Bush in KnessetThis last Thursday, President George Bush gave an historical speech in front of the Israeli parliament. Bush has paid a three-day visit to Israel in honor of Israel’s 60’s anniversary.

In a pro-Israeli speech, Bush has expressed his nation’s support of Israel. Bush said how proud America is to have such a close friend as Israel. President Bush opened his speech in Hebrew: Yom Ha’atzmaut Samech [happy Independence Day]. Bush’s Hebrew is far more impressive than his English, that’s for sure!

“I’m honored to be here… America is proud to be Israel’s closest ally and best friend in the world; our alliance is unbreakable,”

“You have worked tirelessly for peace and freedom. When Americans look at Israel we see a pioneering spirit, talent and determination of a free people refusing to let any obstacle stand in the way of their destiny,” said Bush.

Did Bush say something that we have not heard before? I doubt it…In response to some of Bush’s compassionate statements, all Knesset members and visitors rose to their feet in applause. Indeed, it has been one of the greatest kiss ups that our nation has seen in the last sixty years.
