Faith, Trust and War Place Bush Firmly on Israel's Side (ROBERT S. GREENBERGER and JEANNE CUMMINGS, April 3, 2002, Wall Street Journal)
Mr. Bush is bound to Israel by a strong religious faith molded by his convictions as a born-again Christian. In his autobiography, he describes a 1998 visit there as "an incredible experience." And times have changed markedly since the first President Bush's term, when many moderate Arab governments were expressing an eagerness for peace.

This is the kind of story we were talking about earlier in the week. Journalists who ignore or dismiss the President's religious beliefs are in real danger of missing the story. Posted by Orrin Judd at April 3, 2002 4:20 PM
