Letter to the editor of
The Jewish Bulletin:

July 26, 2002

Dear Editor:

Most of us, even though we may not have voted for him, approve of the president's resolute fight against the evil Islamists whose goals are to bring the United States to its knees and to destroy Israel.

In order to punish those whom we believe to be responsible for the Sept. 11 attack, we pursue them halfway across the world with the full power of our military force. How disappointing, therefore, that the president would "harshly rebuke" Prime Minister Ariel Sharon for using military force to crush those who have killed and tormented his countrymen for more than 18 months. More than 350 Israelis have died in these massacres — equivalent to about 25,000 Americans. Would the United States stand still for that? Of course not.

Sharon, like President Bush, is responsible for the welfare and security of his people. Would Bush use "restraint" if Americans were daily killed in our cities by merciless enemies? For the president to rebuke Sharon for his actions and to keep him from completing his task of destroying the deadly enemies of Israel is cynical, hypocritical, dictated by short-term political expediency and unworthy of him.

Gerardo Joffe, President
