This is the text of a petition that I intend to circulate starting Monday, and send to the White House.
"Dear President Bush:
"The undersigned believe that the parties to the Middle-East conflict
are either unable or unwilling to achieve peace by themselves.
"The undersigned believe that peace in the Middle-East is not only
desirable but politically necessary.
"The undersigned therefore request that, with the support of the United Nations,
the United States intervene militarily in the Middle-East and use
whatever means necessary to put an end to the violence now."
I am under no illusions, but the voices of the people who are fed up with this conflict must, and shall, be heard.
We did not act in Rwanda. We acted too late in Bosnoa. It is already to late in the Middle-East. We must act NOW.
Enough is enough.
