Bush Speaks to the Israeli Knesset

From the CNN article:

JERUSALEM (CNN) – In a particularly sharp blast from halfway
around the world, President Bush suggested Thursday that Sen.
Barack Obama and other Democrats are in favor of "appeasement"
of terrorists in the same way U.S. leaders appeased Nazis in the
run-up to World War II.

"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and
radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they
have been wrong all along," said Bush, in what White House aides
privately acknowledged was a reference to calls by Obama and
other Democrats for the U.S. president to sit down for talks with
leaders like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"We have heard this foolish delusion before," Bush said in remarks
to the Israeli Knesset. "As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an
American Senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler,
all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this
what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been
repeatedly discredited by history."
