ultimately set up a puppet
government. U.S. policy
makers always prefer war to
political settlements."
And finally, Dr. Abraham
believes the world has a
double standard when it
comes to violence against
Arab nations.
"When Israel invaded and
occupied Lebanon in 1978
and again in 1982, there was
not a whimper about it," he
said. "When they annexed
the Golan Heights and east
Jerusalem, and occupied the
West Bank and Gaza Strip,
there was no world outcry.
"It's OK to kill dark-
skinned peoples, especially
in the name of a noble cause
like stopping Saddam Hus-
sein, the bully of the neigh-
borhood, the new Hitler of
the Middle East.
"If the United States is
willing to invade Kuwait,
they should be willing to in-
vade Tel Aviv. They too are
guilty of aggression," Dr.
Abraham said. John O'Neil,
who writes for the Zionist
Viewpoint, a publication of
the Zionist Federation, and
works for the Criminal
Justice Department of
Wayne County, refused to
give credence to Dr. Abra-
ham's charges of racism and
said the Persian Gulf war
was based on merit.
"The evil of Saddam Hus-
sein is unparalleled in the
Middle East, except for
maybe Hafez al-Assad of
Syria," said Mr. O'Neil, who
is Roman Catholic.
He said Saddam Hussein is
heir to the same anti-Israel
philosophy of Gamal Abdul
Nasser, former president of
Egypt.
"In 1958, Syria withdrew
from the United Arab Re-
public because her leaders
thought that Nasser wasn't
serious enough about
destroying Israel," Mr.
O'Neil said. "Israel is still
surrounded by an Islamic
world determined to destroy
her."
Mr. O'Neil said the best
evidence he can think of are
the followers of Saddam
Hussein. Palestinians
cheered on the Iraqi Scud
missiles.
But Palestinians were not
the only ones to support
Saddam Hussein, Mr. O'Neil
said.
"We too have sins on all
our souls," he said. "The
United States dealt with
him (Saddam) for decades. So
did numerous other Euro-
pean nations. These are
ironies we, as Americans,
shouldn't sleep well with.
"And this is all the more
reason Israel can't afford to
subject herself to an interna-

tional or regional peace con-
ference, or to her would-be
destroyers," he said.
"There's absolutely no
reason to believe Israel
would receive equality."
Prospects for peace are
slim, according to Mr.
O'Neil.
"It may only occur when
individual Arab states ap-
proach Israel. The onus is on
the Arab states," he said.
"Israel made peaceful over-
tures in 1947, 1948 and
again in 1967. And on each
occasion, it was Arab
nations who went to war
with Israel."
Mr. O'Neil, who also
writes book reviews for the

"We too have sins
on all our souls.
The United States
dealt with Saddam
for decades. So did
numerous other
European nations?'

Detroit News, said he does
not affiliate himself with
Christian Zionist groups be-
cause he thinks they have a
hidden agenda.
"I've never quite bought
into the philosophy of Chris-
tian Zionists," he said."
While Christian Zionists
believe Jews should have the
State of Israel, they also
believe that such a reality is
necessary if Jesus Christ is
to be ultimately accepted as
their savior.
While Bishop McGehee,
the chairperson for Epis-
copals Concerned for Israel
and Palestine, supported the
war in the Gulf, he said that
as a Christian he cannot ac-
cept violence as a viable
solution.
Bishop McGehee, who
spent four years in military
college and four years in the
U.S. combat engineers dur-
ing World War II, today sup-
ports pacifists.
"War, as a method of settl-
ing international disputes, is
incompatible with the
teachings of Jesus Christ,"
he said. "The use of modern
technological warfare is a
prostitution of God's gifts." ❑
