Israel and the Bush administration can agree over the route of Israel’s security fence’s route, U.S. Sen. John McCain said. McCain (R-Ariz.), who was in Israel leading a six-member congressional delegation, said Sunday that “many in Congress feel the fence is an important contributor to preventing acts of terror,” the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported. He also said a political solution is “the best answer to Israeli insecurity” and that “no freedom-loving nation can tolerate a terrorist state on its border,” according to the Jerusalem Post. The congressional group also is slated to meet with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
