President George W. Bush
The White House,
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Dear Mr. President:
Speaking for close to 1000 Orthodox rabbis throughout North America, members of the Rabbinical Council of America, we write to thank and commend you and your administration, for your support of the embattled State of Israel in recent days.
As a sovereign State, Israel has every right, and duty, to protect its citizens from the murderous onslaughts of Hamas and Hezbollah, that contradict the most fundamental principles of international law.
We have no doubt that the passage of time and future events will prove the justice and righteousness of what you, and Israel, are doing in the face of the murderous and essentially fascistic Islamist terror emanating from Al Qaeda, Iran, Syria, and their Middle Eastern proxies - Hamas and Hezbollah.
We urge you to continue to stand with Israel, our most steadfast and loyal ally and partner in the historic confrontation with the axis of evil that is Islamist terrorism.
May God bless you and grant you success in this sacred mission that you are leading on behalf of civilization and mankind.
Rabbi Dale Polakoff, President
Rabbi Dr. Basil Herring, Executive Vice President
