As you read this letter, America's war on terror is being compromised and Israel's future is being threatened by a meeting that was convened by an American government on American soil. The ironies are chilling: unrepentant terrorists invited to a "peace conference," where the only democracy in the Middle East had to defend its right to exist.
What can Condoleeza Rice be thinking? The war against the terrorists in Iraq is at a critical turning point. An American Secretary of State should not have been in Annapolis putting our most faithful ally on the defensive, but in Baghdad brokering a reconciliation between Iraqi factions and locking down a victory for which nearly 4,000 Americans have given their lives. Iraq is the central front in the holy war against the West being waged by al-Qaeda and the Islamic Republic of Iran, and an American defeat in Iraq would lead to an escalation of that war to proportions that would make the current conflict in Iraq seem tame by comparison.
Instead, Secretary of State Rice has been out-Clintoning Bill Clinton by shuttling between capitals in the Middle East in an attempt to cut a piece of flesh from a frontline state in the war on terror. Once again, in a replay of what happened eight years ago, the U.S. hopes against hope that bribery and concessions will turn them Palestinian wolves into doves and that diplomacy will make them agree to live side by side with a state, Israel, they believe is inhabited by pigs and monkeys.
The Palestinians do not want to live alongside a Jewish state; they want to destroy it. Any "diplomacy" that does not proceed from this assumption is part of the problem rather than part of the solution. The majority of Palestinians have voted for a party, Hamas, whose chief goal- the "obliteration" of Israelis declared in its charter. They have been fighting a sixty-year war against the Jews - men, women and children in which concessions like the ones Bush and Rice are trying to force on Israel only lead to further slaughter and new demands.
The ambush Bush and Rice prepared for Israel in Annapolis will fail because the Palestinians are committed to terrorism and regard negotiation as violence by other means. Seventy percent of Palestinians support suicide bombing and seventy percent support Hamas. The other thirty support the Islamo-fascists of Fatah and their terrorist armies: the al Aqsa Martyrs Bridge, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Palestine Islamic Jihad.
It's indicative of the bad faith of the architects of Annapolis that they have persuaded Syria, the murderer of Christian and democratic Lebanon and refuge for Saddam's bloodthirsty lieutenants, to come to the table and parley for a return of the Golan Heights so that they can begin shelling Israeli farmers again.
The Palestinians are not the cause of the Islamic crusade against the West; they are an integral part of it. Giving them a piece of Israel in East Jerusalem will not satisfy their hunger for conquest. It will only whet their appetite for more.
The Munich Conference in 1938 led to a war in which 70 million lives were lost and the world was introduced to the term "genocide." The Munich in Annapolis will be a step towards the new genocide being planned by Iran's Ahmadinejad, Hamas' al-Zahar, Syria's Assad, and all the other Islamofascists in the Arab world whose deepest dream is an Islamic Reich which is Judenrein "from the river to the sea."
We need your help to deliver a clear and uncompromising message - an immediate message- to the Bush administration that the meeting that took place is a betrayal of what we are fighting for in the war on terror.
The Freedom Center has been attempting to wake Americans up to the dangers we face from radical Islam and to the fact that the state of Israel is the canary in the mine in foretelling what the terrorists have in store. We have published "Why Israel is the Victim," "Big Lies: The Arabs' Propaganda War Against Israel," "The Nazi Roots of Palestinian Nationalism" and pamphlets about Islamic Jihad distributing nearly one million copies of them, primarily to students on America's campuses. In 2007 we made four flash videos. One of them, "What Really Happened in the Middle East," was viewed by over 1.5 million people. FrontPagemag.com, the daily news site of the Center with over 600,000 unique visitors a month, has featured thousands of articles on the Middle East, Israel, the Jihad, and this week on the slow motion suicide of Condoleeza Rice's "peace process."
