Bush is right But....

Reader comment on item: In the MidEast, Bush Dared to Be Different

Submitted by Shahin Shadmer (United States), Oct 25, 2004 at 13:46

I agree with you about what Bush is doing in the Middle East and what John Kerry wants to do. Kerry supporters should know that he wants to appease the mullahs in Iran as suggested by former national security adviosr to Carter. Israel should not let others push for another arab state in that area. A "Palestinian State" is already present -- it is called Jordan. Arabs have shown for the past 70 years that they do not and can not handle democratic institutions and ways of living. Bush is trying and I applaud him for that, but there should be doubt. The only countries that can be friends and can handle democracy are Israel, Turkey, and Iranians- after the mullahs are toppled. Unfortunately, the Arabs respect dictators and heavy handedness.
