Please keep us updated... And what Bush is calling for is what ISRAEL IS CALLING FOR. Bush and Israel agree.
I'm trying. The speech is basically saying there will be no Palestinian State for the foreseeable future. He is taking, IMO, a harder line than any could have anticipated.
Exactly. This was all about the current Palestinian problems- nothing about Israel. This proposal was conditional- either you do this or you get nothing. The entire first part of his speech, you could substitute the word Iraq for Palestinian.
The key will be to see what Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan will say. I suspect they will remain pretty quiet- a silent, supportive quiet. I think they were told by the Bush admin what was going to come down. And he did mention Egypt and Jordan as key players.
LOVED GWB calling out all Arab states regarding supporting terrorism. I do wish he would have said something about accountability for that- ahem, Saudi Arabia.
