Quotes from Edwards on I/P
I got these off the Arab American Institute web site.

My criticism of the president on the Middle East peace process has been a lack of engagement. Edwards said the road map the Bush administration drafted to create a Palestinian state alongside Israel by '05 is a good thing, but isn't sufficient without sustained U.S. involvement. Edwards: I think the test for him now is: Will he follow through? It's not enough to show up for one meeting and over a short period of time stay engaged on this issue." Edwards said the U.S. "should continue working with Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, despite Abbas' failure to curb violence in the region. (Hotline, June 16, 2003)


Presidents of both parties have tolerated and even supported authoritarian regimes in the Middle East, in part because the United States depends on them for oil. A real commitment to energy independencewhich the Bush administration clearly lackswould not only strengthen the U.S. economy but free the United States to promote American values. The United States must also do far more to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians. (Essay, ForeignPolicy.com, April 2003)


We haven't done enough to work on the peace process in Israel; we didn't sustain the progress that had been made there. (Salon.com, January 14, 2003)

Do you happen to know if he's given a full foreign policy speech or ME speech? I've never been able to find one. Uhm, since he's your guy, you might want to do a search at cfr.org. I think it would be really helpful to see what he has to say. I haven't found anything in depth on his web site the way I have on domestic policy.
