Dear Howard Rieger, Joseph Kanfer, Malcolm Hoenlein, June Walker, John Ruskay, Russell Robinson and Ronald Lauder.

We must take the consequences of our actions or inactions.  All of you are major players in Major Jewish Mainstream organizations that supported the gov't of Israel's policies of the disengagement in your official job capacity. 

Now, you must own up to your decision to support the gov't of Israel's policy and deal with the negative consequences of the Disengagement from the Gaza Strip.  It is highly immoral to simply walk away now. . 

Demand that the gov't of Israel deliver on its promise to a solution for every individual of Gush Katif.  Demand that every debt to pay off a personal mortgage or business loan be taken over by the gov't or your organization.  Forcing the expellees to pay for the loans and mortgages on their property and businesses that was destroyed by the gov't is despicable.

Then demand permanent housing for these wandering Jews and significant assistance to these Jews. 

Finally speak out loud and clear when the gov't acts in the same manner evicting innocent families from their homes in Judea and Samaria for no other apparent purpose than to appease our enemy or to please American Foreign Policy.

Isn't it glaring to you that the Disengagement has compromised Israel's National Security with Kassam rockets and mortars reaching population centers in Sderot and Ashkelon.  As representing the Jewish voice, it is your obligation to express your dismay publicly and denounce the "peace talks" and "land for peace" as being nothing more than a catalyst to the increase of terror and aggression and antisemitism not only in Israel but throughout the world.
