President Bush urged Israel Tuesday to consider the consequences of its actions on the peace process. Standing next to Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said he wanted to move ahead but defended Israel's building of a security fence and insisted anew that all terrorism by Palestinians must stop.

Bush ought to listen to Sharon on the fence thing. Fences make for good neighbors, and we need one (or maybe two).

My commitment to the security Israel is unshakable."

Now, you can't empower the terrorists who want to destroy Israel, and at the same time make this statement.

Being against the fence is a totally irrational response that, unfortunetly, I am sure a lot of people feel. It it totally logical and rational to build the fence. I'm all for it.

I don't think it matters whether GWB listens to Sharon or not. The fence IS going ahead as planned. That is a good thing of Israel.

I'm not sure there is really any such thing as a "peace process" if it involves the "Palestinians."

The fence makes perfect sense to me. I wonder if GW is just giving "lip service" that sounds like he has objections to it.

Given the consequences of having let themselves be sat on by the US for decades and suffering so badly during these wonderful times of peace, perhaps Israel should consider trying a different approach.

Construction workers build an addition to the outpost of Haroe at the Jewish settlement of Eli between the West Bank towns of Ramallah and Nablus Monday, July 28, 2003. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is in the United States to discuss the road map for peace which calls for, among other stipulations, a complete freeze on construction in Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza and a dismantling of all the outposts erected throughout the West Bank since 2001.

Construction workers build a security fence dividing farmland of the Palestinian town of Beit Sahur, bottom, from the Jewish settlement of Har Homa, background, Tuesday July 22, 2003. Within days, Israel's year-old fence, trench, and wall project to try and keep Palestinian suicide bombers from crossing its frontiers, will completely divide Jerusalem's southern and northern outskirts from the West Bank, slicing through Palestinian backyards and farmlands and cutting off some outlying hamlets from the city.

The view that Israel shouldn't build a fence is ludicrous.

We are rounding up terrorists in Iraq, going house to house in search of those killing our soldiers ... but Israel can't even build a fence?

I hope these words of Bush are just that... words. But words have consequences also.

"Bush warns Israelis about dangers to peace process; consider the consequences of its actions"

Israel's actions? Bush must be referring to when Israel barbecues innocent Palestinians for picnics or when they harvest hearts from involuntary Palestinian donors.

Otherwise, WTF is he referring to?

What is Israel doing, or would be doing, that has negative "consequences of its actions on the peace process"?

Catching terrorist, building fences to separate from the barbarians, not wanting to release murderers, trying to live peacefully in the ancient Jewish homeland?

Tell me Mr. Bush, what evil that will have negative consequence on peace are the Israelis doing.

Want to know what the peaceful Palestinians are doing. They are continuing to kill, to harm and to plan mayhem..

No argument for me about it being good for Israel. I only wish GWB would see from their example that it would be good for US to secure our own borders.

Encouraged by "settlements" screaming Ostrich-headed encouragers of Sand-Nazis as well as the Bush WH demand to release more Hasmas and IJ terrs, an 11-year-old Israeli girl was shot in West Bank terror attack

Jerusalem Post ^ | Jul. 29, 2003 | JOEL LEYDEN

An 11-year-old Israeli girl was shot inside a car as she was traveling with her parents in the West Bank last night, a military source told The Jerusalem Post .

"The terror attack took place near the Jewish settlement of Itzhar, west of Nablus at 1:30 a.m.," the source said. "She was lightly wounded in her legs and the IDF evacuated her by helicopter to Belinson hospital in Petah Tikva where she is now receiving medical treatment."

There were four other passengers, including children, in the car who escaped injury, the source said. The car was damaged with numerous bullet holes penetrating its side.

The spokesperson stated that a ban was now in effect preventing Israelis to travel in areas which are governed by the PA. "We now have an increased number of threats against civilians in the West Bank, where Palestinians terrorists are prepared to use several tactics, such as roadside bombs, automatic gunfire and kidnappings against Israeli civilians."

The IDF and security forces are now searching the area of the attack and expect to be making arrests in the coming hours.

The more I think about it, GWB is making a very big deal out of this fence thing. In most parts of the US, there are numerous gated communities which keep out the "bad" guys or at least let them control access to their precious property. So, in Israel with serious life and death issues, as to the very bad guys (and gals) who only want to gain access to the settlements to cause murder and mayhem, this is a "problem" in GWB's mind.

Lets just hope this is another example of GWB giving tacit approval (wink, wink, Ari) to the Israeli's plans and only giving lip service to the Pali's.

Otherwise, much of Boca Raton, Southern California and the rest of the U.S. should put armed guards at their gates. (Oops, most already have armed guards at the gates).

That rumor has been debunked. Israel did release a prisoner named Mohammad Atta, but it was a different Mohammad Atta than the one involved in the 9/11 attacks.

It’s a matter of policy. Israel is building a fence like this

US policy calls for fences like this

which does lead to things like this

but I’m sure you can understand the policy difference.

President Bush,

How about instead of whining about the Israeli fence, you build US one on the border with Mexico?

Since we never signed the silly landmine treaty, we could reinforce it with those. In the interest of multiculturalism, you can even post warning signs in Spanish, Portugese, and even Arabic for good measure.

Maybe President Bush needs a reminder of the last time America supported Arab terrorists:

CAN HE SPELL "BLOWBACK"?

What is it that you think the palestinians want?

Here's what the Palestinians want: a completely ethnically-cleansed Jew-free "Palestinian state" and a "right of return" for millions into what's left of Israel so that they can push the rest of the Jews into the sea.

That's for starters. Afterwards, they'd want Western foreign aid to help them live better in the disaster they'd create in the former Israel.

I of course want to reserve judgement, give the benefit of the doubt etc.

The problem is, every time one of these "initiatives" )camp david, oslo, now the roadkill roadmap) is put forward and then fails, when they restart the pals have more power, more weapons, more money to buy more weapons, and more support to become a legitimate state with the power to create a formal military and to issue passports for flight students to come to America...

This country is ignoring the blowback that creating a pal state will bring...

TO AMERICA.
