"To me it's the single biggest threat to peace in the Middle East, the Iranian regime," because of its nuclear programme and its support of groups like the Lebanese Hezbollah militia, Bush told Israel's Channel 10.
"Their funding of Hezbollah -- look what's happening in Lebanon now, a young democracy trying to survive," Bush said in excerpts of an interview to be broadcast in its entirety on Tuesday.
Bush was due to meet Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Wednesday at the start of a five-day trip anchored on Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations and aimed at bolstering US-backed Middle East peace talks launched in November.
Bush declined to comment on a major corruption investigation recently launched against the beleaguered Israeli premier, saying only that he has "great relations with the prime minister."
"I find him to be a frank man and an honest man and an open man," Bush said.
Olmert is suspected of having received funds illegally from a US businessman before he became premier in 2006.

Iran is certainly the biggest threat to American Israeli and British forces in the ME. It supplies its proxies in Iraq, Hesbollah and Hamas to attack our forces on an hourly basis. Can you not see it? Would you have been one of those peaceniks who would have given in to the commies or given the world outside America to the Nazis? Ever heard of the phrase 'spanner in the works?'
