May. 23, 2006 Tuesday Night President Bush's and Israel's PM Ehud Olmert met live and discussed the Iranian threats. [White House Transcript]
President Bush said "I told the Prime Minister what I've stated publicly before: Israel is a close friend and ally of the United States, and in the event of any attack on Israel, the United States will come to Israel's aid. The United States is strongly committed, and I'm strongly committed, to the security of Israel as a vibrant, Jewish state.
Meanwhile, Iran planned their timing around the summit for test-firing a missile.
The Jerusalem Post reports: Iran conducted a test launch Tuesday night of the Shihab-3 intermediate-range ballistic missile, which is capable of reaching Israel and US targets in the region, Israel Radio reported. The test came hours before Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met with US President George W Bush in Washington to discuss the Iranian threat.
Iran seems to be testing more than missiles along with very serious threats. The more time that they get to stall, the more of a threat they become. Pic Caption: Photo released on Monday April 3, 2006 shows a test firing of a Fajr-3 missile fired by Iran in the Persian Gulf on April 1. (AP)
