Subject: [Vipac-letters] Support Israeli Destruction of Hamas Missiles

Dear Mr. President:

On Monday Sept. 3 while Americans were celebrating the Labor Day
holiday the Israelis of Sderot had nothing to celebrate. On that day the
Jerusalem Post reports that: "In total seven Kassam rockets landed in and
around the western Negev town as Sderot children started their second day
of the new school year. The Islamic Jihad said they had fired nine Kuds-3
rockets saying on their internet site that the attack was "a present for
the start of the new school year."

Mr. President you are planning a highly publicized meeting between Israel
and Palestinian Arabs in two months. If you do not now insist on the
destruction of all Kassam launchers in Gaza INCLUDING THOSE USING HUMAN
chance for success. If even this extreme instance of Hamas in Gaza hiding
behind their children so they can better target Israeli children doesn't
lead you to call upon Israel for immediate total destruction of the entire
Hamas arsenal no matter where it is sheltered then you are no longer a
champion against Islamic terror. The people of Israel and their
supporters here in America will then know they can no longer count on you
in a crisis. And the Islamist terrorists will then know they can attack at
will without suffering negative consequences from your administration.
So neither side will take your conference this November very seriously.

Mr. President now is the time for you to declare just as you would not
tolerate missiles from Cuba fired at school children in Miami so Israel
should not tolerate missiles from Gaza fired at their children. And just
as in World War 2 when America destroyed the Axis military machine even
when it was placed among hundreds of thousands of civilians so too should
Israel destroy the Hamas military arsenal no matter where it is. Such a
bold and righteous stance against the Islamic terror that threatens
America as well as Israel has prospects for success as it did in World
War 2. However your toleration of terror although pleasing the State
Department won't bring victory in America's international fight for
survival against Islamist extremism.
