French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Friday he would tell Prime Minister Ehud Olmert next week that "now is the time" to make peace with the Palestinians. Olmert was planning to visit Paris on Monday, and Sarkozy said he would make the same case as the one he made to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas last month in New York. "My message to Mr. Olmert will simply be that ... time has come to make peace," Sarkozy told a news conference after an EU summit in Lisbon. "Now is the time to take risks and build a lasting peace."
