President George W. Bush today told Palestine Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, "Welcome to Washington, D.C.," although the two were at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.
Bush made the error during the meeting with Abbas, whom he described as "a man of peace."
And what did Abbas reply?
I mentioned to the president that more than 70 percent of the Palestinian population -- they believe in the two-state solution: a state of Palestine and a state of Israel living in peace and security next to each other. That means that the Palestinian people desire peace, and there is no power on Earth that can prevent the Palestinian people from moving toward a peaceful solution and living and coexisting in peace.
Now, of course, we look forward to activate the various plans and the various resolutions and the road map in order to be in a position to reach with our neighbors the desired objectives.
We always, Mr. President -- we look forward to your support and your help and your aid, because we are in dire need for your help and support.
Mr. President, we will always be faithful and truthful to peace, and we will not disappoint you.
And how many errors in those remaerks?
