Bush Uses Israel As An Example for Iraq

According to BBC News, Bush said that Israel should serve as a model for Iraq.

Here is a key paragraph:

"In places like Israel, terrorists have taken innocent human life for years in suicide attacks. The difference is that Israel is a functioning democracy and it's not prevented from carrying out its responsibilities. And that's a good indicator of success that we're looking for in Iraq."

Bush could have also said that Israel has also achieved a first-world standard of living even though it has no oil. He could also have suggested that the Palestinians could also have achieved a democracy and a high standard of living if they had tried instead of focusing exclusively on killing Jews.
