Fools like each others company and bush loves israel. this will not change. bush thinks change is sinful. for him and for israel there are only eternal imperatives. to change is a sign of weakness. for bush it is the moral imperative, the need to force "democracy" down the throat of everyone, like the 50's american mom who says to her frowning child: "Oh, you'll eat it! You'll eat and like it"! For Israel it is the demogrpahic imperative which must be maintained at all costs, unflinchingly. And that is precisely why Israel will never say yes to Europe for whom they have only contempt and scorn.
