Dear Mr. President:
I am moved to write this letter due to a news article Headlined: “Holocaust Memorial Moves Bush to Tears.” I would like to quote the article: Yad Vashem Chairman Shalev quoted President Bush as asking Condoleezza Rice, “why didn’t President Roosevelt bomb it?”
It is well documented, Mr. President, that Rabbi Michoel Ber Weissmandl, may his name be blessed, drew a detailed map of the train tracks leading to Auschwitz and pleaded with many influential people within the Roosevelt administration that while America was bombing Germany they should also bomb the railroad tracks and save thousand of Jews.
His cries were unfortunately unheeded. And thousands more perished while the Allies continued to bomb Germany. (Fuchs, Abraham “The Unheeded Cry”, Artscroll/Mesorah Publications 1984)
David Wyman, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Massachusetts, has asked: “How could it be that the governments of the two great Western democracies knew that a place existed where 2,000 helpless human beings could be killed every 30 minutes, knew that such killings actually did occur over and over again, and yet did not feel driven to search for some way to wipe such a scourge from the earth?” (Wikipedia)
Mr. President you are courageous in discussing issues that others would not go next to with a ten foot pole. Roosevelt erred in not bombing those tracks.
Mr. President, what the left fails to understand is, that You learned from history. You get it. You understand evil. You understand the depravity in Iran. They do not.
Each and every week you are lambasted in the media. If they cannot mention the “quagmire in Iraq”, they will try anything to undermine your Presidency.
Mr. President do not be disheartened, there are many people that respect you; pray for you, and wish you only the best in your final year as President.
As you wrote in the visitor’s book at Yad Vashem: “G-d Bless Israel, George Bush.
May G-d bless you Mr. President for being a great friend of Israel and of the Jewish people.
History will judge you kindly.
