Is Bush stupid or venal? It's difficult to say, but it doesn't matter. The consequences of either quality have produced nothing but destruction and instability in the mideast. No doubt Bush has in mind some rump Palestinian state that will not satisfy the vast, vast majority of Palestinians--Ramallah, Nablus, and their suburbs and villages. Bush is "optimistic" only about the sort of state acceptable to the Israelis, not a state acceptable to the Palestinians. Hence, no peace.
