Tell President Bush (email: president@whitehouse.gov) and Secretary of State Rice, and your Senator and Congressperson and your favorite presidential hopeful, about Gaza. Get them to do something before it is too late, or make them understand why, ultimately, if they do not do anything, Israel will need to do something.

The following letter (edited a tiny bit) published by permission, was written in response to my article Gaza on my mind. Please do write, but don't use the same text.

Ami Isseroff

Dear President Bush:

It's quite a mess we have as a result of American pressure for Israel to pull its soldiers out of Gaza and for "democratic" elections to be held there.

On December 4, the number of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel during 2007 reached the 2000 mark. Sderot has become a ghost town. How can Israel negotiate a peace agreement with the Palestinians when Gaza is occupied by terrorists sworn to Israel's destruction and even the supposed "moderates"won't concede the right of the Jews to a tiny Jewish State?--the only Jewish state in the world, I might add, although there are 22 Arab states.

What will America do about the situation in Gaza that America helped create? How should the rockets that daily threaten the lives and well being of Israeli civilians--and the Palestinian civilians in whose midst Hamas's terror squads operate--be stopped? Should Israel have to do this by herself? And what are America and her "Roadmap" partners planning to do about the fact that the Arab rejection of a "Jewish State" puts us right back to Square 1, when the Arabs refused to accept the U.N. Partition Plan dividing the western part of Palestine into areas for a "Jewish State" and an "Arab State" and made war on the Jews instead?

That same war is still going on; and I do not see how--UNLESS YOU INCLUDE ACTION IN GAZA IN YOUR STRATEGIC PLANNING AND ENCOURAGE YOUR ROADMAP PARTNERS TO DO THE SAME--the horrible situation in Gaza is likely to be resolved. If nothing is done, the rockets are going to get bigger and their trajectory longer. Not all Palestinians want fanatics ruling their lives. But there's little average Palestinians can do to stop the terrorists who claim to be operating in their name.

It's bad enough that Arab League nations and Fatah principals won't recognize the legitimacy of a Jewish State. But if America won't take the lead in doing something to help ordinary Palestinians and Israelis resolve the terror emanating from Gaza, there will be no chance for peace at all. Peace will be nothing but an empty dream.

Dear Mr President
While the fanatical terrorist factions in Gaza are killing each other, the world is very quite, yet the minute Israel gets rid of one of these murderers, there is uproar, mainly from the extreme left.
Seems to me too many people want to see Israel wiped off the face of the map, maybe this is because she is the only democracy in the middle east, please excuse my chuzpah sir, but i think you need her just as much as the Jewish people.
As the most powerful man in the world, i hope and pray you don't leave it too long, before doing something, for all our sakes.
Wishing you and the citizens of America a healthy, happy and peaceful new year.

The Gaza strip was handed over by the State of Israel as a signal of good will for the accomplishment of the requirements of the Peace Process. But from the Gaza Strip threatens arrive which endanger the lives of innocent People.
Your very esteemed intervention in the matter, we all are pretty sure, will speed up the Peace Process towards a final and everlasting solution.
May I take the opportunity of wishing You and Your Family

Marry Xmas and a Fruitful2008.

God Bless YOU.
