Ignorant Palestinian Sympathizers

Dov Shoham
Dov Shoham, general manager of Israeli-based Radix, which provides computer database storage and maintenance solutions, received an e-mail this week from a Danish client, canceling a major order due to "the Israeli militaire behaving so rough in the Palestinian Areas". The story was reported by Israeli daily "Yediot Aharonot" yesterday.

Shoham made the unusual decision to answer his Danish colleague in a long and detailed letter, explaining the Israeli position and the reasons for the current action against Palestinian Authority. The correspondence is presented below:
Initial Correspondence:
Name: Jens Peter Hansen Email: jh@sid.dk Phone: +45 86804050
Message: To the Manager Just now we're ready to buy 60 pieces off your "Radix protector net solution." But for the moment, when the Israeli militaire is behaving so rough in the Palestinian Areas, nor I or my Union feel that it's is right to make business with companies from your contry. We hope that this ugly war vil stop soon - and also we hope that Israel and Palestine will agree on peace.
Sincerely Yours,

Response e-mail from Radix:
"Dear Jens Peter Hansen,

Regardless of the fact that seven years after the Oslo agreement most of the Palestinians live under full political and economical control of Yasser Arafat, the Palestinians dare to claim that their brutal terror attacks against Israeli civilians is a result of living under Israeli occupation!!!
You buy this nonsense; you blame Israel for defending itself against the most brutal terrorism campaign against civilians the world ever saw. Your heavy pressure is aimed toward Israel instead of the terrorists.
I hate to say that my friend but you SUPPORT TERROR!
Since I believe that you are a honest person and I don't really think that you mean to support terror or harm Israel, I would like to inform you few things that you might forgot but your media do not bother to remind you.
18 months ago, Palestinian leader - Mr. Yasser Arafat rejected Israel's offer to get full control on 97% of the land he claimed plus alternative land for the remain 3%. 100% of the land he claimes!! This offer is considered by most of the Israelis as far more than Israel can offer without risking its security.

The Palestinian responded breaking the peace talks and massive terror against Israeli civilians.
Any Idea why did the Palestinians reject such generous offer? The answer is very simple. Yasser Arafat doesn't want a state next to Israel. He wants a Palestinian state build on the ruins of Israel. A Palestinians state instead of state of Israel!

Do you support that? Do you really think that Israel should let the Palestinians build a state on the ruins of Israel? Would you let them build their state on the ruins of Denmark?
Imagine yourself drinking beer in your lovely Tivoli gardens when a bomb exploding under the seat spreading your body all over the garden. Imagine yourself in a situation when a bus exploded in the center of Copenhagen and you know that your daughter might be on that bus. You can't reach her because thousands like you trying to reach their relatives using the same overloaded cellular network. Now imagine that this is the everyday situation in Denmark for 18 months.

Would you accept such situation? I don't think so. No mater what is the cause of the Palestinian suffer, my daughter is not responsible for that. She is not the one that has to be blamed for the Palestinian suffer and she shouldn't pay the price for Arafat's megalomania.
Let me clearly state that I have no problem choose between doing business with you or support my government in its effort to protect my daughter's life. Because of your support in terror I hold you personally responsible for my daughter safety.

I really hope that the Israeli government will not bend under your unfair and unbalanced pressure and continue with the work of rooting out terror from this region. Yes, even if I lose your business. If we fail, god forbids, we are doomed and you are next in line.
Yes, Palestinian civilians pays heavy price. Many killed by our military actions. Yes, we all think that this is terrible. But this is unfortunately the situation when terrorist find shelters behind civilians. Labs where bombs are manufactured are located in civilian neighborhoods. Palestinians "brave" warriors took shelters behind women and children, in schools and in ambulances.
There is one person to be blamed for the Palestinians suffer - Mr. Yasser Arafat. For six years since he got the full control on the Palestinians life, all he did is building the terror infrastructure, preparing for a war instead of developing the country and improving the life of his people.
By the way, I didn't notice that any of you or other peace lovers sensitive Europeans doing anything to stop the terror against Israeli civilians. Your voice was not heard when terrorist kept exploding themselves among Israelis in nightclubs, cafes, busses, schools, markets and hotels in the center of the cities taking huge number innocent lives. You people woke up only after Israel stood up and start to fight back.

We will do all it takes to defend ourselves because no one else will do it for us. Definitely not the Europeans. My mother is still alive to remind me what she has gone through in your civilized Europe 60 years ago.

We are going to defend ourselves even if it will disturb your sensitive soul in Europe and even if cost us to lose some business with you. But I advise to you to wake up. I know that you do not mean to encourage the Palestinian to go on with their brutal terror actions against civilians. Am I wrong?

Best regards"
