In his letter of February 4, “CU body did the right thing“, Michael Rabb seems to be all giddy that the CU students rejected support of Israel, the one nation in that area friendly to the US, in favor of the fanatically hostile Palestinians. They’re the people who chose as their leadership the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, and are dedicated to the annihilation of Israel. They’re the same Palestinians who, given the Gaza Strip in 2005 without preconditions, began immediately exploiting their new strategic position with random shelling and rocket attacks on surrounding Israeli towns, which has continued since.
The CU sympathizers condemn Israeli occupation of the West Bank, forgetting that it began in ’67, after Syria, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon amassed their armies along the Israeli border to carry out their annihilistic threats. But these aggressors were defeated by Israel alone in six days! After Israel subsequently gave back the captured Sanai for a peace agreement with Egypt, the Palestinians rejected every peaceful offer to trade land for peace with Israel, opting instead for continued terrorism at every turn. Yet it is the Israelis who are condemned for maintaining control of the West Bank for their own protection from their actively hostile neighbors?
Admittedly, the CU student support of Israel, or lack thereof, is a meaningless gesture and of little concern to Israel. So what if the CU students choose to support the terrorist side for their “human rights and social justice” concerns? I wonder how long it will be before there are similar sympathizer groups supporting the poor Taliban in Afghanistan or Hezbollah in Lebanon, or others of the numerous terrorist organizations openly dedicated to the extermination of Israel?
