I'm just curious if Bush will ever make a surprise visit to Israel--after all, like Iraq and Afghanistan, Israel's situation today is very much a result of US
Apparently Bush has visited Israel twice before:
o In 1998, after becoming Governor of Texas, he toured Israel with Sharon.
o President Bush visited the Middle East from June 2-4 2003 for two summits in an attempt to push the road map as part of a seven-day overseas trip through Europe and Russia.
That's all well and good, but the second visit was pure business and the first one was before he was president.
Considering the enormous growth in tension since the election of Hamas, it would be nice--and appropriate, given that so much of the tension is the product of US advice--if Bush would pay a visit.
That in itself would be a surprise.
