2008-05-15 Bush speech at Knesset
US president George W. Bush addressed the Israeli legislature, known as the Knesset. Certain of his remarks were seen by Democrats as an attack on the idea of withdrawing from Iraq and on presidential candidate Barack Obama, whose campaign platform includes a timetable for complete withdrawal, in particular. Bush supporters have argued that Bush mentioned neither Obama nor Democrats, but this is disingenuous; Bush has clearly established that he equates dissent with treason, and those who support him see the democrats and all those who would withdraw from Iraq as "traitors" who "want us to lose".
