US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is scheduled to speak Wednesday evening at a Gala event of a pro-Palestinian organization in Washington. Rice will be the keynote speaker at the first annual gala of the American Task Force on Palestine, an organization promoting in the US the idea of an independent Palestinian state. According to the organizers of the event, Rice will address the issue of the Palestinian - Israeli conflict and will outline the efforts made by the Bush administration to materialize the President's vision of a two state solution in the Middle East. The event, taking place in Washington, will also be addressed by the Saudi Ambassador to the US Prince Turki al-Faisal, head of the PLO mission in Washington Afif Safieh and by John Sununu, former chief of staff for President George H.W. Bush. A portion of the proceedings of the gala event will be donated to the Palestinian Humanitarian Fund.
