Bush, who steps down in January, made little reference to the peace negotiations or to the Palestinians at all while in Israel.
Many Palestinians were dismayed by a speech to Israel's parliament in which he spoke of a shared divine providence uniting American Christians like himself with Israel's Jews.
Bush called Israel a homeland for God's "chosen people" and pledged Washington would remain its "best friend in the world".
Divine Providence?? Exactly wtf is that all about?
Some time ago in chat a new guy came into the room. His first words were "Shalom!”. Strange, I think, considering this is a "Christian Debate" room, frequented largely by atheists, pagans, and Christians.
Crazy Fundie bastards.
