    WASHINGTON — Cancel the cozy days at Camp David, Md. Put away the underused running shoes. When it comes to weekend enjoyment, all President Bush seems to need is some winding trails and a helmet. And his mountain bike. Bush recently has been logging scores of miles on a secluded spread in Beltsville, Md., and the rolling hills of Quantico, Va., far from the White House. "He's become a biking maniac," said Mark McKinnon, his media adviser and frequent cycling companion. What began as a way for the president to stay fit, after three decades of running ruined his knees,...

    Description: Clayton Swisher talks about the 2000 Camp David summit between Ehud Barak, Yasser Arafat, and Bill Clinton and argues that the popular understanding of what happened there is inaccurate. Mr. Swisher says that while Mr. Arafat is largely blamed for spoiling the negotiations, the U.S. and Israeli teams were just as, if not more, responsible for the talks falling apart. He also challenges reports that claim that Mr. Arafat was offered upwards of 98 percent of the occupied territories in exchange for peace. This event was held at American University in Washington, DC. Includes Q&A. Author Bio: Clayton Swisher,...

    ...There are three important points to understand before making any move on the Palestinian issue. The first concerns Arafat. While there is no doubt that Arafat's duplicitous character and inherent opportunism were major obstacles to peace, it would be wrong to blame him exclusively for the lack of progress towards peace. When the crunch came at the end of 2000, Arafat could not accept what the Israelis offered while the Israelis were not prepared to offer what Arafat wanted — a blanket acceptance of the right of return for Palestinian refugees and their descendants. Palestinians now living outside the historic...

    AMERICAN JEWS CHOOSE HARRI-KERRY FOR ISRAEL By Don Feder Where do American Jewish voters go for guidance? Apparently, this year we’re heeding advice from Tehran, from the rabidly anti-Semitic former prime minister of Malaysia and – of course – from our pals in the Palestinian Authority. Sorry, that’s a bit of black humor. What I mean to say is that – in one of those ironic twists of fate -- it’s likely that this year a majority of Jewish voters will cast their ballots for the presidential candidate favored by Israel’s most implacable enemies. According to The American Jewish Committee’s...

    The President flew from Camp David, using the Hagerstown, MD airport, to Charleston, WV, but not before he and accompanying staff and Cabinet members had to change jets. AF1 had a faulty engine and another jet had to be flown from Andrews AFB for the President and his entourage to use. The President missed a Church service that he had planned on attending in WV, but said that he didn't miss it because of the sermon but because of a faulty engine and necessary jet change. He spoke to an enthusiastic crowd in Charleston, where applause interrupted his speech after...
