I understand there were a number of Rabbis who opposed the letter -- where are they? And where is their public disavowal? SPEAK. The should be ashamed that they are being lauded by vicious Muslim Brotherhood groups like Hamas-CAIR.
I received this letter from Lt Col Howard who used to be a frequent contributor to Israpundit and subsequently kept in touch with me.He arranged for this letter to be sent to each rabbi by Dr Laitin. He also wrote, “Ted your contributions are very important for the survival of Israel. I am glad to be able to play a small roll in your efforts.RabbisI have been deeply involved in the Islamic world for more than 30 years. I have taught, advised and mentored more than 1,000 Muslim graduate students in public health, engineering, and economics. I have advised the militaries of Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. I was vice chief of the Lebanon desk. My specialty was Beirut. Several of my former students run the largest newsgathering/news reporting organization in the Islamic world.One of my close associates, very anti-Israel, was just appointed by Pres. Obama as his special representative and chief advisor for Afghanistan and Pakistan and to advise him on negotiations with Iran. From the inside of the administration I observed the very anti-Israel orientation of the president’s principal advisors. My Palestinian authority prime security contact just publicly called for the nuclear annihilation of Israel. One of my senior associates (a retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen.) is also a Holocaust survivor from Lithuania. He emphasizes that when they say they’re going to kill you…. believe them. And I believe that my Palestinian associate who has a position of power within the Fatah government and is well-connected with Hamas believes fully in the annihilation of every Jew on earth.I support Pamela Geller. I agree with the letter written to youDr. Howard Laitin Torrance : California : United States
