Prime Minister Sharon believes that the "Bush Letter" with reference to Israel annexing some of the settlements on the West Bank is legally binding? I can remember that, nearly fifty years ago, President Eisenhower is supposed to have made a written promise that the United States would ensure that the Suez Canal would remain open to Israeli shipping. When Nasser once again closed the Suez Canal to Israeli cargo in 1967, President Lyndon Baines Johnson conveniently could not find any such letter or guarantee made by the United States. The so-called "Bush letter" is not in a form of a treaty; it has not been ratified by the United States Senate, and it is really not binding upon President Bush himself, if President Bush should be persuaded by his newly-found European allies to demand withdrawal by Israel of ALL territories in Judea and Samaria.
