Subject: Support Israel not UN resolutions appeasing PLO terror!(VIPAC)

Dear Mr. President:

On Wednesday May 19 your administration allowed a UN Security Council
resolution condemning Israel to pass. I think you were wrong to do so.
And I think that in a closely fought presidential election season you
were not wise to alienate your strongest supporters by abandoning Israel
to the bigoted lynch mob at the UN

American Deputy Ambassador to the UN James Cunningham said after the UN
vote "While we believe that Israel has the right to act to defend itself
and its citizens we do not see that its operations in Gaza in the last
few days serve the purposes of peace and security."

Your administration chose to ignore the explanation provided by Israel's
Ambassador Dan Gillerman. "The whole of Gaza and Rafiach in particular
is on the verge of becoming a missile base aimed at Israel's cities and
civilians" he said. "What would the international community have Israel
do? Just sit back and wait for this horrific scenario to materialize?...
The suffering of the Palestinian population is a direct result of
Palestinian terrorism aimed at innocent Israelis and the need for Israel
to protect its citizens from these abhorrent attacks. Rather than
criticizing Israel for damaging private property those truly concerned
for Palestinian welfare should instead demand that the terrorists stop
using homes to shield their illegal operations."

Mr. President you did not vote to condemn the Egyptians who are RIGHT NOW
turning a blind eye to the stockpile of advanced missiles stored in the
northern Sinai waiting to be smuggled into Gaza and fired into Jewish
homes. You did not vote to condemn Iran which financed this new shipment
of highly accurate missiles meant to kill large numbers of Jews. Why then
should patriotic Americans angered at this betrayal of Israel's fight for
survival choose to vote for you?

Sincerely
