Bush Visits Middle East

I have delayed comment on President Bush's only visit to Israel and Palestine during his two terms of office to be able to take a longer view.

Assessments of the visit are guarded at best.

At the beginning of the tour the Economist laid out the puzzle and the challenge in Israel and Palestine. At the end of the week long circuit, the same source summed up the prospects of success and the sub-text of the tour when it comes to arms supplies and who is providing what to whom.
