our question: if the jews are gods chosen people and god has vowed to protect israel what do they need us (the usa) protecting them for? it seems to us that pResident bush is actually admitting that he doesnt really believe in gods holy word and that god is either a liar or incapable of protecting isreal or both. looks like the jews dont believe in god or his word either.
In a Reuters interview aboard Air Force One en route to Nashville, Bush also said he saw a "very good chance" the governing board of the International Atomic Energy Agency would refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions.
"I am concerned about a person that, one, tries to rewrite the history of the Holocaust, and two, has made it clear that his intentions are to destroy Israel," Bush said.
"Israel is a solid ally of the United States, we will rise to Israel's defense if need be. So this kind of menacing talk is disturbing. It's not only disturbing to the United States, it's disturbing for other countries in the world as well," he added.
Asked if he meant the United States would rise to Israel's defense militarily, Bush said: "You bet, we'll defend Israel."
Ahmadinejad has prompted international condemnation for anti-Israel rhetoric in recent weeks, including saying it should be wiped off the map, and also calling into question the Holocaust.
IRAN NUCLEAR PROGRAM
Iran is engaged in a stand-off over its nuclear program. Tehran insists its program is aimed at developing nuclear power and the United States and other international powers charge it is seeking to develop nuclear weapons.
Asked if he thought the IAEA will refer Iran to the Security Council, Bush said: "The IAEA must take a look at the facts, and listen carefully to the arguments, and there's a very good chance it will."
Bush said not only should Iran not be allowed to enrich uranium, it should not even be able to learn how to enrich uranium because it could then learn how to make a weapon.
But he said it was acceptable with him for Tehran to have civilian nuclear power under the condition that the spent fuel be taken away to another country, a proposal Russia has made and which Bush supports. Continued ... EXTERNAL LINK
