Crawford Demonstrators To Rally for Pollard
Justice4JP Release - April 7, 2005
Demonstrators at the
The Emergency Rally For Israel planned for this Monday, 11 April 2005, in Crawford Texas, during P.M. Sharon's visit with the President at his Crawford Ranch, will
"call on President Bush to live up his Biblical imperatives as well as his policies on counter terrorism and to release Jonathan Pollard." (Details in Freeman Center release below.)
J4JP points out that the abandonment of Jonathan Pollard by the Government of Israel 20 years ago, created the paradigm for abandonment in Israel and ultimately set the stage for the abandonment of entire populations in Gush Katif and the Shomron.
When the Government of Israel lied about Jonathan Pollard two decades ago, denied any connection to him, and handed over the documents needed to indict him, Israel became the first nation and only nation in the history of the modern world to actively assist in the prosecution of its own agent.
In the 20 years that Jonathan has been in prison, no other nation has ever challenged Israel's ignoble record. Israel remains the only nation that ever turned on its own agent. Now it turns on its own People. No other nation in the history of the world has ever uprooted its own citizens and forced them out of their own homes and off of their land.
Abandoning one person set the stage for the abandonment of the many. Save one and it becomes possible to save all.
J4JP strongly supports the organizers and the goals of the Crawford Rally. We would also like to point out that Jonathan Pollard is an honorary citizen of Gush Katif, and an honorary member of the Gaza Coast Regional Council.
J4JP urges everyone who possible can, to please make every effort to attend. Details follow below, with thanks to Bernie Shapiro of the Freeman Center for Strategic Studies.

*The Rally for Israel will be held in Crawford Texas, (in Tonka Park) not too far from President Bush's Ranch
* An air conditioned bus with bathrooms is being chartered to take us directly to the Rally and back to Houston. It is much more convenient than each of us to trying to drive in separate cars. The round trip has been paid for by the Freeman Center. It will be free for everyone and is wheel chair accessible. Contributions will be accepted.
*Israeli PM Sharon will be Bush's guest - A lot of media will be on site
* The rally will be peaceful and primarily made up of pro-Israel Christians & Jews who will be calling on Bush to live up his Biblical imperatives as well as his policies on counter terrorism
and to release Jonathan Pollard.
*Calls to Sharon will be to stop the lemming like rush to suicide, support for terrorism, abandoning the Holy Land, given to the Jewish people in perpetuity, and of course dividing the Israeli people and crushing the spirit of Zionism
* We are planning 500 buses (30 people each) from all over the country. I will be bringing pro-Israel Jews and Christians from the Houston-Galveston area.
*Speakers will include: Ruth Matar, Col (Ret) Yoash Tsiddon-Chatto, Dr. Yossi Ben-Aharon, Dr. Israel HaNukoglu, Dr. Gadi Eshel, Rabbi Offir and Noga Cohen, and Paul Eidelberg.
* From Yoram Ettinger: You don't have to be an opponent of the proposed "Disengagement" to examine a most comprehensive analysis of the implications of "Disengagement". See the Powerpoint presentation (in Hebrew and/or in English) which have been posted at www.acpr.org.il/hatikvah/index.htm.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS RALLY, PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL WITH YOUR NAME, PHONE, FAX.
