George W. Bush Plaza Monument
W. Bush Plaza Marker
Corner stone of a raised planter in the small plaza, one side in Hebrew; Set up in May 2008 after a state visit by George W. Bush, the monument and plaza is called "W. Bush Plaza" by "the New Jerusalem Foundation" (a private group; the small plaza is not government sponsored). In contrast, at the same time, a key public square in Jerusalem was renamed in honor of imprisoned American Jew and Israeli citizen Jonathan Pollard, just in time for the arrival of then U.S. President George W. Bush. The Jerusalem City Council chose Monday, Jan. 7, 2008, as the date for a ceremony renaming Paris Square (Kikar Paris), a public square situated midway between the American Consulate and the prime minister's residence, in honor of Jonathan Pollard.
