Appeal letter to House Speaker Newt Gingrich PDF Print E-mail
July 9, 1996

The Honorable Mr. Newt Gingrich,
Speaker of the House, Washington, DC.
Fax No : 1-202-225-7733.

Dear Mr. Speaker,

Greetings from Dallas, Texas. Most respectfully, I would like to make a special peaceful request to you to please discuss or pass on the contents of this appeal letter to the Prime-Minister of Israel, Mr. Netanyahu, when he meets you. Thanks for this unusual request.
'An appeal to Mr. Netanyahu through Mr. Newt Gingrich' 

The cynical world is worried that the Likud is back-with a vengeance-and that the cycle of violence in the Middle East will increase. However, being an eternal optimist, I believe that God Almighty has given an opportunity to a new Israeli leader, Mr. Netanyahu, to do something remarkable that no Middle East leader, except Mr. Sadat, had the guts to do, that is, to take a bold step for the real peace. Messrs. Rabin, Peres and Arafat should be credited for starting the current peace process, but if there was a gutsy Palestinian or Israeli leader who had taken one bold step to accept earlier what they have accepted now, mutual recognition of Israel and a Palestinian state, then so many innocent lives could have been saved from the continued cycle of violence. I would like Mr. Netanyahu to know that eventually one day (one, five, ten or fifteen years from now) the following will occur :

1)  Palestinians will get their own state (Palestine) next to Israel and both will live in peace.

2)  Israel will return the Golan Heights to Syria and there will be peace between the two.

3)  Israel will leave the security zone in southern Lebanon and the violence will end there.

4)  The city of Jerusalem will not be formally divided and may become the unique capital of  Palestine and Israel, and all the three religions will have control of their own holy places. 

5)  Israelis will get real security, and Israel will become main economic power in the area.
If Mr. Netanyahu has the guts to take one bold action now, unites with Mr. Peres, and plans to bring home all the Israeli soldiers from the troubled areas of Palestine, Golan Heights and southern Lebanon, then the tragedy of Middle East conflict will cease to exist, and this young  leader will become the real king of Israel, a hero in the Middle East and a darling of the world. Mr. Netanyahu writes " leaders must have the courage to do what is required even in the face of the most stinging criticism". But if he takes the course of the previous leaders - hesitation and a go slow policy - then the bloodshed will continue and more innocent lives will be lost. Why to prolong the human tragedy and the agony?  Mr. Netanyahu, I appeal to you, on behalf of the innocent Israelis and Palestinians killed by the cycle of violence in the last forty eight years, to please be a visionary leader and look into your heart and your conscience will tell you the right way to finally end human suffering, because ' it is with the heart that one sees rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye'.  

Mr. M. Khaliq Qureshi,
