Tony Blair going to Israel

Is he planning to cash in on some of that political capital he earned with the White House in Iraq?
Israel's concern is that Mr Blair could nudge George Bush towards a firmer stand on issues such as the expansion of Jewish settlements and, if Palestinian violence largely stops, pressing Mr Sharon to re-engage with the US-led 'road map'.
The Israelis are apparently "dismayed". That's a good sign.
