Speaking in Washington on completion of talks with Jordans King Abdullah, president George W Bush has called for the Islamic Hezbollah organization to lay down it's arms to prove that it is not a terrorist group. Both parties are concerned that the Hezbollah arganization will try to damage the peace process between the Palestinians and Isrealis.
He says the group has to stop threatening peace in the Middle East.

"We view Hezbollah as a terrorist organisation," he said.

"I would hope that Hezbollah would prove that they're not by laying down arms and not theatening peace.

"One of our concerns, the Majesty and I discussed, is that Hezbollah may try to derail the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians."

The white house is denying that this is a shift in American policy. It is yet unknown of what the Hezbollah's response is to the latest move by the white house in the effort for peace in the region. The move is also very interesting in light of other news that the white house is undergoing an image makeover.
