Bush: 'Israel Has Right to Defend Itself'
President Bush and Germany's Chancellor, Angela Merkel, called Thursday, for an end to the rising tide of Mideast violence, the release of captured Israeli soldiers and a halt in rocket attacks against Israel.
Mr. Bush denounced Hezbollah guerrillas who triggered the latest round of clashes in Lebanon as "terrorists who want to stop the advance of peace," and he emphasized that Israel has the right to defend itself.
