Write a Letter for Israel
I found this letter at RightTruth. We are asked to use the following letter as a template, or use it as is, and send by email to Bush, Cheney, Rice and Obama.
I added a plea to Bush and Rice to not again, press Israel into signing a cease fire until Israel has damaged Hamas beyond all recognition.
It’s easy to send. When finished, the letter is sent through e-mail. Copies are automatically sent to the Knesset. Just use the link that follows the sample letter.
Thanks for participating!

URGENT ACTION ALERT – A Salute to Israel and the IDF
Dear President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary of State Rice, and President-elect O`Bama,
In 2005 Israel completely removed 10,000 Jewish residents from the Gaza strip because there were international promises assuring that this sacrifice would bring peace. Instead, this major bid for peace was answered with continued relentless rocket and missile attacks.
We know that for the last 8 years Israel has withstood a formidable barrage of more than 10,000 rockets fired by terrorists into its sovereign territory. This offensive war waged by Hamas Palestinian terrorists has endangered innocent Israeli civilians. The government of Israel has demonstrated an unprecedented level of tolerance by avoiding a response.
I would like to express my profound appreciation for your adamant support for Israel`s right to defend itself. You understand that the 100 missiles fired into Israel on Wednesday and Thursday during the 2008 Christmas holiday left Israel with no alternative but to take military action to defend its citizens. After Hamas terrorists refused to extend the cease-fire agreement Israel had no recourse other than to finally retaliate.
The support of our US administration is especially important during this time of war as media bias and misinformation and international criticism is building against Israel. The critics of Israel ignore the provocation and lengthy history of Hamas brutality against Israeli civilians.
For example, the critics overlook the recent news out of Gaza that didn`t make most of the mainstream media. Hamas legislators have marked the Christmas season by passing a Sharia criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion. Hamas has endorsed the nailing of enemies of Islam to crosses at the very time it announced resumption of Jihad. (Bill Bennett, 12-31-08). Murder, beheadings and amputation of limbs remain legal punishment for offenses against Islam. That is the Sharia law they apparently approve.
Neither are critics of Israel protesting that Christians be spared from Hamas savagery. In December while Hamas continued to stage missile attacks against Jewish daycare centers and schools, Gazan Christians were attacked by a mortar shell while standing in line at the Erez Crossing to travel to Bethlehem for Christmas.
These are but a few strong reminders that if Hamas prevails, it will signal to the world that we are regressing into 7th Century darkness in contrast to Western Judeo-Christian enlightenment and advances in liberty. I applaud the valiant Israeli initiative and the bravery of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to stop the rocket attacks. Since the Hamas charter calls for the complete destruction of Israel, this initiative is not an option, but a necessity toward peace and the promotion of democracy and freedom. United States policy must remain clear in support of Israel and in opposition to Hamas terrorism, Iran`s proxy war.
Yes! I`ll send a letter in support of Israel!

RightTruth has a good article by Charles Krauthammer just after the letter. Run over and read it.
