Open Letter to Americans

By Paul J. Balles

Dear Americans:

Zionism as it is practiced under Sharon can be likened to an organized crime syndicate. Why are Americans sending billions to Israel?

Do you know that American policy toward Israel--and its taxpayers' billions of dollars of support to Israel--supports the killing and maiming of Palestinians, the destruction of their property, their deprivation, their imposed poverty, the theft of their water rights, the Apartheid Wall and the suicide bombers?

Do you wonder how America supports the suicide bombers? When an entire people are overpowered, tortured, repressed, subjugated and subdued beyond hope, with America standing on the sidelines applauding and paying for it while Europe turns its head away, what do you expect the people to do?

They can't cry. They have no tears left. They can't fight tanks and Apache helicopters and F-16s with stones! If they fire a rocket that hits no one, the source of the rocket will be destroyed anyway. Firing rockets against Israelis with the latest American military detection equipment amounts to suicide with no results.

The suicide bombers who sacrifice themselves in a weak attempt at resistance are actually creations of Israel and America. Thanks again to the billions of dollars Americans cough up each year for their endowment.

Don't ever again ask why. Ask fellow Americans when you're going to put a stop to America's long-distance support for a Mafioso of Zionist hit men.

When are you going to insist that the president and his men--Cheney, Wolfowitz, Perle, Wurmser, Feith, Cohen (all closer to Israel than they are to America) get prosecuted as members of an organized crime syndicate? Make no mistake: Zionism in America is organized crime!

When will you stop electing Senators and Representatives to Congress who can't resist the lure of Zionist support? They're nothing more than legislators who embrace the same organized crime syndicate.

When will you stop reading what's written and published by the New York Times, the Washington Post and US News? When will you stop being influenced by the broadcasts of the Murdoch empire and Fox News?

When will you stop supporting organized Zionist crime and take America back from Israel for Americans?
