News Brief

President Bush told U.S. rabbis that a “simple formula” exists for judging the new Palestinian leadership. Speaking to 15 rabbis in the White House on Monday, Bush said that the United States would deal with new Palestinian leaders if they dismantle terrorist groups and fight terrorism. Until then, he said, “everything’s on hold,” according to Rabbi Steven Pruzanski of Teaneck, N.J., and others who attended the meeting.
