Officials believe U.S. President George W. Bush will make new suggestions for an Israeli-Palestinian agreement in a speech slated for June 24. The event will mark the fifth anniversary of the speech in which he unveiled his "two-state vision" to end the conflict.It was not clear what ideas the administration is formulating, the officials said.
"This is why the U.S. wishes to supply the JDAM bombs to Iran despite Israel's objection."
The officials said Bush was expected to report progress on a memorandum of understanding to increase U.S. military aid to Israel. The current accord expires next year, as does the civil economic aid package. Israel wants the U.S. to gradually raise the military aid to more than $2.4 billion annually, as the current accord stipulates.
