Open letter to French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault:

Do the French not know the truth about the Palestinian Arabs or do they not care?

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, you have initiated a new Palestinian-Israeli Peace Process.

Mr. Ayrault, I am a 94 year old Jewish American recipient of your Legion of Honor for my service in France during World War II. I feel that I have the right to respectfully ask you to read the PLO original 1964 Charter which called for the destruction of Israel when Israel was within her 1967 borders. Please study Clause 24 which states, "This Organization does not exercise any regional sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, on the Gaza Strip . . ."

I also would like you to study the rest of my letter which might compel you to have second thoughts about a Palestinian-Israel peace conference at this time.

Are you aware of the fact that Oslo, the last "Peace" Agreement between the Palestinian Leadership and Israel, resulted in Israel's conveyance of a large segment of the 'West Bank', and Palestinian failure to change one word of their absolute obligation to eliminate the clauses of their PLO Charter to destroy Israel?

I am prepared to give a Wells Fargo $250,000 check to you or the first person who presents a document validly voted by the Palestinian National Council which lists the alleged annulments of the charter and which contains the new language of the alleged partially annulled clauses. Clause 29 of the original 1964 Charter and Clause 33 of the 1968 Amended 1964 Charter clearly state that the Charter cannot be changed unless two-thirds of the members vote for a change. No such document exists; therefore, any attempt which allegedly has changed the Charter is null and void.

Are you aware of the fact that the other two political Palestinian parties, Hamas and Fatah, also have a charter and a constitution calling for the destruction of Israel?

Have you ever read any of MEMRI and PMW recent frequent exact translations of Palestinian T.V., newspaper articles, Palestinian leaders' speeches, and clergy Fridaysermons?
