Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met President Bush on the sidelines of the UN summit in New York marking the 60th anniversary of the creation of the world body.

And the Gaza is a good chance to start.” Sharon told the President privately that there will be no further moves to advance the peace process until Gaza is quiet.
