The Zionist Conspiracy
Tuesday, March 23, 2004
The following are excepts from a letter by a leader of a Middle East group that appears in today's Arab News:
The assassination of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, with its accompanying killing of passers-by, is a mad, provocative act by a government which has lost all restraint...
Prime Minister Sharon's talk of "withdrawal from Gaza", which had caught the headlines in the past months, is now revealed to be no more than meaningless chatter. Far from seriously intending to evacuate even a bit of occupied territory, this bankrupt prime minister - faced with police investigations into a myriad of corruption concerning himself and his sons - seems determined to bequeath to his country a legacy of eternal war with the Palestinians and the entire Arab and Muslim World. Every day that this man remains in power poses a grave danger to the future of Israelis and Palestinians alike.
[We call] upon all sane and responsible forces left in the international community to intervene, urgently and forcefully, to save our region at the edge of the abyss and halt the monstrous cycle of bloodshed which now threatens to engulf us.
The letter was written by Adam Keller of Gush Shalom, a fringe left-wing group in Israel.
Abdel Aziz Rantisi has replaced Yassin as the head of Hamas in Gaza. Perhaps Keller would like to found Hamas' Tel Aviv branch.
