Bush and Sharon Meet, Discuss Israeli Actions

President Bush meets with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon today. He will likely urge Sharon to refrain from provoking Arab countries with more incursions into Palestinian territories as the United States considers a possible war against Iraq. Israel insists that its actions in the West Bank and Gaza are anti-terrorist maneuvers and not an overt assault against the Palestinians. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports that the two leaders will also likely discuss what Israel should do if it falls under missile attack from Iraq. (3:51)
