I join with the 400,000 members of the Simon Wiesenthal Center to urge you to make the dismantling of the Palestinian terrorist infrastructure the first pre-requisite of the "roadmap to peace" in the Middle East.

These terrorist groups, who are committed to the destruction of the State of Israel and the murder of innocent men, women, and children, operate a terrorist infrastructure freely under the rule of the Palestinian Authority. They are allowed to act with impunity throughout the areas under the jurisdiction of the P.A.

Despite your best efforts to promote a peaceful solution to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, the infrastructure of terrorism, which constitutes the backbone of the culture of hate and death that threatens to destroy any hope for peaceful co-existence, must be completely dismantled before the “roadmap to peace” can proceed. Otherwise any such discussions would be doomed to failure.
Let our voice be heard!
