Dear President Bush,
I am an American living in Ramallah less than 30 feet away from the compound of Yasser Arafat. I have a full view of what is going on in the compound.
Mr. President, I am afraid that your advisors are out of touch and do not understand the reality of the situation here.
I urge you to do the right thing and tell Sharon and his army to get out of the occupied territories immediately. é
If you don‘t do this America will be held responsible for the criminal actions of Sharon and his government.
All the homes around me are full of Israeli soldiers, my house was invaded as well… They hit me and my husband even though I told them I was American, they told me to shut up and they are not doing anything worse than what we are doing in Afghanistan.
Mr. President, this is Not Afghanistan and the Palestinians are NOT THE TERRORIST. The real TERRORISM IS THE OCCUPATION.
Mr. President, save the victims and ensure that the Americans don’t become a target to violence due to our incorrect and blind policy.
Maha Sbitani is a Palestinian-American living in Ramallah, next to Yasser Arafat’s compound.
