Subject: Support Israel's Sharon against PLO's phony "right of return"(VIPAC)

Dear Mr. President:

The deaths of seven Americans in the recent Islamic terror bombing in
Saudi Arabia are an outrage that demands a strong American response. I
think Vice President Cheney had it just right when he said on 5/13: "The
only way to deal with this threat ultimately is to destroy it. There's no
treaty that can solve this problem. There's no peace agreement no policy
of containment or deterrence that works to deal with this threat. We have
to go find the terrorists."

But if there can be no "Road map" for peace with Al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia
why do you support one for the PLO in Israel's historical and Biblical
heartland of Judea Samaria and Jerusalem?

Imagine how wrong it would have been if Secretary of State Powell had
spoken to the Saudis the way he recently spoke to the Israelis and urged
them to appease the Islamic terrorists attacking them. Imagine how
damaging it would have been if Secretary Powell had demanded that the
Saudis follow a road map for peace with Al Qaeda and immediately grant Al
Qaeda terrorists and the local population supporting them greater
freedom of movement greater tax subsidies and eventually a sovereign
state of their own. Imagine the disastrous consequences if Secretary
Powell had demanded that the humanitarian needs of the local population
supporting Al Qaeda be protected by patrols from a Quartet composed of the
UN European Union Russia and Amnesty International.

By realizing how damaging to America's own fight for survival against
Islamic terror such a scenario would be in Saudi Arabia perhaps you can
now understand how equally wrong and dangerous it is to impose the
Quartet's Road Map upon Israel.

It is not too late to undo the damage of the Quartet's road map. You can
apply the principles articulated by Vice President Cheney to Israel's
fight against PLO terror. And next week when you meet with Prime
Minister Sharon in Washington tell him publicly and privately that until
all PLO terrorists are found and destroyed and until the PLO publicly and
unequivocally drops its phony "right of return" you will not expect the
least concession from Israel.
