them to support Israel

Dear Sir:

The President's recent speech to the UN on the danger that Iraq poses to the=
=20
people
of the world and the necessity of taking strong pre-emptive measures to=20
foreclose that danger is a model of courageous and rational thinking. He ha=
s=20
taken the responsible path and for that he is to be commended.

But the US administration is making one big mistake: It do not seem to see=20
that the Palestinian Authority fits into the same pattern as that of Saddam=20
Hussein=E2=80=99s Iraq and that what is good for the goose is good for the=20=
gander.=20
The Palestinian Authority has violated all of its pledges to restrain=20
violence and has actively supported and instigated the murder of Israeli=20
citizens. Its leaders were granted land weapons money and political=20
authority in return for only one pledge: to restrain the violence; but they=20
did the opposite of that. Hundreds of people have lost their lives in Arafat=
=E2=80=99
s Oslo war and no one knows how many more will follow after them.

If Oslo was a test the results are in and they are unambiguous: the=20
Palestinians have shown time and time again in opportunity after=20
opportunity that they are not interested in living together with Israel in=20
peace. This is not just a matter of a corrupt leadership. Whatever the cause=
=20
at least 85% of the Palestinian population now fully supports the killing of=
=20
any and all Israeli Jews. The evidence of good neighborly
intentions is just not there.

And yet despite all that the President has made it clear that there is=20
still room to consider the possibility of creating a Palestinian state withi=
n=20
the borders of present-day Israel. That is folly. After all the warnings al=
l=20
the evidence all the chances and opportunities there has to come a time=20
when you reach a conclusion about what the future will bring.

Responsible leadership means taking preventative action to forestall=20
situations of great danger to innocent lives. It often means taking a=20
personal risk. The President deserves to be congratulated for taking that=20
risk in order to close down Iraq. But there is no reason why rational=20
responsible decision-making should be excluded from the Israeli-Palestinian=20
conflict. We have tried the path of Israeli concessions and it has not=20
worked. It is time to try something in the other direction.

Yours sincerely
