    If Isreal's security was really a concern, the US would put her Embassy in Jerusalem thus demonstrating that support as Bush promised in 2000 and as Congress has passed laws directing the US to do so. It would have announced in the summer of 2006 that hezbollah is an enemy to the stability of the ME and that the US backs Israel's war without limiting it to smash the jihadist organization. It would enforce the US laws already on the books on Arab nations boycotting Israel. The list goes on and on but with a more-than-ever-pro-Arab State Department and Bush needing an Arab-win and with Olmert the 'how much land do you want Mr. Abbas' in charge - look out Israel. Iraq? Meaningless at this point.
