'Man of Peace' Sharon not home when Geneva Peace Plan comes knocking: "Former justice minister Yossi Beilin, the driving force behind the so-called Geneva Initiative on the Israeli side, tried to hand over a copy at Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's residence here. But officials said they could not accept the text as the supporters had not followed proper procedures for delivering documents to the premier."

"His symbolic visit to Sharon's residence came as copies of the document were landing through mailboxes in Israel. Organisers of the initiative said that two million copies had posted at a cost of some three million shekels (around 670,000 US dollars). Arabic and even Russian versions of the document will also be made available in the coming weeks. Palestinian newspapers published the document in special 16-page supplements Sunday"
