Dear Mr. President:
A recent article in The New York Times on a meeting in Riyadh Saudi
Arabia of the leaders of 21 Arab governments reported that these =93Arab
leaders called on Israel to embrace a peace initiative that would have it
withdraw from the land it occupied in the 1967 war in exchange for full
diplomatic relations with them saying the window would not remain open
for long.=94 In the summer of 2005 Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza.
The Palestinian Arabs immediately began a war against Israeli civilians in
pre-1967 Israel with almost daily rocket attacks. In 2000 Israel
withdrew for the security corridor it had made in southern Lebanon as a
result of years of terrorist attacks against its civilian population in
its northern area. In the summer of 2006 Arabs used that same area to
launch a war against Israel=92s civilian population. These attacks against
civilians were on a level that had not been seen by a western country
since the Nazi blitzkrieg of World War II.
The Times reported that =93Israel said it welcomed the offer of
normalization and peace but made clear that it had numerous reservations
about the offer.=94 Can anyone wonder why Israel has =93reservations=94 abo=
Arab sincerity with regard to peaceful co-existence with the Jewish State?
The Jerusalem Post reported that the leader of Hamas the Palestinian Arab
terrorist organization that controls the Palestinian Arab Authority
=93declared that his movement would continue to launch attacks on Israel
despite the formation of the PA unity government. Addressing supporters in
Gaza City by phone Mashaal said: "We will never give up our principles;
anyone who thinks that Hamas is tired or weak is mistaken. Hamas has not
stopped its military operations."
Land for peace is not an option for Israel as long as its enemies continue
to plot its destruction.
I urge you to continue your support of Israel. The Arab rhetoric is false
and will lead to further war.
