Attention: President Bush.
Dear Mr. President,
It has come to my notice and to Jews everywhere that the US is boycotting the capital city of Israel and US ambassadors are not participating in the forthcoming celebrations of Jerusalem Day.
It seems that your eternal declarations of friendship and support for your most trustworthy ally in the Middle East are not sounding very genuine!
Jerusalem may be holy to many religions but it is central only to one! It is our eternal spiritual capital of the Jewish people all over the world. Only Israel and our people will cherish and safeguard it forever for all religions! We celebrate with the brave Israelis who finally returned this ancient capital to its former rightful sovereignty. "Jerusalem of gold" shines again for the first time in two millennia!
What is making the mighty USA so fearful? Why act contrary to US law as enacted by your Congress?
Expediency rather than principle?
I think that I can speak for most Jews around the world that we consider this to be an insult not only to Israel but also to all of us.
MM, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA.
