Burning Bush

I know this is a bit dated now, but I’m still pre-occupied with Bush’s statements toward Israel. I am a Bush supporter, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why he would chastise Israel for retaliating after they are attacked. If Israel just takes it and does nothing, they will send the wrong message to the Palestinians.

I know both sides have committed their share of horrors, but I put the responsibility on the shoulders of the Palestinians. All it takes is half a brain to realize that no Arab country will be happy until every Jew is dead. There isn’t an effective peace plan available. You cannot stop thousands of years of war between the Jews and Arabs with a nice little peace plan.

Bush or his advisors really made a mistake here. This kind of position will not win his conservative constituency.
