Bush in Israel

CREDIT:

Peter Wehner at Commentary gets upset that George W. Bush referred to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories as an “occupation.” What’s his ilk going to say about Bush’s disparagement of efforts to turn Palestine into a “Swiss cheese” of isolated cantons?

Meanwhile, good for Bush. His track record on this topic has been so terrible that it’s hard to take his current initiative seriously, but so far as one can tell he’s now moving things in the right direction and I may have been too harsh in this morning’s post. What he’s doing right now is creating positive momentum and could very well lead to a situation where the next president is set up to really accomplish something big.
