He was a US President. He stood there in front of the White House while Rabin reluctantly shook hands with arafat. He did it because arafat said he recognized Israel even if we understood later he didn't mean it but he said it anyway. Ok, so Hamas is more honest that camel face but that doesn't obligate anyone interested in a real peace to drop the essential requirement that recognition of Israel's right to exist is the foundation of anything going forward. Without it there is no reason to proceed. Hamas is sworn to a koranic oath to destory Israel. Almost everyone understands that negates any deal, discussions or any continuation of finanical aid. Everyone but this former US President. Simply embarrassing.
