The Swedish pop group ABBA today attended a meeting with President Bush to see whether they could contribute to the peace process in Israel.
"We have a long history of neutrality in Sweden but we also really enjoy a good sing-a-long", explained band member, Benny Andersson. "I was sitting in my sauna thinking about what I could do to improve life over there and suddenly I had a eureka moment. Mamma Mia! Let's settle this with a televised song contest of ABBA songs!
"Yes, that's right", enthuses fellow singer, Agneta Fältskog, "Like Sweden, Israel is in the annual Eurovision Song Contest too so there is clearly sufficient common ground at grassroots level to create a lasting peaceful solution."
ABBA's success was phenomenal during the 1970s with hits including: 'Money, Money, Money', 'Gimme. Gimme, Gimme' and 'The Winner Takes it All'
