OPEN LETTER TO THE OU, ADL AND MAJOR US JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS:
by Marlene Young
ONLY AFSI, Lubavitch and ZOA, Freeman Center and a minority of other brave souls had the strength to speak the truth
WHY WERE YOU EITHER SILENT OR SUPPORTIVE OF SHARON\'S PLAN TO UNILATERALLY DESTROY JEWISH COMMUNITIES AND SURRENDER JEWISH LAND TO THE PA TERRORIST GROUPS HAMAS, ISLAMIC JIHAD, PLO, PFLP, AND FATAH/AL AQSA MARTYRS BRIGADES?
HAD WE SPOKEN WITH A UNITED VOICE THIS DANGEROUS PRECEDENCE AND TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE WOULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED.
Even if you found a reason to support him or remain silent, why didn\'t you come to the aid and support of the innocent expelled Jewish citizens, whose only crime was being Jewish, who are now homeless, and find themselves in motels and caravans?
Why didn\'t you demand that Sharon build before he destroyed? Why did he destroy 23 thriving, beautiful Jewish communities before he built 10,000 new homes, 30 new synagogues and Mikvot, 30 new schools? In his haste to destroy, he prepared only temporary housing- hundreds of TINY LEAKING CARAVANS and Motel rooms for the expelled citizens. His entire plan encompassed only an elaborate plan for the jailing and forced expulsion of Jewish citizens, training IDF troops and Special Paramilitary Police in Expulsion techniques, and Destruction of Jewish communities.
Why do you stand silent as Jewish citizen\'s Democratic right to protest and Freedom of Movement was trampled by the Sharon government, and as Jewish protestors and opponents of Sharon\'s Plan, and Jewish "Settlers" opposing their expulsion are beaten by Police and jailed?
Why do you stand silent as Jewish child protestors are beaten on the streets of Jerusalem and Hebron by Yassam Special Police Forces Sharon trained, and as Child Protestors are jailed until trial?
Why do you stand silent as Jewish protestors are arrested and jailed but 900 Palestinian terrorists were released from jails, and especially since it has been proven that a large percent of released PA terrorists commit suicide attacks?
Why do you stand silent as the concept of forced Jewish Expulsion for \'peace\' has been introduced in the World, even as no other minority, religious or ethnic group can be "legally" forcfully expelled anywhere on Earth, in any Conflict on Earth, even in land disputes, such as the Kurds, Copts, Shiites, Sunnis, etc, and no Democracy is allowed to EXPEL MINORITIES to create an area of only one religion, giving lie to the statement often given of "HOW CAN 10,000 JEWS LIVE AMONG 1.5 MILLION ARABS". EVERY COUNTRY HAS MINORITIES LIVING AMONG THEM INCLUDING ISRAEL.
And even if you accepted the confiscation of Jews\' businesses by the PA Arabs, (even as Arabs have farms and businesses all over Israel and the USA), WHY do you not question why those in the Sharon government who are involved in the Disengagement Plan are allowed to profit finacially from the confiscation and "sale" of Jewish businesses and farms and property to the PA Arabs? WHY are Dov Weisglass, Yossi Beilin, Shimon Peres, Eival Giladi and others allowed to profit financially from the confiscation of the Jews\' businesses that they promoted, plotted and arranged in partnerships they have a financial interest in including the Economic Cooperation Foundation (ECF) headed by Yossi Beilin and the Portland Trust? WHY were Jewish farmer owners only "paid" PENNIES on the dollar for the hothouses, farms and businesses?
Why do you say that you must "support Democratic decisions" even though Ariel Sharon fired Rightists from his Party who opposed his Plan, discarded the Platform to which he was elected and adopted an unelectd far-Left Platform, ignored a Likud Party vote against the Disengagement, formed a coalition with the Radical Left, including the Radical Leftist Peres as his VICE PREMIER, and Left Parties and Arab parties to form a coalition of 14 votes against only 4 Likud Right wing votes, that did not represent the Democratic election of a Right Wing Likud Party, and then misused the IDF as a political brute force against the Right wing, and Religious Zionists, who elected a Right Wing Platform in Democratic Elections?
Why didn\'t you question the Sharon government why a "Democratic" PA could not build their own farms all these years, and hothouses in the land they already have been given under Oslo and with the $$billions they have already been given from the EU and USAID, and why the Palestinians had to have only the JEWS\' hothouses, had to confiscate the JEWS\' businesses, that the JEWS had worked to develop from dust out of barren land. Foreign Nationals and MINORITIES are ALLOWED to own businesses in DEMOCRACIES.
Why do you stand silent as Sharon decides he can destroy beautiful Synagogues and defile Jewish Graveyards, even as around the world in every area of conflict no armed force can enter or touch a Mosque or Church even if, L\'Havdil, armed terrorists are holed up in a Mosque or Church, and no country can destroy Graveyards of other religions or nationalities? Democracies are bound to protect Holy sites and Graveyards, but you want it both ways, to call the PA "Democratic" for the purpose of giving it billions of Aid dollars, but not expect it to uphold Democratic principles!
Why didn\'t you demand the eradication of the PA terror groups Hamas, Islamic Jihad Ftah/Al Aqsa Martyrs before the Jewish Expulsion? Why didn\'t you demand the expulsion and destruction of Palestinian village Beit Foruk in the West Bank from which 12 Palestinian suicide bombers came from? WHY is it that you would not even expect even one Palestinian terrorist be Expelled or one mosque, but you so easily go along with 10,000 INNOCENT, LAW-ABIDING, JEWS\' EXPULSION and COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF JEWISH NEIGHBORHOODS to appease armed terror groups present within a miles\' radius? IN FACT you defend mosques in Israel and around the world, more than you now defend synagogues!
Why do you not comment on the ability of Abbas, Dahlan, Ereket, and Egypt to control the PA Terror groups all along! Since they are able to control the terror groups when they want to, when they are given the opportunity to witness the expulsion of thousands of Jews, why are they not held accountable for these past ten years of mass terrorist homicide and injury of 10,000 Jews after the Oslo Accords?
Why do you not comment on the PA\'s reward of Jews\' land, Jews\' businesses, and Jews\' expulsion after they allowed the PA terror groups to murder and maim 10,000 Jews in the worst terrorist attacks in Israel\'s history these past ten years since the Oslo and Wye Accords? What do they lose nothing, but only gain for this Genocidal Terror against Innocent Israeli civilians?
