Reading the Bush Adiminstration on Israel and Palestinain Issues

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/11/reading-bush-adiminstration-on-israel.html

Two views of Bush administration policy going into Annapolis. From the Washington Post:
 
Rice said publicly this week that her goal is to wrap up a peace deal by the end of the Bush presidency. But people who have spoken to Bush in recent weeks say he has made it clear that he has no intention of trying to force a peace settlement on the parties. The president's fight against terrorism has given him a sense of kinship with Israel over its need for security, and he remains skeptical that, in the end, the Palestinians will make the compromises necessary for a peace deal.
 
That sounds about right. From Caroline Glick, news that the sky is falling:
 
The mood is dark in the IDF's General Staff ahead of next week's "peace" conference in Annapolis. As one senior officer directly involved in the negotiations with the Palestinians and the Americans said, "As bad as it might look from the outside, the truth is 10 times worse. This is a nightmare. The Americans have never been so hostile."
 
Really?? How does Glick know the mood in the IDF's General Staff? Is it true that Americans have never been so hostile? Would any Israeli say that? Americans were not as hostile during the Suez crisis of 1956? Not during the Ford administration reevaluation? Are you sure about that Caroline? How about when James F-- the Jews Baker was running things? Were the Americans more friendly then?
 
And from Washington Post again:
 
Within the Arab world, Bush has been seen as fervently pro-Israeli. In 2004, to facilitate Israel's departure from Gaza, Bush gave Sharon letters that conceded key points on settlements and Palestinian refugees to the Israelis, without corresponding concessions for the Palestinians.
And from Caroline Glick again:
 
 It [the draft declaration] also shows that the US firmly backs the Palestinians against Israel.
 
How could the draft declaration possible show that? Where is there any evidence of US comments on the draft?
 
Caroline Glick is fortunate. She found an employer who is willing to pay for a woman to be hysterical.
