Dear PM: Eliminating Terrorists & their Associates

9 November 2001


Rt Hon Helen Clark
Prime Minister
Wellington


Dear Helen,
Eliminating Terrorists and their Associates

I attach information sufficient to identify a woman whom I think you wish to kill. Or perhaps you wish to kill only her sons or some of her associates. She clearly identifies herself as a harbourer of some people who qualify as terrorists in terms of the war New Zealand has joined.

I find it hard to distinguish between the approved ways of killing, like sucking blood from the bodily orifices of Iraqis or Afghanis by using hydrocarbon BLU-82 fuel explosives, and the disapproved ways of killing, like smashing and incinerating Americans by using the hydrocarbon fuel from commercial aircraft tanks.

In any case, I implore you to revise your current opinions and not to act on the killing impulse. Please do not identify Edna Yaghi (article attached below)to the Security Intelligence Service or any other New Zealand authority who might notify their coalition associates of the need to eliminate her, her family or associates.

I well remember campaigning with you against the mindless killing which nuclear weapons enable.


Kia ora,

You Have Made Me Your Human Bomb


By Edna Yaghi

(SOURCE: Palestine Times - http://www.ptimes.com/)

I am the product of your tyranny. You have dissected the leftovers of my country into bits and pieces of shantytowns, ghettoes and concentrations camps. You have cut off my water supply and left me thirsty while you, the Israelis, bathe in cooled pools not far from where I live. You have uprooted my trees and desecrated my fields making sure I have no way to sustain myself or those who depend on me. You have cut off medical supplies that treat the wounded, and at your checkpoints, you detain and humiliate Palestinians and prevent those who are in dire need of medical assistance to pass through causing my people, who are your victims, to die at your impromptu borders.

You assassinate my freedom fighters while explaining to the world that you are merely defending your own squatters. You shoot to kill little children who in defiance and courage wield small stones in the name of liberty against you, the fiercely armed enemy.

You torture the children and resistance fighters; you incarcerate and try to bribe or coerce my people into collaborating against one another. You bulldoze homes and you prevent me from earning a living. You kill me by remote control from your U.S.-made Apache helicopters. Your settlers who squat on what you have left me of my land throw firebombs into my dwellings and on my passageways, attack my children and womenfolk with guns and clubs and hate.

You occupy my land and on my bloodstained hills station your tanks and armoured jeeps in order to shoot off one by one little children playing in the streets.

You cut off my electricity so you can assassinate me more easily in the dank shadows of your dark treachery. You shoot out my water tanks and you kill off Palestinian servicemen even though at the time of your brutal massacres, these servicemen were patrolling their land or simply eating their last supper and accuse them of not doing enough to stop our children attacking your soldiers and settlers.

You are cowards and you are afraid of little Palestinian children with stones. You never kill them single handedly. You roam in groups like packs of wild dogs and you are just as vicious if not more so.

You leave me and my people without hope and when you have driven me into a corner and deprived me of all that is human, I react with anger and bitterness. You have stripped me of all hope for a peaceful future. I strap explosives onto my body and search for a place to detonate myself. Yes, I kill your civilians, but this is the price you have to pay for killing my brothers and sisters, and for taking away my inalienable rights, the rights that all men are entitled to, and for your demoniacal oppression of my people.

It is really very simple. God created all men equal and no man better than any other. Yet, somehow you have made it your protocol that Jews are better than all others and that you have the right to come to my land committing rape and plunder and expect me to thank you for doing so.

Just the other day, a young boy was eating lunch. One of your settlers who came from America threw a firebomb into this boy's house. His two brothers were killed immediately. But the one boy survived albeit horribly disfigured. His name is Amar Emeera. His scars have turned a once beautiful child into a grotesque being that does not even look human. What did this child do to go through life so horribly disfigured?

You shoot babies point blank while swaddled in their parent's arms in Palestinian cars going to weddings. You slay Palestinian children going to and from school and you slaughter Palestinian children when they fight your armies with their bare hands. One such child, Mohammed Abu Arrar was shot down and killed when he protested your occupation of his land. Palestinian relatives of the boy kissed his body laid out in coffin before he was taken away to be buried in the Gaza Strip.

You kill unarmed Palestinian fathers on their way to buy school supplies and books for their children. You have even run out of excuses for the atrocities you continue to perpetrate. You shell the homes of Palestinian families, instantly killing the occupants and then claim that the action was friendly fire from the Palestinians even though the homes were far removed from the scene of the battle and even though remnants of your American-made shells are scattered about the demolished homes of the innocent.

You collectively punish 3 million Palestinians, half of whom are children who reside on what is left of their own land though you know full well that their only desire is to free themselves from your barbaric and cruel occupation.

You tell the world that you want peace.. yet at every corner, at every instance, you are as far from peace as the earth is from a different universe speeding in an opposite direction. You speak peace with the forked tongues of your leaders and then look surprised when finally a Palestinian human bomb blows himself up amongst you.

You will only be free of the threat of human bombs and stones being thrown at you when you honestly seek a just and comprehensive peace and when you end your occupation of the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine.

ENDS
