The Rabbinical Congress for Peace which comprises over 350 of the most prominent rabbis in Israel have sent a message to Governor Mitt Romney lauding him for his common sense remarks made in a released video last week. The rabbis wrote to Mr. Romney that his remarks reflect the Torah view as delineated in the Jewish Code of Law Chap. 329. In the video, Governor Romney is heard saying:
“… the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish….I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes. Some might say, well, just let the Palestinians have the West Bank and have security, and set up a separate nation for the Palestinians. And then come a couple of thorny questions, the border between Israel and the West Bank is obviously right there, right next to Tel Aviv, which is the financial capital, the industrial capital of Israel, the center of Israel. It’s, what, the border would be seven miles from Tel Aviv to what would be the West Bank. Nine miles. The challenge is, the other side of the West Bank, the other side of what would be this new Palestinian state would either be Syria at one point or Jordan. And of course, the Iranians would want to do through the West Bank exactly what they did through Lebanon, and what they did into Gaza. Which is the Iranians would want to bring missiles, that armament, into the West Bank and potentially threaten Israel… the Palestinians are committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel.”
“Your words,” write the Rabbis to Romney, “represent a realistic approach that a Palestinian state would harm Israel and American interests as well. Your remarks demonstrate a true sober perception which finally removes the smokescreen over the illusionary land for peace formula that has proven to be an exercise in futility.”
