THE UNITED STATES: Two approaches to the Middle East

Sharon in Washington is evading the conditions laid down by the Bush administration. n General Robert Gard is pessimistic: "Members of Congress are competing to demonstrate to their constituents their politically correct speeches defending the Israeli war crimes in the Palestinian and occupied territories. I've heard no mention of the occupation and colonization of territories conquered in war, contrary to the laws of war and UN resolutions voted for by the US with the agreement of Israel. We can count on more terrorism from recruits from Arab countries as a result of the current Israeli offensive, which we are perceived to support".
