Subject: [Vipac-letters] Support Israel! No Funds or "Political Horizon" for
Dear Mr. President;
On Feb. 5 Caroline Glick reported the following in the Jerusalem Post:
"Ahead of his summit with Hamas terror masters Khaled Mashaal and Ismail
Haniyeh on Feb. 7 in Mecca Fatah chief and Palestinian Authority Chairman
Mahmoud Abbas said "We must unite the Hamas and Fatah blood in the
struggle against Israel as we did at the beginning of the intifada. We
want a political partnership with Hamas and we are not only optimistic
but also very serious about this. And that's why we're going to Mecca."
"Fatah forces make no attempt to hide their involvement in terror attacks
against Israel. They wear their Aksa Martyr Brigades T-shirts beneath
their official uniforms. And yet this week it was revealed that some
million of the $86.4 million that the US plans to give to Fatah will go to
training 13500 terror forces. That is the US is now openly involved in
training and equipping Palestinian terrorists who as Abbas makes clear
are seeking to expand their operations to kill Israelis.
"Furthermore last month Rice signaled that the US is easing off its
refusal to engage the Hamas terror group. Speaking to European reporters
Rice referred to the jihadist terror group as a "resistance movement."
Mr. President Caroline Glick's report is disheartening to those who are
willing to support you if you are willing to fight and not finance
Islamist terror. Please Mr. President do not send another dime of
American taxpayer's money to the Islamist terrorists in the PLO PA and
Hamas. And don't let Secretary Rice provide a "political horizon" for a
PLO terror state.
