Consumer Reports

What Israel understands about Bush | Polling from around the world shows only one nation on earth with an overwhelming preference for President Bush over John Kerry. Surveys in Israel indicate public support for Bush by a ratio of about four-to-one.

Israelis see that the U.S. President views Islamic terrorism in the same way they do: As an implacable evil that must be destroyed, not as a "nuisance" that demands sensitivity, nuance or negotiation.

Kerry has not only won support from Arafat and Muslim radicals in America; he has closely associated himself with the foreign policy "experts" who, under Clinton, pushed Israel into the disastrous Oslo Accords — and who demand endless concessions from the Jewish State even as the Palestinians continue to support terrorist outrages.

This approach ought to alarm any voters who care about Israel — or America, for that matter.

Rewarding terror assaults anywhere —especially in the Middle East — will only make such attacks more likely on American soil. I'm Michael Medved.
