CAL THOMAS ON BUSH AND PALESTINE:

President Bush knows the game. He understands that the Palestinians could have had their state at any time over the last 54 years if they had renounced violence and their objective of eradicating Israel. Former Israeli communications and policy official Michael Freund noted in last Wednesday’s (June 12) Jerusalem Post that Prime Minister Levi Eshkol proposed opening direct negotiations with the Arab states in 1965 in order to turn the 1949 armistice agreements into full-fledged peace treaties.
