George Bush is considered to be the most pro-Israel president in American history.
So it was all the more remarkable when he stood up in Jerusalem and said the following:
“There should be an end to the occupation that began in 1967. The establishment of a Palestinian state is long overdue. The Palestinian people deserve it.” And he added: “There is a need for mutually agreed adjustments of the pre-1967 borders to reflect current realities and to ensure that the Palestinian state is viable and contiguous.” (Does that mean taking down the fence?)
The timing and blunt language of Mr. Bush’ comments surprised many observers.
Do you agree Israel should get out of the occupied territories and return them to the Palestinians?
