  • PM aide: Bush win is victory for Mideast

    The re-election of President George Bush is a victory for a "relentless fight against terrorism," Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's top adviser, Raanan Gissin, said yesterday. Meanwhile, Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia expressed hope that Bush would return to peace making. Bush's strong support for Sharon's policies during his first term endeared him to the Israeli government, and created friction with Palestinian officials. The Palestinians charged him with unfairly favoring Israel, and resented his decision to boycott veteran leader Yasser Arafat. Bush's win is "a victory for the American people who decided to choose democracy, hope and a relentless fight against...

    George Bush won a decisive victory, and the largest popular vote of any president in history. Despite the fact that he had significant leads in the remaining undeclared states like New Mexico and Iowa, for a long time the major media prognosticators wouldn’t declare a victory--which would have pushed his 269 electoral count into victory lane. They couldn’t come to accept the fact that John Kerry--with all of his money, the money of George Soros and other major contributors, the support of the major print and television media, the support of the Hollywood left, and every negative issue that could...

    Living under the specter of tens of thousands of lawyers challenging voting results all over the nation was not a comforting thought over these last few days. I was also glad to get through the mass media’s lopsided siding with Senator Kerry during the last week of the campaign. And, of course, it was good the nation survived the media’s final attempt to influence the campaign, namely its highlighting of these phony early exit polls that supposedly showed Kerry winning going away. It was gracious of Kerry to concede in the face of election odds that had been insurmountable for...

    On Saturday, June 5, 2004, President Ronald Reagan was called into eternity. The depth of America's emotional outpouring in tribute to him was testimony to his character, and to the esteem in which his countrymen held him. Sadness naturally accompanies the passing of a loved one, but the time for weeping passes. We will always miss the Gipper, but we needn't look far to see the impact he left on this country. Reagan may have taken leave of this life, but he has left us his legacy. That legacy was one of bold achievement in domestic, foreign, and social policy....

    When the Massachusetts supreme court issued their ruling mandating that gay marriage be accepted and legalized they thought they were making another landmark civil rights ruling, in line with the pro-black, pro-feminist rulings of the last few decades. Little did they realize they had awakened a sleeping giant. It was the gay marriage issue that finally got Christians off of their big fat pews and got them out to vote for Republicans. The revolution has started. Thank you Massachusetts supreme court!

    CAIRO (AFP) - The prospect of George W. Bush spending four more years in the White House drew mixed reactions and a dose of caution in the troubled Middle East. While Israel and the US-backed leaders of Iraq (news - web sites) were confident a second term for Bush would signal more of the same policies, the Palestinian leadership, out of favour with Washington, was cautiously hopeful things might change for it. Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said in an interview with Italy's La Repubblica newspaper published before Kerry conceded the election that "whoever is the winner will be our...

Bush as U.S. president Wednesday, despite a recognition in some quarters that the administration's campaign for political reform in the Arab world will be intensified following his victory.Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak called on Bush to use his second term to stop acting unilaterally and work more closely with the EU to achieve peace in the Middle East. "We hope Mr. Bush's new administration, together with the EU, can bring influence to bear to arrive at a peaceful development in the region," he said. Palestinian President Yasser Arafat,...

    With electoral results showing a narrow but not decisive victory for President George W. Bush, Israeli commentators tended to hedge their bets on the significance of the election, especially as it relates to Israel. However, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer said Wednesday that that "unfinished business" remained between the two allies and that "certainly, a lot of work remains to be done" on committments made by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to President Bush. The Bush administration, while showing strong support for Sharon's policies, has on numerous occasions expressed concern at the pace of Israeli action on such issues as...

    UNITED NATIONS, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan Wednesday sent his congratulations to U.S. President George W. Bush on his re-election. "The secretary-general warmly congratulates President Bush on his re-election," Fred Eckhard, a spokesman for Annan, said just hours after Democrat John Kerry telephoned his own congratulations to Bush. Eckhard added Annan was committed to working with the United States on a host of issues and hopes to prolong their "solid, productive relationship." "There have been a few disagreements, at least one fundamental one over the invasion of Iraq," Eckhard said. "But the secretary-general ... looks forward to...

    US President George W. Bush's election victory stirred reactions ranging from relief to outrage in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and fears over what four more years of the war on terror could mean for the Muslim world. Both governments have been close supporters of the US-led drive to oust the Taliban and hunt down remnants al-Qaeda, and were expected to welcome the result. Yet many ordinary citizens had hoped for a more moderate president in John Kerry, and greeted the prospect of "A win for Bush will be bad for Muslims," said laundry shop manager Mohammed Ali Akhtar, 48, who was...

    Democratic challenger John Kerry has telephoned President George Bush to concede the election to the White House, according to campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. Kerry is expected to make a formal statement later in the morning. The Democrat had remained behind closed doors in his house in a Boston neighbourhood on Wednesday, as advisers wrestled whether to admit defeat in Ohio, a move that would have effectively handed Bush a second term in office. Bush's Republican campaign had already declared victory in the midwestern state, saying the president has a "statistically insurmountable" lead of 130,000 votes. "We are convinced that President...

    Rome - Italy's foreign ministry welcomed the likely re-election of US President George W Bush as the ballot count in the race for the White House went down to the wire on Wednesday, saying it would have a positive influence on flashpoint issues like Iraq and the Middle East. "It is certainly an important result for all Italians, as allies of the United States, and one that will have a positive influence on the outcome of Iraq as well as the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza," said foreign ministry under-secretary Alfredo Mantica.

    Washington - President George W Bush edged close to victory on Wednesday against Senator John Kerry in a roiling contest that came down to a heart-stopper in the heartland, a battle over Ohio. Nothing was settled or conceded in the first light of day, but Kerry faced a daunting task trying to deny Bush an electoral majority that was almost within reach. The Democrat's campaign planned a statement by midday on Wednesday (US time), advisers said. Two of them, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kerry's concession seemed simply a matter of time after one last look for uncounted ballots...

    President Bush scheduled a victory announcement in Washington today, with officials of his reelection campaign asserting that he has won at least 286 electoral votes -- 16 more than he needs -- and that they do not have to wait for John F. Kerry to concede. The White House has not yet announced what time Bush will appear. The campaign at first summoned reporters to appear at the Ronald Reagan Building between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. but then put off the event. A White House official said Bush's aides anticipate Kerry will concede today. But the official said that...
