The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT&ANALYSIS -

The Town Crier blog is not too im­pressed with plans for Ge­orge W Bush’s next trip to Is­rael “Some best friend. First this clown makes a huge deal about his last trip to the Holy Land, yet he slapped the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment in the face by snub­bing the req­ui­site for­mal in­vi­ta­tion by Is­rael for the Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent to ad­dress the Knes­set. The White House rea­soned that he could not speak in the Is­raeli house be­cause he would be un­able to give a re­cip­ro­cal ad­dress to the Pales­tinian leg­isla­tive coun­cil... be­cause there would be Ha­mas law­mak­ers present [the very same Ha­mas law­mak­ers whose elec­tion Bush him­self pushed for]. Pres­i­dent Bush is plan­ning an­other visit very soon to par­tic­i­pate in the Jewish state’s 60th in­de­pen­dence an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions. Bun­ny­pants will in­deed give a speech to the Knes­set this time; how­ever, he will is­sue an en­tirely new snub. Mr Re­li­gious will de­fer the visit­ing the world’s most pop­u­lar holy site, be­cause it is sup­pos­edly ‘too con­tro­ver­sial’. More­over, Bush will in­stead opt to visit an­other pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tion, Masada, a place where 100 Jews com­mit­ted sui­cide. How ap­pro­pri­ate for the worst best friend Is­rael ever had.” atown­
