Letter to Jewish Press "Israel Talking with Hamas"

This week's Friday May 23rd 2008,  front page cover of Jewish press is "Israel Talking With Hamas ...."  
This article quoted Chaim Ramon, the Deputy Prime Minister,  who is critical and frustrated with such unauthorized talks with Hamas. 
Yet nothing  is really being presented to Jewish Press readers regarding objections to  Israel's more moderate "peace partner" Fatah,  especially in an issue that widely reports on President Bush's visit to Israel. 
How is it that the major Jewish organizations, Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah, Agudath Yisroel of America, OU, YI, Chabad Headquarters are all silent regarding the administration "Land for Peace" to be implemented by a "Two State Solution" with a peace partner that are proud of their ancestry, partners with Hitler Yemach Shemo?   
Many Christian groups are quite vocal.  They do not only condemn the Palestinian Jihadists but go the full stretch and forcefully speak out regarding G-d's Covenant promises to Israel. 
Herbert Zweibon, chairman of Americans for a Safe Israel writes, in the front page article   May 2008 Issue Outpost an AFSI publication:
A "Resolution regarding Israel from Pro-Israel Christian Leaders" signed by over a thousand Christian leaders and urging a new U.S. policy toward Israel is being submitted to Senator John McCain.  In this resolution , these Christian Leaders write "RESOLVED.  That the administration's "Roadmap to Peace"  with its "Land for Peace" and "Two-State Solution" be deemed unworkable and allowed to lapse; and be it further
RESOLVED, that a serious and engaged consideration be given to a new US/Israel policy that would be comprehensive and practical in dealing with the realities on the ground as well as honoring G-d's covenant promises to Israel. 
I spoke to Avi Shafran of Agudath Yisroel of America and told him about this signed resolution of Pro Israel Christian leaders.  I asked him " isn't it  embarrassing that the Christians speak up regarding honoring G-d's covenant promises to Israel and we don't?" Without even wanting to look at this resolution, Avi Shafran told me that they don't really support what the Christians write and they don't write to candidates.  I told him that it's not what the Christians write but it's what the Torah writes. He told me that I can have my opinion but they see things differently.  End of Discussion.
The Jewish Press does  not promote honoring G-d's Covenant promises with Israel.  On the other hand they do provide extensive glowing coverage of President Bush's trip to Israel.
Why is it that the Jewish Press puts an adaptation of President Bush's address  to the Knesset on May 15th, which was truly captivating rhetoric, on the front page, and has a  prominent page 3 article headlined "Bush enjoys Love Fest in Israel" without highlighting that Bush's "Roadmap to Peace" has made FATAH a peace partner.  Wouldn't it be newsworthy to show how such negotiations do not honor G-d's Covenant promises to Israel? 
Doesn't  lavish gushy coverage of Bush's trip to Israel provide legitimacy to the Peace Process, and gives the impression that it is widely endorsed by the Jewish Community?
I suppose it is not news worthy to publish FATAH's platform in a prominent place in the paper.  Why not quote Itamar Marcus Palestinian Media Watch so that the readers can clearly see with whom President Bush has found a working peace partner.  Some of your chareidi readership do not go on the internet because it is banned,  so how will they be made aware of such important information. 
Ruth Matar writes in a widely circulated letter via email to President Bush:
We cannot hide from ourselves the fact that Mahmoud Abbas, who you are promoting as Prime Minister of this new theoretical Arab State, is a former well known terrorist who co-founded the PLO together with Yasser Arafat. We must also face the fact that his terrorist Fatah Organization has murdered many more Jews than even Hamas! To this day, Abbas denies that there ever was a Holocaust, a view shared by Iran's President, Ahmedinejad.
We must keep in mind Mahmoud Abbas' educational background. He graduated from the University of Damascus, Syria, and subsequently earned his Ph.D degree at the Institute of Oriental Studies in Moscow. Both these institutions are known for their hatred of Israel. Abbas' thesis was, in fact, about Holocaust denial. His dissertation was entitled: "The Secret Connection between the Nazis and the Leaders of the Zionist Movement".
Abu Daoud was one of the terrorists intimately involved in the planning of the Munich Massacre of Israeli athletes in the 1972 Olympics. Daoud alleged in his autobiography that Mahmoud Abbas was the main paymaster behind the attack.
Mr. President, do you really plan for this terrorist to be Israel's peace partner?
I suppose it is not news worthy of the Jewish Press to quote on its front page portions of the Torah that reference G-d's covenant promises to Avraham, Yitzchok, Yaakov, Moshe and Yehoshua or the references in Tanach of the boundaries of Eretz Yisroel that is delineated in tthe Bris Bein Habesarim or in Parshat Masei.  No. These are not items that are very newsworthy.  But it's not only the Jewish Press that are selective in what they chose to print.  I haven't seen much of similar Torah coverage in any other major orthodox Jewish newspaper as well.  I will be happy to be corrected on this matter. 
 Why burst a bubble, our hopes and dreams for everlasting peace with quotes from Chumash?

 A U.S. soldier surveys a German concentration camp

It is a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead. 
 He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the track of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'
'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing'

This week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offended' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. 

This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it. 
These photos were taken in Germany by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.
