Bush Considering November Tour of Middle East

(IsraelNN.com) U.S. President George W. Bush is considering a tour of the Middle East, according to a report by the Haaretz news service. If the president decides to visit, senior sources in Washington said it would be after mid-term elections in November.
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced last Thursday that she is planning a trip to the region but would not be more specific, other than to say that her trip would be a continuation of the shuttle diplomacy she has been carrying out for much of this year. "The President has instructed me to work with the moderate leaders in the region and help the parties solve their differences," she said.
The announcements come in the wake of concerns expressed by moderate Arab nations over the growing internal unrest in their countries, fueled in part by the rising popularity of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Bush has said he wants to push the Israeli-Palestinian peace process forward and that he is “serious” about supporting a diplomatic initiative to that end.
