President Bush meets Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon at Bush's ranch in Texas, focusing on Sharon's plan to withdraw Israeli troops and settlers from the Gaza Strip.

There did not appear to be a resolution on differences over the expansion of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Both leaders said the Palestinians need to do more to confront and end terrorism.
