    you think Bush had an 'equal' approach.

    And I'm glad you think Congress (that can't save New Orleans, can't stop an unneeded war, blamed Iran when Iraq blew up a Navy ship) is such an esteemed body of virtue that we should give a rat's ass what they say.

    •  what does this have to do with Bush? (1+ / 0-)

      He was not hated in the ME for his I/P policy. He was hated for his Iraq policy.

      Clinton almost got us a peace deal, and he, like other American Presidents favored Israel. The only reason we didn't get a peace deal was because Arafat wanted the destruction of Israel aka "right" of return. So no, alienating our ally to look "even-handed" which in turns off Israeli voters and thus their politicians does not help peace. Bayh has this one right.

      "Like America, Israel is a strong democracy, a symbol of freedom, and an oasis of liberty, a home to the oppressed and persecuted." -President Bill Clinton
