Excellent Reading

Gerald A. Honigman wrote a great piece a week or so ago about the war of words, spurred by his reading of an old Time article about "The Settlers--Meet The New Extremists" from 2004. He points out the folly of such a position, especially without questioning the true extremists who kill Jews at every opportunity.

He also voices a growing concern we're all starting to have -- is Bush reneging on his promises to Israel now that he doesn't have to worry about running again -- as he pushes for the obviously oh-so-needed 22nd Arab state, at the expense of the USA's one true ally, Israel. It's a great article and if you missed it, you should check it out.

"is Bush reneging on his promises to Israel now that he doesn't have to worry about running again"

I don't think he really made any promises in the first place. It seemed like word games to me when he talked of the 1949 armistice line. But, he also gave the impression that he would allow Israel to keep some of the cities also known by some as settlements.

I don't know what he is thinking right now. It seems they are setting up a terrorist state next to Israel unfortunately.

Thanks for the suggestion! ...


I'd like to "think" that what is reported in the media concerning U. S. policy and what is "on the surface" in regard to nation "establishment," viewed by civilians, is not "exactly" what is viable and true.

I think Bush is speaking from behind the safety of a Foggy Bottom script. Sadly, it seems like he is dangerouly close to tryng to pass a global test. I'm also mad at him right now for not doing anything about our virtually open southern border.

I'm still glad I voted for him, but some of his policies are nevertheless troubling to me.
