Israeli President Chaim Herzog sent a telegram Monday to President Bush, on the occasion of U.S. Independence Day, expressing confidence that the peace process would move forward.

However slow the peace process may be now, “it will move forward inexorably because of our mutual national and moral values and commitment to peace,” Herzog wrote.

He expressed “heartiest greetings and best wishes” to the American people on behalf of the people of Israel.
