Subject: The Road Map.
Andrea Anderson, in her excellent Commentary on the Road Map, on May
28, tells it as it is. Why does an illegal Israeli occupation ,which has been
allowed to stand for 36 years, in defiance of international law and repeated
Security Council resolutions, require further three years of negotiations and
haggling? When Saddam Hussein illegally occupied Kuwait, no one said let
the Kuwaitis negotiate with Saddam about withdrawal from 40% or 90% of occupied
If Bush and Blair cared for international law or the UN Charter, they
would demand immediate and complete unconditional
Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and
the Gaza Strip, so that the Palestinian people can practice their legitmate
right of self determination and the refugees inalienable right of
return to their homes, in compliance with the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights and
repeated UN resolutions.
How long must Israel be allowed to remain above international
