To the editor:
There is a plan brewing in the United Nations to unilaterally give Palestinian refugees their own state, with complete disregard for the state of Israel. This state would include the terrorist group Hamas in its government, an Iran-backed, U.S. State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization that is responsible for firing thousands of rockets at civilian targets in Israel.
Palestinian leaders refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people and have stated that they wish to drive all the Jews into the sea. Israel has given many concessions and much land (Gaza, the Sinai) in a desire for peace, but in return has experienced deadly violence and bombings from terrorist groups such as Hamas. In fact, the destruction of Israel is a central tenet of Hamas’ mission statement. The Palestinians have yet to prove themselves capable of self-government without corruption and continue to spread anti-Semitic propaganda to their children.
I hope that our country will stand strong in the face of this terrible plan and support one of our closest and most dependable allies in the world: Israel.
