Global Counterterrorism Forum
By Tabitha Korol

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton initiated a Global Counterterrorism Forum for 29 Middle Eastern and European countries affected by and supportive of terrorism, the purpose of which is given as dealing with terrorism, assisting the countries whose populace is endangered, and effectively eliminating the sources of funding — yet, Israel, a victim of Hamas and Hezbollah terrorism, was blatantly excepted. Despite Clinton's explanation that they were seeking a way to involve Israel, this exclusion was clearly our administration's acquiescence to the will of the Islamic leaders.

Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Mark Kirk (R-IL) stated, "few countries in the world ...have suffered more from terrorism than Israel," and Israel would have contributed greatly to the forum and perhaps benefitted from it. By discriminating against Israel, our government has once again emboldened the Islamic countries responsible for worldwide terrorism and diminished our position as Leader of the Free World. Israel remains our closest ally and we have become our own enemy.

I denounce the activities of our nation against the democracy Israel and, by extension, ourselves, as we are attempting to forge bonds with our adversaries. No matter how we strive to comply with Islamic directives of intentionally rejecting Israel, these countries have made it perfectly clear, through the Muslim Brotherhood, their Koran, and the terrorist or stealth agents they send to invade the globe, that they will conquer and Islamize, enslave or kill. I denounce Mrs. Clinton and our administration for allowing these countries to establish the rules of engagement.
