CNN report on 'West Bank illegal outpost' television pilot

This is a surprisingly unbiased CNN report about a television pilot centered on an 'illegal outpost' in the 'West Bank' (Judea and Samaria). Let's go to the videotape.

Many of the 'illegal outposts' were sanctioned by the Israeli government. They only became 'illegal' after the Bush administration decided that Israel should sit with its arms tied as if the 'Palestinians' were ready to make 'peace' with Israel tomorrow morning and Ariel Sharon agreed. Where is President Bush's June 2004 speech about 'changed realities' in Israel and the 'Palestinian territories' that will require 'border adjustments'? For that matter, where is Ariel Sharon's Czechoslovakia warning? Gone to the same dustbin of history as Bush's 2001 'you're either with us or with the terrorists' speech. These are all memories of a bygone day when the Bush administration and the Israeli government still had principles.

Earlier this week, Bush was the prime mover behind a Security Council resolution designed to tie any future Israeli government to the farcical 'Annapolis principles.' And on Friday, Bush and Condi Clueless will welcome one of the most inept leaders on the world stage for a 'final visit' to the Bush White House: Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen.

I'm almost looking forward to the Obama administration. At least I harbor no illusions that he's my 'friend.'

Thanks for blogging about the review on CNN.

Regarding your comments about the comments made by Bush and Ariel Sharon - I remember everyone talking about the "guarantees" that Sharon received from Bush. My answer to everyone at the time is that words are meaningless, but actions are irreversible. Unfortunately, most people disregard reality and live on their optimistic hopes alone - especially when it comes to Israel. Maybe we are coming to an end to that, but I'm not holding my breath.
