Why Does the Bush Administration Push So Hard on Israel to Make Concesssions?

One of the great disappointments (among many others) of the Bush Administration is its seeming willingness to make virtually endless demands on Israel to cede land for peace.

First, they are to give up Gaza.
Next, they are to give up the Shebaa Farms area to Lebanon
Finally, they are to cede Samaria and part of Jerusalem

It is reported that Condi Rice's negotiating position is that Israel should give up ALL territories conquered since 1949. (Keep in mind that these territories were won in bloody conflicts with Israel's Arab neighbors.)

And the silence from the (allegedly very pro-Israel) Christian Right is DEAFENING! (Jim Dobson and Jerry Falwell, call your office!)

The absurdity of it all is this: The State Department idiots believe that Israel -- by ceding land to her rapacious enemies -- will somehow "buy" peace.

Well, that thinking is ludicrous on too many counts to be covered adequately here. However the two most salient are:

-Israel's neighbors openly say that Israel has no right to exist and that their goal is her total annihilation, and
-Israel's total land area TODAY is smaller than . . . . either that of San Diego County or San Bernardino County in California.

Here are some links you should read: Bang. Bang. Bang. Bang. Bang.
