Reader comment on item: Bush Promotes a Palestinian "Right of Return"

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Jan 14, 2008 at 18:11

President Bush does not represent the majority of American thinking as far as I am concerned, and if he is promoting a "right of return" for Palestinians, then there is trouble on the horizon. It seems that the gremlins who whisper in his ear are giving him poor advice. He is certainly trying to make his mark on his last year in service as our president, but failing miserably.

There is a certain bug in the world that, upon death, frantically lays her egg case before she dies. With these sweeping statements about the Israeli-Palestinian stalemate, President Bush is doing quite the same thing, trying to leave his legacy before giving up office officially in January 2009. I'm sure he would love it on his record that he was the one to broker peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis, but it just isn't going to happen. No one yet has accomplished this nearly impossible feat.

There are still nations that wish to obliterate Israel and Israel knows this full well. When our government stops playing both sides, that's when things will fall nicely into place, but until then, Israel will have to be on its mettle more than ever to avoid being plowed over by the misinformed and naive interference by the Bush administration.
