Subject: Support Israel: "The Abbas Referendum: Not a Peace Plan

Dear Mr. President:

The current proposal by the Palestinian Arab leader Mahmoud Abbas to
present a “Peace” referendum before the Palestinian Arabs is nothing more
than a publicity stunt. It is not an offering of peace. It is a political
move by Abbas against his terrorist rivals Hamas who are now in control of
the Palestinian Arab Parliament.

An article written by Ben Fishman and Mohammad Yaghi clarifies this false
peace proposal: “Mahmoud Abbas' announcement of a national referendum was
wrongly interpreted as a peace plan. The actual text of the document Abbas
threatened to put to a popular vote much more closely resembles Hamas' own
political program. There is no explicit statement that establishing a
state within the pre-1967 borders would end Palestinian claims over
Israeli territory. In fact the document can be viewed as another
iteration of the PLO's 1974 phased plan that declared a willingness to
accept the establishment of a national authority in any part of historic
Palestine as a step toward "completing the liberation of all Palestinian
territory." (Washington Institute for Near East Policy)

Please do not be fooled by this Palestinian Arab ploy. The Arabs are still
sending murder bombers into Israel to kill civilians. They are still
launching rockets into Israel from Gaza and from Lebanon. Do not be fooled
by this false proposal. I urge you to continue to isolate the terrorist
Palestinian Arab regime. No economic or other aid until they stop the

There is no difference between the Hamas and the Fattah terrorists of
Abbas. They both seek the destruction of Israel.

Respectfully yours
