Subject: [Vipac-letters] Support Israel! No USA guns or funds for PLO!
Dear Mr. President:
On January 11 in Ramallah PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas said at an annual
Fatah public meeting that: "We have a legitimate right to direct our guns
against the Israeli occupation. It is forbidden to use these guns against
"Direct our guns against the Israeli occupation" means killing Israelis.
"It is forbidden to use these guns against Palestinians" means Abbas has
absolutely no intention to use lethal force against Hamas despite its
ongoing deadly terror campaign including rocket fire against Israel.
Your administration has recently given 86 million dollars worth of guns
and bullets to Abbas and his PLO. If you are serious about fighting and
winning America's war for survival against Islamist terror you will stop
sending arms to Abbas who has now publicly declared common cause with the
Islamist terrorists of Hamas. Instead when Secretary of State Rice
visits Israel on her upcoming trip to the Middle East let her proclaim an
end of U.S. aid to all organizations including the PLO that fail to
oppose the ongoing murderous terror campaign of Hamas.
Anything short of this would be an acceptance by your administration of
the inevitable use of American supplied weapons to murder Israelis.
