Remember when George Bush had a sense of morality supporting his foreign policy? When he rewarded those who fought terrorism and punished those who supported that evil? Those days are gone. Now he talks about occupied territory and Dividing Jerusalem. This is a different George Bush. He has regressed back to the guy he was BEFORE 9/11. He’s the NEW pre 9/11 George Bush, the guy that Ariel Sharon warned:
Do not repeat the dreadful mistake of 1938, when enlightened democracies of Europe decided to sacrifice Czechoslovakia for the sake of a temporary, convenient solution. Don’t try to appease the Arabs at our expense. We will not accept this. Israel will not be Czechoslovakia. Israel will fight terror. There’s no difference between ‘good terror’ and ‘bad terror’ just as there is no difference between ‘good murder’ and ‘bad murder.’
After 9/11 when so many Americans were tragically lost Bush had a change of heart. He came to understand what terrorism was about. His relationship with Israel’s leaders became much closer. Bush began to understand that Israel is on the front lines in the war on terror. But now all that has changed, he has gone back to being a Dhimmi,
Four years ago President Bush sent then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon a letter which said in Part:
take our poll - story continues below
“The United States reiterates its steadfast commitment to Israel’s security, including secure, defensible borders, and to preserve and strengthen Israel’s capability to deter and defend itself, by itself, against any threat or possible combination of threats….As part of a final peace settlement, Israel must have secure and recognized borders, which should emerge from negotiations between the parties in accordance with UNSC Resolutions 242 and 338. In light of new realities on the ground, including already existing major Israeli populations centers, it is unrealistic to expect that the outcome of final status negotiations will be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949, and all previous efforts to negotiate a two-state solution have reached the same conclusion. It is realistic to expect that any final status agreement will only be achieved on the basis of mutually agreed changes that reflect these realities.
After the 2006 mid term elections, Bush became for all intents and purposes a lame-duck President. Instead of continuing the fight for what is right, he ‘gave in to a Secretary of State who sees the Palestinian terrorists as heroes and the terrorist leader as Martin Luther King.
Before that time we might have described his legacy as waging a successful war on terror, But that was the Post 9/11 George Bush, the one who understood the plight of countries fighting terror. But this is the NEW PRE 9/11 George Bush. The NEW BUSH who rewards terror by putting the “Palestinian Right of Return,” Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria back on the table. The NEW PRE 9/11 George Bush the Great Presidential Middle East Flip Flopper who seeks to turn Israel into Czechoslovakia.
Possibly the worst part of his two day Anti-Israel propaganda trip is that it is going to fuel terrorism and cause more suffering both for the Palestinians and the Israelis.
