A free Iraq will prove to Palestinians that coexistence with Israel is possible, President Bush said. Speaking Thursday at a California fund-raiser, Bush outlined how he believes a free Iraq will inspire others in the region toward democracy. “When Iraq is free, it will say to the Palestinians, who have been subjected to leadership that has not led in their interest, that it’s possible to live at peace with our close friend, Israel,” Bush said, “Freedom will change the habits of people so that peace prevails in this world.”
