Subject: Support Israel America's best ally against Islamic terror! (VIPAC)
Dear Mr. President:
U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz surprised many by telling the
Washington Post last Friday that following the war in Iraq his government
will concentrate its efforts both on establishing a Palestinian state and
against the Jewish "settlements" in Judea and Samaria.
Mr. President I believe you are greatly mistaken to follow this policy.
Throwing Israel to the Arabs to mollify them after an American defeat of Iraq
was the policy followed by your father and Secretary of State James Baker at
the Madrid Conference in 1991. That policy brought no lasting security to
America from Arab terror (as the 9/11 attacks demonstrated) and no lasting
benefit to his political popularity (as his subsequent defeat at the polls by
Bill Clinton demonstrated).
Islamic terror today is America's cruelest and most deadly foe. America has
the best chance of winning its own fight for survival against Islamic terror
by fighting side by side and shoulder to shoulder with Israel not by selling
Israel out thereby hoping to appease the murderous hatred of Arab and
Islamic terror. Remember Winston Churchill's warning against appeasement:
Feeding your friends to a crocodile only guarantees that the savage beast
will eat you last.
