((As Arab nations gathered in Beirut, President Bush is urging them to seize the moment, and vote for a Saudi inspired land-for-peace deal. They're set to debate the idea Wednesday, in which they would offer Israel to drop their state of war with Israel, If Israel gives the Palestinians all the land it gained in the 1967 war. The White House is pressuring Israel, to make sure Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat would be allowed to attend. American officials told Arafat, the price for freedom, is less Palestinian violence. Ari Fleisher/ White House Spokesperson: 'President believes that Chairman Arafat can and must do more, in order for that violence to be reduced.' There were no attacks in Israel proper over the weekend, but two Jewish settlers were killed by Palestinian gunmen in the West Bank, and nine Palestinians died in clashes with Israeli security forces. Israeli officials say that record is not good enough to earn Arafat a trip to Beirut. Palestinian officials also canceled Monday's joint truce meeting...giving the hawks in the Israeli cabinet another reason to keep Arafat confined to the West Bank. And according to some Palestinian officials, Arafat himself is not so sure about this trip. He is reportedly seeking assurances from Washington that if he leaves, the Israelis really will let him come back. KD, CBS News, Jerusalem.))

This is Denzel's second Oscar, having won best supporting actor in 1989. He's kept a high profile ever since, but Berry is philosophical about her future.

Will tonight change the industry? I don't know. But if it changes the minds of those people who felt defeated, if now they feel hopeful, eventually those inspired hearts will make a change. I believe that. :13
