Egyptian State Press Calls Bush An Appeaser For His Comments in Israel

Egypt's state-owned press opened fire Saturday on U.S. President George W. Bush as he arrived for talks with regional leaders at the conclusion of a five-day Mideast tour.

The newspapers, whose management are all appointed by the government, criticized Mr. Bush's speech Thursday in front of the Israeli Knesset for being overly supportive of the Israelis and not mentioning the Palestinians' plight.

"The Torah-inspired speech of Bush raised question marks over the credibility of the U.S. role in the Middle East," wrote Mursi Atallah, the publisher of Al-Ahram, the flagship daily of the state-owned press. "Bush aims to do nothing but appeasing Israel."

All because the president, who has the lowest rating of ANY President since ratings have been taken, decided to come out for John McCain in a political way while he was visiting Israel, purportedly on a peace mission. Nobody is fooled by this, but it's part of WHY Bush is so deeply unpopular. We want a president who is for EVERYONE, even if we don't agree with his policies, but doesn't so often seek to divide people.. and especially not before an international crowd.

Edward Luce writes in the Financial Times: "Although Mr Bush did not mention Mr Obama by name, many suspect the president's remarks to Israel's parliament offered a foretaste of White House plans to assist John McCain in his goal of painting the likely Democratic nominee as unfit to be commander-in-chief. . . .

P.S. The article points out that Egypt has traditionally been an ally of the US. One thinks that Bush has taken this partisanship too far for Middle Eastern tastes.
