Subject: [Vipac-letters] Support Israel! No Bush Funding for Abbas PLO

Dear Mr. President:

Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) president Morton A. Klein stated
that the Mahmoud Abbas' recent invitations to other terrorist groups to
join his government represent "further proof that Mahmoud Abbas is not a
moderate peace-maker that so many claim him to be but is in fact an
extremist terrorist committed to Fatah's long-standing goal of destroying
Israel. This should not be so surprising in light of his recent statement
that 'our rifles all our rifles are aimed at the Occupation [Israel].'"

In the United States Congress Representative Nita M. Lowey Democrat of
New York is blocking $86 million that your administration wants to give
to Mr. Abbas?s security forces. An aide to Ms. Lowey said she would lift
the hold when the State Department provided guarantees that the money
would be used only for nonlethal security assistance like uniforms and
communications equipment.

Mr. President in view of Abbas' recent invitation to terror groups to
join his government and in view of his pledge to use his rifles against
Israel please reconsider the $86 million you are trying to give to the
PLO leader. Please acknowledge the legitimacy of Representative Lowey's
efforts in Congress and Morton Klein's arguments outside of Congress and
join them in ending all your administration's efforts at funding
Palestinian Arab terror.
