Thanks. It is about time people in authority start telling the truth about what is going on. It never ceases to amaze me that I continually hear that Yaser Arifat is the democratically elected Presedent of the Palistinean people. Ya right!. If my memory serves me right, everyone who ran against him that was a serious chellange was intimdated or worse to not run. And by the way, what do you call a person whose term ran out in 1998, no election has been held since and still claims to be demecratically elected. Answer, a dictator.

aAgain, as I listened to Jimmy Carter tell Jim Lehre that the PA just want peace with the Isrealis, I am glad he is no longer in office.

My kid comes home from college and it is like he is just spewing out the same garbage from these professors, without even think through or checking to see if what they say or the news says is based in any facts or reality what-so-ever. It appears that when the news or mideast experts are talking about Isreal or the Islamist that I am trapped in Alice in the Looking Glass.

People better wake up. These Islamists only grevence with us is that we are still breathing air or that we refuse to convert to Islam. The only thing we can do is to fight these people as hard and as long as we need to win this war. But, as you well know, in this day and age just saying something like the truth will get you labeled as a racest, against Islam and possibly jepordize your future.

I read and study extensively in this area and I like to hear and read what you say whenever I can. It is nice to hear from someone who will tell the truth and stick to his principals.

Keep up the good work, I'm rooting for you.
