Bush and the Palestinian state

Typical Charles. He's calling the EU appeasers for promising to help build a Palestinian state by injecting a quarter of billion Euros. Maybe he's forgotten this statement by his favourite Texan.

"The goal of two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace is within reach, and America will help them achieve that goal."
President George W. Bush, State of the Union Address, February 2, 2005.
And how about the US governments commitment to aiding the Palestinians financially to the tune of 350 million dollars.

In his State of the Union address, President Bush announced that he would ask Congress to approve $350 million "to support Palestinian political, economic and security reforms." This week, Congress will begin consideration of a proposal to send $200 million of this sum to the Palestinians in the form of emergency aid, while the remaining $150 million will be proposed in the President's 2006 fiscal budget.
