Dear Ms. Wallstrom,
I assume that part of what made you choose to draw the connection between the conditions in which Palestinians live in Israel and the terrorist attacks in Paris was done to placate part of your base, but in doing so you did something so egregious you should resign or be removed from your position immediately.
Ironically in choosing to insinuate Israel’s share in the blame for what happened, you actually let everyone know how you yourself actually share part of the blame. Although I do not believe you have any direct connection to the terrorists that committed the atrocities in Paris, in taking such an illogical and thoughtless approach against the democratic country spending more time fighting terrorists than any other, you actually brand yourself as a philosophical accomplice.
Whether it is because you have strong Muslim support in your country or because you are misguided in your opinions, or maybe just an ardent anti-Semite, your words are part of what empowers radicalized Muslims. What you may fail to see and certainly failed to articulate, is that the poor living conditions in which the Palestinians find themselves is primarily caused by misappropriation of funds by their leaders as well as a constant indoctrination of hatred towards the Jewish people. If you would take time to look at it more closely you would see that the government of Israel has made countless efforts to better the lives of the Palestinians. What you choose to see instead is Palestinian Authority and Hamas propaganda that blames everything on Israel.
I am sure the leadership of ISIS is very pleased to have people such as yourself deflect the blame from where it belongs and place some of it instead on the State of Israel. Just understand that in doing so you play so much into the terrorist organization’s hands that you show yourself to be like-minded in many ways.
It may seem harsh to see someone draw a connection between yourself and something as evil and vicious as the terrorist attacks in Paris, but to that I only say the following to you. Now you know how we Zionists feel when you do it to the government of Israel. Except in your case it is actually accurate. In philosophy if not in practice.
I urge you to take a good look at what you are doing and understand the magnitude of your words and the responsibility you have as an important politician in an otherwise respected and liked European nation and hopefully realize that your words ultimately put more innocent lives in danger.
