It's time for a Roll Call of those who would defend Israel and end terrorism...

Reader comment on item: New York Sun Columnist Weighs in on Creation of State of Israel

Submitted by Rick House (United States), Jul 19, 2006 at 23:30

Dear Mr. Pipes and my fellow respondents,

I've been thinking about Israel and the course and proliferation of terrorism in the world for some time now and I think I've thought of a way to respond that will have some effect. I propose a world-wide citizen Roll Call for respondents who believe Israel has a right to exist and that terrorism (as defined by the United Nations) is wrong and worth fighting against. My friends, it is my belief that most muslims believe that their enemies are limited to Jews, the state of Israel, and the leaders of the nations supporting Israel. You hear it all the time.

They say we like Americans, (or Germans, or Italians, or Russians -- or even the French), our fight is against your leaders who treat us unfairly, who persecute us and our faith. It's time for al-Qa'ida, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the countless other terrorist groups to know the reality of their opposition. Therefore, I posit the following:

If you believe Israel has a right to peacefully exist...

and

If you believe that terrorism in all its forms are wrong...

and

If you are willing to take up arms and/or contribute financially to the defense of Israel...

and

If you are willing to take up arms and /or contribute financially to end terrorism...

then answer the Roll Call...

Rick House
