Zionist group angry over Bush omission

Friday, December 02, 2005 | 
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has expressed deep concern that President Bush, at a major speech in Annapolis, omitted Israel when referring to a long list of countries hit by Islamic terrorism. "The terrorists in Iraq share the same ideology as the terrorists who struck the United States on September the 11th,” Bush said at the Naval Academy in Maryland. “Those terrorists share the same ideology with those who blew up commuters in London and Madrid, murdered tourists in Bali, workers in Riyadh, and guests at a wedding in Amman, Jordan.” ZOA President Morton Klein said Israel was “conspicuously absent." Israel has…suffered far more from this Islamist horror than any other country in the world,” Klein said. “It's also remarkable that President Bush…mentioned Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that the Saudi regime is the world's biggest supporter of Islamist terrorism, raising funds for suicide bombers.”
