President George W. Bush, Dec. 2008, to NR:

You can get short-term popularity if you want to in the Middle East by blaming all problems on Israel. That’ll make you popular. …It would have made me wrong, however. And ultimately, you earn people’s respect by articulating a set of principles and standing by them. You know, popularity comes and goes…but principles are enduring.
