In an extraordinary challenge to Israel and its American supporters, President Bush on Friday urged Congress to "give peace a chance" by putting aside until the end of the year an Israeli request for $10 billion in housing loan guarantees. The blunt demand for delay rebuffed Israel's plea for more rapid action and set off immediate explosions in Jerusalem and on Capitol Hill.
