Update for Friends of Israel in the USA
Senate Resolution which is dangerous for Israel
Senate Resolution 321 (S.RES. 321) has just been introduced in anticipation of the upcoming "peace" conference in November. The resolution " calls on President Bush to ... make a 2-state settlement a top priority".
Why is that bad?
a. A 2-state settlement means establishing a new Arab ("Palestinian") state in Judea and Samaria. These areas are just a bike-ride away from all of Israel's major cities (Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, etc.) and from Israel's sole international airport (Ben-Gurion airport). Such a state would be an existential danger to the only Jewish state in the world -- Israel. Better one less Arab state -- than no more Jewish state.
b. A recent poll (by Pew, an international research group) found that 70% of Palestinians support suicide bombings. Should a people with these attitudes be rewarded with their own state?
c. Tiny Israel already has an active Northern front (last year's Lebanon war) and an active Southern front (Sderot and its rockets). Should the United States really urge her to add a third front -- this time in Central Israel, where 70% of Israel's population resides??
PLEASE TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION:

I have recently learned that PM Olmert, Israel's highly unpopular Prime Minister, gave $16 million to PA Pres. Mahmoud Abbas who in turn handed the money over to Hamas. Hamas is on the State. Dept.'s Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) list. Giving money to an FTO is against the law, and part of the punishment for breaking the law is that the person cannot enter the U.S.
Secy. of State Condoleezza Rice is also advocating giving money to Abbas, money which Abbas is likely to turn over, in part, to Hamas and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
So my question is, "How come Ms. Rice is inviting PM Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas to Washington in November for a summit, when on the face of it, both cannot enter the U.S. because of their funding terrorism?"
Thank you for your attention to this matter. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Everyone keeps saying that the November USA-Arab-Israel conference "must" decide to set up a monster ... a Palestinian state.
We really need our friends in the United States to urgently contact their Jewish newspapers, radio shows, radio stations, their rabbis and presidents of their synagogues and organizations, and ask: " Why is American policy supporting a Palestinian state right next to Tel Aviv?"
Press the person you are speaking to: "I understand from my contacts in Israel that Israeli polls show that Israelis do not want to have a new terrorist state right next to them. How can you, rabbi/president/editor, help to make sure, at least, that American policy is not pushing something fatal for Israel in the context of the upcoming November International conference? Should we not be concerned that Palestinian statehood right next door to Tel-Aviv, and the rockets and suicide bombings that will come with it -- might terminate the State of Israel, the only Jewish state in the world?
Any media outfit, Jewish or otherwise, however minor, which raises the issue of NOT pushing Israel to establish a Palestinian state, would be extremely helpful to us here. So please, call the newspaper, radio station and TV station (Jewish or otherwise) that YOU patronize.
Even better: persuade your local Jewish (or other) newspaper editor, Jewish reporter or Jewish talk-show host, to call these leaders on your behalf. After all -- what are talk shows for??
We thank all our friends in the USA, Jewish and otherwise, for extending a helping hand -- extending your helpful hand as far as your telephone receiver -- to save Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem and Ben-Gurion airport from turning into monstrous versions of little Sderot. If you are helping with this -- helping to save Israel -- please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate who you spoke to, when, and what was their reply.
