Some had counseled putting off the elections. The President disagreed. He explained his decision in a speech to the American Legion a month after the Palestinian vote: “It should come as no surprise that after 60 years of Western nations excusing and accommodating the lack of freedom in the Middle East, civil society in that region is not strong and those with the most extreme views are the most organized. It will take time for the people of this region to build political parties and movements that are moderate in their views and capable of competing in a free democratic system.
However, President Bush leaves an improved situation, and one that represents an opportunity for the new Administration. Despite the control of Gaza by Hamas terrorists – and rocket and mortar attacks against Israel in December 2008 that forced Israel to launch retaliatory action against Hamas – the Israeli security situation has been improved over the past eight years. These security improvements have given Israelis the confidence they need to negotiate. The Palestinian people have new leaders in the Palestinian Authority who reject terror and seek peace with Israel.
Since 2001, the Administration signed Millennium Challenge Compacts with Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador, and Threshold Agreements with Guyana, Paraguay, and Peru, and determined Colombia to be eligible for a Compact. These agreements have committed nearly $930 million in new aid to support democracy, good governance, and development. This new aid comes on top of the standard bilateral assistance that the United States provided. When the President came into office, the United States was sending approximately $860 million a year in foreign aid to Latin America and the Caribbean.
