Bush and Israel
A report in Middle East Newsline states that the Bush Administration has prepared a list of sanctions against Israel if it does not comply with the roadmap, including a review of sales of arms to Israel. Middle East Newsline is headed by Steve Rodan, formerly of The Jerusalem Post.
The list was presumably prepared by State Department staffers, and it's hard to believe that it would be supported by the Pentagon. Still, this report requires those who naively believe the Bush Administration to be pro-Israel to re-assess their views. In fact, while the administration has indeed been somewhat supportive of Israel's actions against terror, it has continued to lean in favor of the Palestinians with regard to the political process.
