Arabs and Jews at Meeting in Stockholm

December 25, 1988

I am not surprised that Stanley Sheinbaum, a board member of the ACLU and supporter of "progressive Jewish organizations," would come to Stockholm to embrace Arafat, the chieftain of the Arab terrorists. Jacobo Timmerman, an ingrate who was once saved by the state of Israel from the Argentine junta, and who has since called Israel "a fascist state," did not need to plead with Sheinbaum to get Americans to bring pressure on Israel. Apparently, Stanley Sheinbaum was quite willing to do so himself.

By embracing the terrorists Sheinbaum did not "do it for Israel," nor for peace. He did it to satisfy his love for "progressive" causes. However, I did not expect him to be so ignorant or equally arrogant as to compare Begin, Shamir and the Irgun to Arab terrorists. The Irgun and its fearless members battled the British imperial armed forces; never did the Irgun target children, kindergartens, school buses, invalids, passenger airplanes, cruise liners or places of religious worship.
