I would like an explanation of your recently stated policy declaring
an intention of creating a Palestinian Arab State consisting
of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. The further declaration made by Secretary
Rice, and repeated by you in Belgium that the state to be created
must be contiguous, is to say the least irrational.
Are you and the Secretary of State declaring that it is the intention
of your policy to create a discontinuous Israel so as to make a
contiguous Palestine? It would seem so by your utterance in Belgium,
to wit, "A state of scattered territories will not work."
I have supported you and later your administration from the beginning
of your campaign for the office of the President to this point in
time. It is no longer possible to believe that you are a friend
of the State of Israel, or a supporter of Israels
right to exist within secure borders while your administration
speaks of a contiguous Arab State for the Arab Palestinians.
I am willing to understand that in geo-politics there are no friends,
only interests. I further understand that as President of the United
States, the interests of the United States must always
be paramount in your mind. However, I would suggest to you, sir,
that you consider the effect on the long-term interests of the United
States if you reaffirm the long standing policy of abandoning client
states in an effort to gain prestige with others.
In the long run, sir, I believe that you will be able to understand
that the Palestine that you are trying to create is
and will be a terrorist and terrorist sponsoring state. The sham
election conducted by the PA elected a terrorist who promised not
to arrest terrorists, or disarm terrorists. Abu Mazen has allowed
the Islamic courts to execute Arabs in Gaza for the crime
of collaboration with Israel after his election. The
PA continues to indoctrinate the children in PA controlled areas
with hatred of Jews and America, and a love of and desire for death
as a Shahid.
In the short run, sir, you have continued a long-standing policy
of the United States of bringing the Arabs to a table
and demanding a show of good faith from the Sovereign
State of Israel as a first step. Sadly, sir, time after time Israel
has made those first steps and they have never been answered.
Mr. President, it is absolutely, totally impossible to create a
contiguous Palestinian State without slicing Israel
into at least two parts. There is no way that an Arab State can
be constructed in PA controlled areas and make Judea and Samaria
connect with Gaza unless your roadmap includes a non-contiguous
Mr. President, I urge you not to abandon the only democracy in
the Middle East on a long-shot attempt to settle a war which has
been raging for nearly a century; a problem which cannot be solved
as long as one of the parties to the conflict does not believe in
any solution other than the total destruction and dissolution of
the other party. Please understand, sir, that I am not speaking
of a conflict between the State of Israel and the so-called Palestinian
People. I am speaking about the war against the Jews and all
who ally with them even temporarily, by the tribalist states of
the Middle-East and their allies throughout the world.
This is the War Against The Terrorists that the United
States is engaged in. As Usama Bin Laden has said over and over,
this is a global Jihad against the Jews and the Crusaders.
When you sell Israel down the river, I suggest that you carry an
umbrella on your arm and declare that there will be peace
in our time.
Shalom, Berakha, VeTova
