My 3rd Reply

3rd March 2012

Dear Senator Feinstein,

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  Chong :

Thank you for writing regarding U.S policy towards Iran.  I appreciate your thoughts on this topic, and welcome the opportunity to respond.

In my capacity as a Unites States Senator I have sought to contribute to efforts to bring peace and stability in the Middle East.  Through this experience I have come to believe that only by bringing to bear the best efforts of diplomacy can real progress be made towards this goal.  I believe the  United States should pursue a robust, diplomatic initiative with Iran on all issues and without pre-conditions.  We should put together a package of carrots and sticks that will serve as the basis for discussion with  Iran, and encourage it to become a peaceful and positive member of the international community.  Please know that I have noted your thoughts, and will continue to keep them in mind as the Senate continues to debate U.S.policy towards Iran.

Again, thank you for writing.  I hope that you will continue to write on matters of importance to you. Should you have any further comments or questions, please feel free to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.  Best regards.

Sincerely yours,

Dianne Feinstein
United States Senator

Dear Senator Dianne Feinstein,

Today is World Harmony Day I have just written to President Obama with the hope that he can stops the Netanyahu government to bombing Iran and let diplomacy succeed because the world cannot afford another war.

My 2nd Reply

10 January 2012

Dear Senator Dianne Feinstein,

Firstly, I thank you for your sincere reply. You are really a beautiful woman and a fair minded one too. How I wish that more of the Jewish people could think like you. Maybe then the Israelis’ and Palestinians’ conflict would have been history a long time ago, and we would not be here crying out for fairness today. I do not know you but when I looked at you on TV, I saw worry on your face and an earnestness to serve. I know you are a very good Senator just by the reply you have written to me.

I am not an intellectual, just an ordinary citizen who loves God with all my heart. No one truly loves me, but I know God loves me very much. This awareness gives me strength and all my life I have anchored onto God’s love to enable me to keep on living in this world.  If you read this article I am sure you know where I come from. http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/my-social-consciousness/

My teacher told us if we listen hard enough, we can hear what God wants us to do. I have intently listened to my inner voice and at the age of 57 years old on 20th January 2012, I feel that God has wanted me to help the Palestinian people to realize their dream of a homeland.

“Even if my marriage is falling apart and my children are unhappy, there is still a part of me that says, “God, this is fascinating!” – Jane Smiley

I am here to serve and not to be served; therefore I am ready to give myself or even sacrifice myself to pursue this cause of opening the eyes of the people and the Government and hoping for wisdom to fill their minds and love for humanity to fill their hearts. We must be proactive and fight back against this so-called Western definition of “progress” as it is based on empty pretence. Our subconscious mind does not deceive or pretend, it simply responds, based upon acceptance.

I, Chong Sun Wah, have always wanted Singapore to achieve a lot, not only for our own people, but for the world as well. But unfortunately our leaders believe we are only a small red dot on the map and so we have been limited in the care we can show for others in the world. My vision of a beautiful world is that every child knows and understands the beauty of all religions. My teacher told us all religions are good and it is important to focus on the essence of God and not who God is. The essence of God is embodied in the love of all humanity and we profess our love for God by striving to be a good human being. Just having this thought we are already a successful person. In order to achieve this kind of spiritual education, the main stream educational system must introduce this knowledge in all schools, even in the religious schools. If this were to happen worldwide, we would no longer be talking about conflicts based on religious differences.

I have tried so hard to get the Singapore government’s attention on this matter but to no avail. We are discouraged from talking about race, religion or politics and to me this is very detrimental to our self development. Our life should not just be about school studies and making money.

I have opened my troubled and painful heart to you because I know you will listen and that you care. I was influenced by my teacher that we all must care and I have never forgotten what she said; “Yes, we must look after ourselves first. Once we have looked after ourselves we should next look after our family. After achieving this aim we should extend ourselves for others. If we want a beautiful world for our children, we all must care enough to make the world right.”

She continued, “We Singaporeans are very blessed that we have Singapore to call our home, look at the poor Palestinians, their land was stolen in broad daylight, right in front of the eyes of the world, and nobody cares about them. And, as long as the world does not care, then one day Palestine will disappear from the map of the world.” I will never forget what she said and perhaps that is one of the reasons that I am who I am today.

I believe that if the political structure in Israel is ever taken over by the fundamentalist groups, we will see more disaster in the years to come. Let us all pray that the day will not come to pass in which the hardliners rule. And therefore, it is of the utmost importance for all of us to put our heads together and ensure a balanced approach that doesn’t overly favor either side, and that will help the Palestinians obtain their homeland during the coming year.

Love, light, peace, harmony and unity,

Sunflower Chong

Dear  Chong :

Thank you for writing to express your views on continued efforts to establish a meaningful and lasting peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.  I welcome the opportunity to hear your perspective on this important issue and to share my views with you.

I greatly appreciate the commitment of the Obama Administration to work with both the Israelis and Palestinians through indirect and direct talks aimed at finding a solution to the dispute based on two states living side by side in peace and security.  Yet, despite our best efforts, a permanent peace agreement remains elusive.  The Israeli settlement moratorium expired and construction has resumed.  The Palestinian Authority refuses to return to direct talks without an extension of the moratorium and has announced its intention to seek recognition of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2011.  Fatah, the party of Palestinian Authority President  Mahmoud   Abbas , has agreed to form a unity government with Hamas, which remains in control of the Gaza Strip and refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

Even in the face of these significant challenges various public and private individuals and groups worldwide continue to offer ideas and solutions in order to bridge the gap on the most intractable issues.  In his May 2011 speech on the Middle East, President Obama stated that the goal of negotiations should be two  states: a secure Israel and a viable, contiguous Palestinian state.  The borders should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps.  And security arrangements should be “robust enough to prevent a resurgence of terrorism, to stop the infiltration of weapons, and to provide effective border security.”  I support this formula as a basis of negotiations, and I strongly believe that direct talks should resume immediately.

At a time when much of our attention is directed towards the Arab Awakening in the Middle East and North Africa and the ongoing war in Afghanistan, a renewed focus on a lasting peace agreement is more important than ever.  I believe that the United States must take a leadership role in working with both parties towards a final peace agreement.  We must commit ourselves to a robust, sustained diplomatic initiative with a constant presence on the ground.

I understand that you have strong opinions on this issue, and please know that I have made note of them.  As the Senate continues to debate our foreign policy in the Middle East, be assured that I will keep your views in mind.

Again, thank you for writing.  I hope that you will continue to write on matters of importance to you.  Should you have any further comments or questions, please feel free to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.  Best regards.

May I wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season.

My Reply

21 December 2011

Dear Senator Dianne Feinstein,

May I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. With your support and that of your fellow senators, may the New Year bring great hope and joy to the Palestinian people and the realization of their wish of a homeland in Palestine.

Thank you so much for your reply. It may appear that I am one sided in regards to the Israelis’ and Palestinians’ conflict, but I would like to briefly explain why I am not. You see, I am talking about fairness not favoritism. And in the case of this terrible situation, the Israelis have succeeded in bullying many nations, and especially, the US, into favoring their position over that of the Palestinians. There is a very limited faction attacking Israel, but the Israelis have made it seem like it is the entire population of Gaza, and that is not fair or reasonable.

I, Chong Sun Wah, have no fear of retaliation from anyone when I speak out loudly on the Palestinians side, because I want the Palestinians treated fairly. I hold my opinion with conviction and a strong belief that was ingrained in me by my teacher; that the world needs to care about the Palestinian people, for if we do not, they are history in this universe. She said that the only hope for the Palestinian people to have their homeland is when the world rises up to call for support of a Palestinian homeland just as the world supported protecting the Jews in 1948 after the Holocaust.

It seems like we are not allowed to talk of the Palestinians’ suffering but only of the Jews. My teacher said the British were the greatest culprit. When the British left Palestine, they also left behind a whole mess and many thorny issues that until the present day are still unresolved. As time has gone by, the Palestinians have lost even more land than the 45% originally allotted to them by the British because the American government has not been a fair broker. It seems to me that it is the American government that is one sided and not me. Between the favored treatment of Israel by the US government and the media control that the Jewish people hold in the US, it seems very unlikely that the Palestinians will ever get fair treatment unless some of us in the world stand up and speak for them. It is not one sided, it is simply trying to balance the equation for these poor people.

I think many of us wonder how it could that happen in this time and era that the Jews still wield such power and control. Because of this petition, two of my friends from America got their whole heads shaving creamed by 7 fierce Jewish women opposing the petition. They were told that if they didn’t stop promoting the petition, worse would happen to them and the Jewish women threatened to shave one lady’s head bald. These types of humiliation tactics and intimidation are an example of why I am promoting a fairer view for the Palestinians and a more realistic view of the bullying tactics of the Jews. Besides this, I got a reply from one person that said the petition letter that I sent out was disgusting. My worst shock came with the removal of all the e-mail addresses from their site. http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/aom-i-was-totally-shocked/

Every country is fearful of America, and in America, the Jews are very powerful and influential. What hope is there for the Palestinians to get their homeland back? An America wrote to me, “I think you have said this in a very good way….and I can tell you that many Americans are (secretly) getting very upset with Israel….just yesterday, Leon Panetta said he was very frustrated because the Israelis will not even sit down at the negotiating table…they want everything their way or they won’t even talk! But everyone is afraid to say anything and the conservatives are criticizing President Obama because he does not bow down to Mr. Netanyahu, and in fact, doesn’t like him or his Israeli arrogance. It’s a really tough situation. Anyway, you are trying!”

I have written a long letter to Senator Bennet http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/2011/12/17/senator-michael-bennet/ I have opened my heart to him and I know he will understand where I am coming from. I pray my words have touched his heart and that they will inspire him to do more for the Palestinian people.

Instead of just arguing who is right or wrong, we need to elevate justice in our world by focusing on universal spiritual education, recognizing the beauty of all religions and promoting the understanding of shared human values worldwide.

After September 11th, this group of people submitted a proposal entitled ‘Community’ to President George Bush, but no action was taken. On the other side of the world, I believe it is time to look into universal spiritual education; my conscience propels me to call for World Harmony Day www.worldharmonyday.com

President Obama has been criticized for this proposal.  However, I support it as a basis of negotiations, and believe that it should not hinder the immediate resumption of direct talks.  The President has simply stated what many over the years have thought the outlines of an agreement would be.  Specifically, this formula was the basis for the 2000 Camp David negotiations and the negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority at  Taba in 2001.  It was also the basis for the 2008 negotiations between President  Abbas and former Prime Minister Ehud  Olmert .  By using this formula – 1967 borders with land swaps – Israel would still be able to hold on to most of the settlements in the West Bank.

I understand that you have strong opinions on this issue, and please know that I have made note of them.  I believe that the United States must commit to a robust, sustained diplomatic initiative with a constant presence on the ground, and I will continue to work in the Senate to achieve this goal.  As Congress continues to debate our foreign policy in the Middle East, be assured that I will keep your views in mind.

Dear Senator Dianne Feinstein,

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,
