United States President George Bush was informed on Tuesday of an initiative to establish a center under his name in Israel, as a sign of gratitude for his support for the country and its security.
Outgoing Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Daniel Ayalon asked Bush for the go-ahead to establish such a center during a farewell meeting with the president and his deputy, Dick Cheney.
Bush told Ayalon that “freedom” would be a worthy subject for the center to focus on.
Ayalon has yet to approach donors with a request to finance the establishment of the “Bush Center” in Israel, but does not expect to encounter difficulties when it comes to raising the funds.
Though, Israel is currently ruled by a man who thinks the Iraq war has brought “stability” to the Middle East.
