My 2nd Reply

18th March 2012

Senator Corker,

Thank you so much for your reply. I share the same sentiments as Sean Stone and salute his courage. He is a child of God, he seeks the truth and he will get it because the silent majority will slowly muster the courage to follow his footsteps to stop the bombing of Tehran. Stone on O’Reilly show also predicted that an Occupy Tehran movement akin to Occupy Wall Street is on its way, and he suggested that President Jimmy Carter be enlisted to help solve the problems in Middle East. I hope Hollywood and your good self would also support this cause for a better and brighter world.

America must not rush into any military decision like what they had done in Iraq because regret will be too late. George Bush Jr was tricked by the ‘Jewish Hawks’ who had told him that Iraq got Weapons of Mass Destruction and he went in without thinking of the consequences. The end result as we all had witnessed was a total disaster and especially for America!! The experience in Iraq had shown to the Americans that they need to have a rational mind. Please read what Robert Bird got to say on the preemptive strike on Iraq and I have taken the end paragraphs for your reading, http://www.worldharmonyday.com/news_us-iraq_3robert.php

“As if that were not bad enough, members of Congress are reluctant to ask questions which are begging to be asked. How long will we occupy Iraq? We have already heard disputes on the numbers of troops, which will be needed to retain order. What is the truth? How costly will the occupation and rebuilding be? No one has given a straight answer. How will we afford this long-term massive commitment, fight terrorism at home, address a serious crisis in domestic healthcare, afford behemoth military spending and give away billions in tax cuts amidst a deficit, which has climbed to over $340 billion for this year alone? If the President’s tax cut passes it will be $400 billion. We cower in the shadows while false statements proliferate. We accept soft answers and shaky explanations because to demand the truth is hard, or unpopular, or may be politically costly.

But, I contend that, through it all, the people know.

The American people unfortunately are used to political shading, spin, and the usual chicanery they hear from public officials. They patiently tolerate it up to a point. But there is a line. It may seem to be drawn in invisible ink for a time, but eventually it will appear in dark colors, tinged with anger.

When it comes to shedding American blood – – when it comes to wrecking havoc on civilians, on innocent men, women, and children, callous dissembling is not acceptable. Nothing is worth that kind of lie – – not oil, not revenge, not re-election, not somebody’s grand pipedream of a democratic domino theory.

And mark my words, the calculated intimidation, which we see so often of late by the “powers that be” will only keep the loyal opposition quiet for just so long.

Because eventually, like it always does, the truth will emerge. And when it does, this house of cards, built of deceit, will fall.”

How high the cost America got to pay but on the other hand Israel came out without a scratch because they achieved their goal to get others to do their dirty work to bomb Iraq and one more less threat for them. Now they want history to repeat again because this time Iran is the threat. If you look at the Iraq war it looked kind of silly for America because the rest of the world are doing so well financially while you were and still are trying to keep the world safe and meanwhile America is going downhill besides so many deaths of young soldiers. Ask yourself IS IT WORTH IT? If America is to go down it should go down on its own term but not again to let others pull America down due to their insecurity and fear.

In an interview on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, this was what Mr Brzezinski said, “We don’t need to go to war and we have to make that very clear to our Israeli friends. We’re not going to go to war. They’re not going to go to war by flying over our airspace over Iraq. We’re not going to support them. If they do it, they will be on their own. The consequences will be theirs, because the price we’ll all pay if they start a massive war, which the Iranians interpret as being done with our connivance, will be disastrous for us in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in the terms of oil, stability in the Middle East more generally.”

The Israelis and Palestinians is the root cause to this world problem, thus the world would need to fix this problem first before the rest can be resolved. As long as America and the world delay the act of helping the Palestinian people to have a homeland,  the world will not have peace, harmony and unity. Senator Klobuchar said, “Compelling Iran to abandon its support for terrorism, promote the rights of its citizens, and terminate its nuclear enrichment program is critical to meeting the goal of long-term stability in the Middle East and around the world.” I don’t think this is the way the world sees it because as long as the Palestinian people still do not have a homeland,  the prospects of  long term stability in Middle East and around the world will remain bleak.

Love, light, peace, harmony and unity,

Sunflower Chong

Dear Ms. Sun Wah,

Thank you for taking the time to contact my office about Iran. Your input is important to me, and I appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts.

As you know, Iran has aggressively pursued nuclear weapons capabilities and has denied international observers and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) monitors access to certain elements of its program to ensure that it is not producing nuclear weapons. This, in addition to threats to close and mine the Strait of Hormuz, has increased regional and international political and economic turmoil.

Although Iran has not abandoned its illicit nuclear program, there is evidence that the country is beginning to feel the squeeze of sanctions, the most recent of which I supported, and was included in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. This bill increased sanctions on the Central Bank of Iran and was signed into law on December 31, 2011. Over the last year, streams of international firms have announced their exit from the Iranian market. As a result, US officials say that in 2011, Iran lost close to $60 billion in investments and that sanctions may deprive Iran of nearly $14 billion in oil revenue from 2011 to 2016.

Congress may soon consider a measure to further increase sanctions on Iran. S. 2101, the Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Human Rights Act of 2012 seeks to enhance, and expand current U.S. sanctions on Iran by striking at Iran’s energy sector, human rights violations, and other portions of the Iranian economy and government. When this bill came before me in the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, I voted in favor of it. In addition, I recently sent a letter to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry calling for comprehensive hearings on our policy towards Iran. With officials from Department of State, Department of Defense and intelligence community, I hope that these hearings will bring about a long term strategy for stability in the region.

Thank you again for your letter. I hope you will continue to share your thoughts with me throughout the course of my term.

Sincerely,

Bob Corker
United States Senator

Dear Senator Bob Corker,

I am so happy to receive your letter because I thought there would not be anymore response from the senators but in fact I was wrong because I received one from Senator Rand Paul after you gave me a reply.  To date I have 23 senators written to me. To read my responses, please see: http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/

You said, “In essence, both sides need to decide which primary issues are the most important to reconcile, and ultimately come to a comprehensive and favorable solution for all of those involved. Both groups deserve to live in peace and harmony, and it is in the interest of the U.S. to encourage their reconciliation.”

I hope to get your support on how we can break the status quo? I strongly believe America has no choice but to put forward a vital proposal to make this breakthrough,

EITHER JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF PALESTINE AND NO RIGHT OF RETURN FOR THE PALESTINIANS

OR

AN ISRAELI JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL AND THE RIGHT OF RETURN FOR ALL THE PALESTINIANS WITH FULL COMPENSATION SINCE 1948

These are the sticking points and once we make this breakthrough, the rest will be easy to resolve.

From a people with no land they have already got 78% of the land and yet the Netanyahu government is not satisfied and want more. In 1948 the Jews went to the United Nation to claim 55% of the disputed land. Their insecurity justified them to take more from the Palestinians and they did by taking another 23% of the land when finally in 1993 Yitzhak Rabin said enough is enough and signed the peace agreement in Oslo to give 22% of the land to the Palestinians. This mean he felt this 1967 border will keep Israel secure, right? But Netanyahu said he needs to build more settlements over the 1967 borders to feel completely safe from the Palestinians.

This was what Mr Alon Ben-Meir had written, “Netanyahu has repeatedly claimed that Israel cannot accept “indefensible borders,” based on the 1967 lines. He highlights that Israel would be only nine miles wide if it were to relinquish its territory in the West Bank. However, this security argument is undermined by the reality that for any agreement to be reached, Israel will have to relinquish land.

Unless Netanyahu claims that a 12- or 15- mile width is more “defensible” with today’s missile technology than a nine-mile width, it is difficult to comprehend what Netanyahu’s “defensible borders” look like without a continued, substantial Israeli military presence in the West Bank.

If the dispute over settlements was solely based on security or political issues, it could be reconciled through good-faith negotiations.” http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/israel-greatest-creation/

Now Netanyahu said Israel is a thumbnail and to protect themselves from the vast Arab nations they got to take more land like another 12% before they can feel secure. How much more land do you think Netanyahu wants to actually feel he can protect his people? From our observation maybe the whole of Palestine and I will say ok and let’s Declare Palestine A Democratic country just like South Africa. What do you think?

Love, light, peace, harmony and unity,

Sunflower Chong

Dear Ms. Sun Wah,

Thank you for contacting my office regarding your concerns about the elimination of U.S. funds to support the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Your input is important to me and I appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts.

As you suggested, it is against U.S. law to provide assistance to any U.N. agency that recognizes any group that does not have the internationally recognized attributes of statehood.  Consequently, the U.S. cut off funds to UNESCO as a result of its extension of membership to Palestine. I appreciate your suggestion that this law should be repealed.  I can assure you, the insight you have provided in your letter will certainly help my staff and me more effectively consider this issue should relevant legislation be voted on in the Senate, and I thank you for your input.

With regard to the Israel-Palestinian peace process, I strongly believe it is in the interests of U.S. and regional security to press Israel and the Palestinians to engage in serious negotiations for a lasting peace. That said, I have serious concerns about efforts by the Palestinians to unilaterally seek international state recognition. For this reason, I decided to cosponsor S.Res.185, a resolution expressing opposition to any such efforts by the Palestinians through the United Nations outside of negotiations with Israel. In essence, both sides need to decide which primary issues are the most important to reconcile, and ultimately come to a comprehensive and favorable solution for all of those involved. Both groups deserve to live in peace and harmony, and it is in the interest of the U.S. to encourage their reconciliation.

Thank you again for your letter. I hope you will continue to share your thoughts with me throughout the course of my term.

Sincerely,

Dear Senator Bob Corker,

I hope to get your support for this Petition for a Palestinian State.

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/call-for-support-for-a-palestinian-state.html#sign

The success of the “Arab Spring” tells us that a “Global Spring” is possible to achieve, too. And it can begin with nothing more than a click of your mouse supporting our petition. The Palestinian people need our support now more than ever, for a “Global Spring” to finally achieve a homeland for their people. To build a better world, everyone must care. We must have the strong faith that we can build a better world for all.

On behalf of the Palestinian people, I thank you all very much for your support. Please spread the word.

Love, light, peace, harmony and unity,

Sunflower Chong
