On the first day of her Middle East tour, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Tuesday signed a joint statement with Egypt, Jordan and six Persian Gulf states, endorsing the 2002 Arab peace initiative as one of the foundations for Middle East peace.
Visiting the region with Rice is Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
The initiative offers Israel normalized relations with all Arab countries in return for full withdrawal from the territory Israel captured in 1967.
So this is the plan. To give these people exactly what they want, to appease them. APPEASEMENT don't work. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.
What does Israel think of this. It is by the way their land, not ours. Hell why don't we give Texas back to Mexico, then maybe they will quit breaking the law entering our country. No, then Texas would be as messed up at the rest of Mexico, and they would be coming in just as fast. Not to mention the people from Texas would be raising hell at the mention of this idea. Why is Israel not doing this?

So much for the “Bush doctrine.” You’re either with us ... or we’ll reward you, with everything you’ve been killing for.
And lots of weapons too.
