|Arabs are Occupying Jewish Land. I am against the Road Map..|

Finance Minister Netanyahu:
This is a copy of an email sent to both Prime Minister Sharon and Presient George Bush on June 1, 2003. You will notice that I included mention of some of your ideals in it. A Palestinian state is a very grave mistake promoted by President Bush who is supposed to be a friend of Israel. I pray that the Road Map will be derailed, particularly when once again the PA and Arafat prove untrustworthy. I doubt that you would have supported this Road Map if you had been Prime Minister. G-d bless Israel.

Prime Minister Sharon:
Please share this email with your cabinet. Do you remember your own words that "Israel will not become another Czechoslovakia?" I was greatly saddened and outraged that my president, George Bush and the US State Department has pressured Israel with the threat of withholding $10 Billion in aid on condition of accepting the "Road Map" to "Nowhere." There are many American Christians and Jews and Republicans who are even today protesting the US pressure as well as Israel's acceptance. This email which I am sending to you is also being sent to President George Bush. This Road Map will not help his re-election, as some of his advisors may think.
Here are a few facts to negate this Road Map:
FACT #1: The Arabs (Palestinians) are occupying Israel's Land, not the other way around. The UN in 1920 intended that the West Bank be part of the Jewish state/homeland. However, Jordan seized the West Bank in a few years later,. and Israel acquired it back in 1967 after Jordan participated against Israel in the 1967 War. This Land, Samaria and Judea is home to many Israelis as well as the place of gerat historial and Biblical Jewish sites. The Jews love this land upon which they walk and live and grow fruit trees which feed them and even Europe. The Arabs do not love this land. They would only love to destroy the Jews who live there.
FACT #2: Israel cannot negotiate from a position of weakness with the Arabs. Terrorism cannot and SHOULD NOT be rewarded. The US was able to disarm and topple the Soviet regime through a position of military strength. Ronald Reagan had a strong US military and a star wars anti missle project in the works which was his bargaining tool with Michal Gorbachev. Israel should not be sending the message that terrorism will be rewarded if enough citizens are killed. Terrorists should not be given their own state. Even Abu Mazen aided in the killing of the Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich in 1972. Abu Mazen also denies the Holocaust.
FACT #3: Arafat is STILL in charge of the PA. The removal of Arafat was a primary condition for Israel to consider ANY kind of peace negotiations with the Palestinians. Abu Mazen is Arafat's puppet. It is very plain to see this. As long as Hamas exists and Arafat controls the purse strings and bank accounts, there will be continued violence to Israel even if there is a temporary ceasefire, or as soon as a PA state is in place.
FACT #4: Colin Powell and the US State Department are Arabists, that is, the State Department is pro-Arab. The Road Map is entirely in the Arab's interests and not in support of Israel. George Bush may say that he is Israel's friend, but the Road Map says something entirely different. You must know very well, Prime Minister, that the Bush Administration is seeking to appease Saud Arabia (which had 15 of the 19 September 11th hijackers), the other Arab countries, the EU and Russia (which countries did not support the US in the Iraq War) as well as Tony Blair. This appeasement comes at Israel's expense. Is this fair? No, it is not. This appeasement is a contradition of the Buish doctrine that Terrorist Regimes and those that support and harbor terrorists are not friends of the US and will be brought down. The PA supports and harbors terrorists!!!
FACT 5: The Israeli populace overwhelmingly elected the Likud Party in the last election because the Likud took a hard line against terrorism and negated the Oslo Accords which was land for peace. The Arabs themselves made the Oslo Accords null and void by their actions. The Road Map is worse than the Oslo Accords. Has your government sold Israel down the river for the sake of pleasing George Bush and to receive the $10 billion in aid? There are many wealthy Jews and others who would give money to Israel if needed. Israel should not rely on the US in exchange for false security. Loss of any of Israel's land is a threat to Israel's security in addition to creating a terrorist state on Israel's border.
FACT #6: There already exists a Palestinian state, and it is called Jordan. Jordan's population is 70% Palestinian. There is no need to create a 2nd Palestinian state. Rabi Melamed in the West Bank had the best solution. He said that the Torah has the answer. Let those who acknowledge Israel's right to exists to live among us. Let those who wish to destroy us go live somewhere else. Saudi Arabia has a lot of land, and Jordan is a place where these discontents can be transferred out of Israel. Benny Elon as you know supports this plan of transfer as well as at least 30% of Israelis. Transfer of this population out of the land is the best solution.
FACT #7: Colin Powell directly stated that the US does not intend to make any changes to the Road Map, which unfortunately has several security issues for Israel. The State Department and EU has heavily slanted the Road Map in favor of the Arabs. (I do not call them Palestinians.)
FACT #8: Israel is the ONLY homeland for the Jews given to them by the Almighty of Israel. The Arabs have several individual nations of their own. The Jews have only one. However, it is the most BLESSED nation on earth, even more so than the United States. One day the nations shall learn of the L-rd from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:1-5. Israel's biblical borders as promised to Abraham not only includes the West Bank but even a portion of the East Bank of the Jordan as well as part of southern Lebanon.
Rush Limbaugh, who had been to Israel and whom you have likely met, stated on his call-in radio show that the only way for there to be peace in the Middle East between Israel and the Palestinians is for one side to have victory, such as there was in WWII. Israel can only successfully negotiate any peace from a position of strength without any compromise to its own security and without giving away any more of its own LAND. The United States does not hold the key to Israel's political future. Prime Minister, you hold the key to Israel's political future.
Your former political party rival, Benjamin Netanyahu, had some excellent ideas which you may want to reconsider. Those ideas held to a strong Israel, which included: EXPELL Yasser Arafat, DISMANTLE the PA, DECLARE Oslo null and void (no more land for peace), ANNEX the West Bank, TRANSFER to Jordan the malcontents, DESTROY all terrorist groups within Israel's borders then allow the peaceful Arabs/Palestinians who recognize the legitimacy and right of the Jewish state to exist to live under Israel's humanitarian sovereignty. The idea of repeating Oslo and even worse, plus rewarding terrorists with a state defies ALL logic and a contradiction of the Bush Doctrine on terror.
It is with prayer and concern that I end this message to encourage and to suggest that Israel re-examine its support of the Road Map. Indeed there may be consequences to pay from the Almighty to those nations who would seek to divide and parcel out the Land covenanted to the Chosen People. As scripture says, "those who curse you, I will curse, and those who bless you, I will bless." Just one example, there have been an unprecedented number of tornadoes in the US this spring when the US began to intensify pressure upon Israel in regard to the Road Map. Ilan Ramon wanted a million trees to be planted in all of Israel, including the West Bank. May the meek of the earth be blessed. Next year in Jerusalem.
