PRESIDENT BUSH,
CREATING A PALESTINIIIN ARAB STATE
MEANS CREATING A NEW TERRORIST STATE

THAT's WHY 2 OUT OF 3 ISRAELIS OPPOSE IT. *

In his June 24, 2002 speech, President Bush spelled out specific conditions
that the Palestinian Arabs must fulfill before the U.S. will support giving them a state.
Here's what happened since:

BUSH'S CONDITION: They must "engage in a sustained fight against the
terrorists and dismantle their infrastructure."

THE PALESTINIAN ARABS' RECORD: They haven't arrested terrorists, outlawed
terror groups, shut down bomb factories, or confiscated the terrorists' tens of thousands
of weapons. The Palestinian Authority (PA) itself regularly ()Triers, pays for; and glorifies
the murders of Israelis.

BUSH'S CONDITION: They must "end 'incitement to violence in official media
and publicly denounce homicide bombings."

THE PALESTINIAN ARABS' RECORD: The RA promotes a culture of anti-Jewish and
anti-American hatred in its media schools, summer camps, officials' speeches, and
SC1111011S by PA-appointed clergymen.

BUSH'S CONDITION: They must "elect new leaders, leaders not corn-
promised by terror."

THE PALESTINIAN ARABS' RECORD: Yasir Arafat and other arch-terrorists are still
the leaders of the PA, and the "new" cabinet Arafat recently appointed consists almost
entirely of his previous cabinet ministers.

BUSH'S CONDITION: They must "build a practicing democracy based on
tolerance and liberty."

THE PALESTINIAN ARABS' RECORD: Newspapers that dissent from Arafat's line
are suppressed ... Women are treated as second-class citizens ...Christians are
persecuted and pressured to emigrate ... Jewish holy sites are desecrated.

Mr. President, please don't ignore the Palestinian Arabs' record of violating your conditions. Giving the Palestinian Arabs a sovereign
state will only strengthen their underlying culture of hatred and violence. It will enable them to bring in troops and advanced weaponry
from Iran,. Iraq, and other terror regimes, as well as shoulder-launched missiles --like the ones recently fired at an Israeli airplane in
Kenya--which will threaten every plane taking off from Israel's airports.
Remember: Iraq, Syria, and Libya were given sovereignty. That didn't turn them into peace-loving nations.
