Dear Senator Toomey,

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 contacting me about U.S. relations with Iran. I appreciate hearing from you.

Through its pursuit of nuclear weapons, Iran continues to pose one of the gravest threats to the U.S. and our allies. Additionally, the Iranian regime is a destabilizing force in the Middle East through its support of terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas. I am particularly concerned by the threat that Iran poses to Israel. As you probably know, Iranian President Ahmadinejad has made repeated statements calling for Israel’s destruction.

I strongly support the use of multiple foreign policy tools to compel the Iranian regime to abandon its quest for nuclear weapons and to transition Iran from a nation that sows regional conflict and repression to one that fosters peace and human rights. These tools include diplomacy to the extent that it is possible given the Iranian regime’s uncooperative attitude and determination to pursue nuclear weapons.

While we should not take the military option off the table, in the near term I also support the strongest possible sanctions on Iran as well as on institutions that violate our Iran sanction laws. Please be assured that I value your input and will keep your concerns in mind as I continue working with my colleagues on this important issue.

Thank you again for your correspondence. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance.

Sincerely,

Pat Toomey
U.S. Senator, Pennsylvania

Dear Senator Toomey,

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.

Thanks for all your support.

Dear Senator Pat Toomey,

May I wish you and your family 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.

You said, “A Palestinian state should only be created through negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.  To the extent necessary, the U.S. should also play a strong role in those negotiations. It is for these reasons that I cosponsored S. Res. 185, which passed unanimously in the Senate on June 28, 2011. As you may know, S. Res. 185 calls on the Obama administration to lead opposition to unilateral Palestinian statehood efforts and threatens a major change in U.S. relations with the Palestinian Authority if it includes an unreformed Hamas, including a suspension of aid.”

If only America could be a fair broker, but reality tells us otherwise. As you know the American government is withholding $65 million in funding to Unesco because of the Unesco’s recognition of the Palestinians. Bravo, you have succeeded in achieving the aim of intimidating anyone who recognizes the Palestinians and justifies a home land for them, but unfortunately, this selfish act never once considered the suffering of the Palestinian civilians. In fact, perhaps you think they deserve it because Israel has been targeted with rockets from Gaza. But have you once asked yourself why the Israelis are receiving all these rockets? If the occupation stops, perhaps so would the terror.

Where are the basic human rights in Gaza? In the Gaza Strip, one and a half million people live virtually under siege, behind barbed wire, and without a chance to escape this prison camp. The living conditions are unbearable due to a severe shortage of food, medicine, clean water, with a strictly limited power supply and worsening hygienic conditions. Despite this situation the blockade of the Gaza Strip has been tightened and the Israeli Army launches military actions and bombardments on an almost daily basis. The civilians are the ones who have to suffer.

In my petition letter http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/petition-letter/ I have written, “In 1948, the United Nations promised the Palestinian people 45% of the disputed land and 55% to the Israelis. After 45 years of continuously killing one another, finally, in 1993, Yitshak Rabin, said that enough is enough, and in the Oslo Peace Agreement, gave the Palestinians 22% of the land and Israel kept 78% of the land. After his assassination, all agreements were in disarray. And 20 years later, the Netanyahu government still refuses to conclude the deal citing security as the reason. The other excuse is about Hamas being a terrorist group; therefore the Israeli government cannot talk to them even though Hamas and Fatah are together. This article references some similarities between the Israeli pursuit of statehood in 1948 and that of the Palestinians now:  http://deiryassin.org/

Since the Peace Agreement had been signed for almost 20 years and there is still no conclusion, how much longer do you want the Palestinians to continue to wait for talks? Do they have to wait until 100% of the land is in Israeli hands?

There is new talk in the Jewish community that Palestine belongs to the Jews as demonstrated by the example below:

“The name “Palestine” was given to ancient Israel by the conquering Romans 2100 years ago, when they “crucified” their way across the Balkans into Israel. And, where they continued the practice of crucifixion, cutting down swaths of forests and replacing those areas with forests of crucified Jews. “Palestinian” is a name that has been synonymous with “Israeli”, “Jew”, and “Hebrew” up until the past few decades, during which time, by a big lie of propaganda politics, “Palestine” and “Palestinian” have come to designate Arab land and Arabs, not the Holy Land of Israel and the Jews. This is a great propaganda coup for the Arabs. One may only hope that this Arab propaganda balloon will soon be properly punctured and burst.”

In the final five minutes of Mr. Netanyahu’s interview with Charlie Rose, he talks about how proud he is to be the leader of the Jewish state, what that means to him, what that land means to the Jews and how he will “protect the miracle” of a Jewish state. Unfortunately, the indigenous people of that land are not Jewish, and that’s the route of the conflict. Israel wants all the land, and they want it “Arab free”. Anyone who doesn’t see that is too blind, or too afraid to admit the truth.

Interestingly, Mr. Netanyahu mentioned his 101 year old father, and here is a quote from the man who raised Bibi. In an interview with Benzion Netanyahu, in which he is quoted as saying the following with respect to what Israel’s policy should be toward the Arab population under its control, “That they won’t be able to face [anymore] the war with us, which will include withholding food from Arab cities, preventing education, terminating electrical power and more. They won’t be able to exist, and they will run away from here. But it all depends on the war, and whether we will win the battles with them.”

We have often heard the Israeli government tell the world that the Palestinians are trying to drive the Jews into the sea. Now who is driving who into the sea? And recently we heard from Newt Gingrich that the Palestinians are historically “an invented people” and that the Palestinian leadership has always sought to destroy Israel. How dare Mr. Gingrich, a politician with the ability to exert influence the thinking of many Americans, make such a unilateral decision and espouse an opinion reaching millions of people that erases the legitimacy of an entire race of people. Please read this article written by Daoud Kuttab a Palestinian journalist who was born and lives in Jerusalem, I hope you will find it enlightening. http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/palestinian-identity/

It is time that America stood up for fair treatment of the Palestinians and stops this one-sided support of Israel.

Love, light, peace, harmony and unity,

Sunflower Chong

Dear Chong,

Thank you for contacting me about the creation of a Palestinian state. I appreciate hearing from you.

As a strong supporter of Israel, I understand and value your input on the establishment of a Palestinian state. While open to the creation of a free, independent Palestinian state that peacefully coexists with Israel, I strongly oppose the Palestinian Authority’s effort to achieve statehood unilaterally through a vote at the United Nations. A Palestinian state should only be created through negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.  To the extent necessary, the U.S. should also play a strong role in those negotiations. It is for these reasons that I cosponsored S. Res. 185, which passed unanimously in the Senate on June 28, 2011. As you may know, S. Res. 185 calls on the Obama administration to lead opposition to unilateral Palestinian statehood efforts and threatens a major change in U.S. relations with the Palestinian Authority if it includes an unreformed Hamas, including a suspension of aid.

Dear Senator

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
