Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and leading Palestinian presidential candidate Mahmoud Abbas tell Newsweek they are willing to meet on the future of Israel's disengagement from Gaza and the so-called "road map" to peace in the region. Both face opposition in their own ranks. Hear NPR's Liane Hansen and NPR's Linda Gradstein.
