Weiner Denounces Terrorism

Weiner Denounces Terrorism

In reference to President Bush’s meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to discuss the Israeli /Palestinian conflict, Congressman Anthony Weiner has issued a statement that reflects his beliefs about the meeting. The statement was issued prior to the meeting.

Rep. Weiner stated: "While American soldiers go cave to cave to root out terrorists in Afghanistan, and Israel fights for its very survival, the Saudis literally sponsor terrorists, publicly supporting Palestinian terrorism, and using telethons to raise tens of thousands of dollars for homicide bombers. President Bush should reject an Abdullah meeting unless and until the Crown Prince ends his support for Palestinian terrorism, and denounces pro-terrorist statements made by Saudi government officials, members of Parliament, religious leaders, and media. The Crown Prince wants to be taken seriously as a partner in the Israeli/Palestinian peace process, even as Middle East terror networks are saturated with Saudi blood money, and despite the fact that Saudi Arabia was homeland to fifteen September 11th hijackers. He can’t have it both ways. Saudi double dealing must end before Bush meets Abdullah."
