The April 14 Bush letter to Sharon was indeed a statement of policy, as statements of previous administrations were on this issue. Congress "strongly" endorsed the principles of this letter in a resolution of 23 June 2004. Israelis and Palestinians both interpreted it as a "second Balfour Declaration," as was noted by David Hirst in the Guardian on 16 April 2004 (he views that as a negative) and a major change in policy by Electronic Intifada in an article titled "The Bush Sharon Letters" (again a negative evaluation) but for all concerned a major aspect of American policy and you fail to MENTION it in your earlier posts on US policy on these issues. Get real and drop your one-sided rot.
