Throwing Israel To The Dogs

This article by Emanuel A. Winston in AZIN is reproduced from
Who are the dogs? Packs of dogs can be extremely dangerous, particularly when there is a past history of their savaging a victim. The pack to which I refer is the "Quartet", which is gathering to close in on Israel. The "Quartet" is comprised of the United Nations, the U.S. State Department, the European Union and Russia.

..."How can America support a ‘Road Map’ that would (A) make a mockery of their war against terrorism by rewarding terrorism with statehood, undermining U.S. credibility world-wide; (B) betray America’s commitment to human rights; (C) after the religious cleansing of Bethlehem, Beit Jallah and Ramallah, further threaten the future of Christians in the region; (D) expose the Hashemite Jordan to a Palestinian take-over; (E) encourage intransigence from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, and other Terrorist states?”(1)

It is most unfortunate that this issue of Israel’s future security, shape and sovereignty must be dealt with now, when the war against Iraq needs unity. Colin Powell is leading the effort to get support of the recalcitrant states such as France and Germany. However, to strive to secure Israel’s future now is not to be unsupportive of America’s goals in the war against global terrorism. On the contrary, to stand fast for Israel’s wholeness will only further strengthen that war.[more]
