palestinian National Authority (PNA) President Mahmoud Abbas is powerless to control the Palestinian territories, said Israeli intelligence services.
"There is a total disconnection between the leadership and the Palestinian people," said the report, noting that the PNA " has no security apparatus capable of implementing agreements. The existing (security) forces are totally corrupt."
Despite the dire forecast regarding the Palestinians, the intelligence community said that Israel should consider the upcoming Annapolis peace summit as an historic opportunity for Israel to garner international support, including from the Arab representatives.
In July, U.S. President George W. Bush proposed to hold an international conference this fall to include Israel, the PNA and some of their Arab neighbors to help restart the stalled Mideast peace talks.
On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced that the Mideast peace conference will take place in the last week of November in Annapolis, Maryland.
