Ynet piece by Hagai Segal:
"George W. Bush issued his two-state vision only after Ariel Sharon voiced a similar vision. Until that point, the Americans believed (just like Israel's governments) that a Palestinian state would be a disaster. Secretly they still think so, because one Tehran is enough, yet they cannot be against it when Israel is in favor."
Another demonstration of the confidence many Israelis have in their influence in Washington. To date it has not been misplaced.
