In Defense from page 33

led by then-Undersecretary of
State Karen Hughes.
Because of my public criti-
cisms of Israeli government
policies related to the occupa-
tion, I also was labeled as anti-
Semitic. When Ambassador
Daniel Kurtzer, an Orthodox Jew,
and Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton criticized the
occupation, they were labeled
The biggest weapon of the
detractors? On 9-11, just hours
after the horrific terrorist attacks,
I was interviewed on a local radio
show in Los Angeles right after a
guest "expert" stated that Islam
was the prime suspect. In react-
ing to that awful stereotype, I
made a mistake. I said that if we
were going to look for suspects,
then we should also put Israel on
the list. It was wrong and I apolo-
gized for it on the same radio
show the very next day as well as
directly to Jewish leaders. It is a
shame that people today continue
to exploit that mistake and do
not want to accept my apology.
What detractors of the peace
process want to do is their busi-
ness, but the future belongs to
those who want to engender
hope for America, especially for
the crucial role it can play in the
Middle East. What the J Street
conference represents is a defin-
ing moment.
I aim to follow the following
Koranic verse in dealing with
hostilities, both here and abroad:
"Good and evil are not equal. So
repel evil with good and the one
with whom you have enmity will
become a close friend."
Far too often, we find ourselves
in the position of calling for
cease-fires in the Middle East.
It's high time we call for one now,
in the United States, so that we
can move on with the important
business of working together
to explore possibilities that can
secure our shared future. LI
