Because what happened here is possible everywhere


Bush, in Israel: “But I suspect if you looked back 60 years ago and tried to guess where Israel would be at that time, it would be hard to be able to project such a prosperous, hopeful land. No question people would have said, well, we’d be surrounded by hostile forces -- but I doubt people would have been able to see the modern Israel, which is one reason I bring so much optimism to the Middle East, because what happened here is possible everywhere.”


This is how good Bush’s grasp of the Middle East is: he does not understand how scary a thought “what happened here is possible everywhere” actually is.
