SHARM EL-SHEIK, Egypt - Arab leaders, meeting with President Bush as he plunged into the labyrinth of Mideast peace talks, pledged on Tuesday to fight terror and violence and called on Israel to "rebuild trust and restore normal Palestinian life."
This is comical. They will continue to fight terrorism? When did they start? As far as restoring Palestinian life, they need not look any further than that compound in Ramallah to accomplish that. It's not up to the Israelis. Israel will live out her responsibilities when her citizens are no longer threatened. A government's first responsibility is the security of its citizens.
The miserable Arab life that is prevalent throughout the Middle East is the responsibility of the terrorists with whom Bush is sharing a meeting room right now. Watching him shake their hands wrenches my stomach. These are the people who incite hatred towards all things non-Muslim in their mosques, on state-run television, and by firmly planting their boots on their citizens' necks. The problem in the Middle East is currently exchanging pleasantries and empty promises in Sharm el Sheik. I could care less that they "accept" the road map to hell, because when it fails, they will point their fingers at Israel. This story has been written before.
