Deeply troubled.
Israeli helicopters fired missiles at a car carrying a senior Hamas leader Tuesday, wounding him, killing two others and jeopardizing the U.S.-backed road map to Mideast peace. President Bush criticized Israel, saying he was "deeply troubled" by the strike.
The Bushies might have bitten off more than they can chew on this one.

The Israelis don't want to negotiate and the Palestinians want to, but can't keep their populace from blowing things up, thus making any negotiations fruitless.
