Subject: Support Israel! DC sniper evil & PLO bombers worse! (VIPAC)
Dear Mr. President:
The DC sniper is a horrible murderer who has terrified the residents of our
nation's capital and its environs. Imagine for a moment if this sniper were
known to have come from a specific neighborhood just a few miles away from
the heart of Washington. And then imagine if this sniper were just one of
hundreds of snipers who over the last two years had come from that
neighborhood to murder Americans at random. Now imagine if the vast majority
of people in that neighborhood in one opinion poll after another expressed
their support and sympathy for all of these snipers.
After having done all of that finally imagine what would be your response as
Commander-in-Chief of the US armed forces. My guess and my hope is that
your response to eliminate those murderers and their supporters would be so
powerful that unfortunately but inevitably the collateral damage of
innocent and not-so-innocent civilians would be extensive. In comparison
the Israeli army's current response to PLO terrorism in Gaza Judea and
Samaria would probably look quite tame.
Therefore please stop urging Israel to scale back their war against Islamic
terror. Such a policy of appeasement of terror is one that your
administration has thankfully clearly demonstrated that it does not plan to
follow for itself. Please do not urge Israel to follow a policy that is as
bad for America as it is for Israel.
