Most commentators on President Bush's speech of June 24, 2002
on his apparent desire to get rid of Arafat and to redesign the entire
Palestinian Authority structure in a way directly beneficial to
future. They missed WHY Bush wants to carry out these reforms. It's the
which is the key to understanding the speech.
The real target of Bush's speech is the Islamic resistance which
subjugation of Palestine impossible. He made it very clear who are the
terrorists in his view. Said Bush:
"Every nation actually committed to peace will stop the flow of money,
equipment and recruits to terrorist groups seeking the destruction of
including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah." (Page 3 of Bush speech
transcript issued by IAP.)
When Bush says "terror" or "terrorist", he is echoing Sharon and
Netanyahoo. These words are thinly veiled code for Islamic resistance.
Palestinian writer Mazin Qumsiyeh noted, the Bush speech mentioned
or "terrorism" against Israel 18 times but Israeli terrorism against
Palestinian Muslims and Christians ZERO times. Qumsiyeh also noted that

The Bush speech focuses on the purposes of the

explicit. In his words, the Palestinian Authority, as re-constituted,

3. The new puppets will carry out Bush's orders. Otherwise he will not
support a "Palestinian state." And what are those orders? "... The
States will not support the establishment of a Palestinian state until
leaders engage in a sustained fight against terrorists and dismantle
infrastructure." Thus Bush's version of a Palestinian state is that of
police force under the CIA's orders hired to liquidate all Islamic
and Christians who do not recognize Israel.
4. Mr. Bush recognizes that no Muslim nation will voluntarily destroy
soul, that is the Islamic resistance. He realizes that massive funding
be required to hire mercenaries and collaborators and to build
where their families can live comfortably after the Muslims have been
slaughtered. (This is again the Egyptian model where Hosni Mubarak and
family have become among the richest people in the middle east while
Egyptians live in abject poverty.) Mr. Bush promises his future
he and his agencies will provide the required funding. He specifically
mentions the World Bank and IMF. (P.2)
5. What role does Bush envisage for the rest of the Arab world, Africa
the Muslim world in general?
5a. "Every leader" must denounce "homicide bombings." Thus the people's
resistance against Jewish occupation forces has to be declared criminal
