EXCELLENT sample letter from VIPAC:

"I don't want you using MY money to fund Arafat's terrorism"
Use a subject line (the most important thing, as they don't always read the letters, but tally them by subject) such as:
Stop Funding Terror
Not with my money!
PLO still funds terror
You are aiding terrorists
Stop sending $ to PLO terrorists
Sample Letter:
President George W. Bush
The White House
Washington, DC
via E-mail

Dear Mr. President:

I think you are making a terrible mistake by supplying U.S. tax dollars
to Arafat's PLO at an ever accelerating rate, currently exceeding 200 million
dollars a year.

The PLO uses this money to pay for suicide bombers. Your supply of
hundreds of millions of dollars to the PLO makes it easier for them to continue
their campaign of Islamic terror. Just last week, on December 3, two Islamic
Jihad terrorists were arrested on their way to carry out a suicide bombing in an
Israeli school at the Yokneam commercial center. The suicide bomber - Manir
Shade Mohammed Rabia, 23, is a member of the Palestinian National Security
Service and the dispatcher of the suicide bomber - Morad Hassan Diab Abu-Zeyton,
20, is a member of the Palestinian National Security Service from the village of
Zbuba near Jenin.

That means that both of these Islamic terrorists are on Arafat's
official Palestinian Authority payroll, and therefore both have salaries that
are subsidized by your administration.

I remember when you were campaigning for the presidency, you pointed out
that since American citizens pay the taxes that fund the U.S. budget that "It's
not the government's money. It's your money." And you were absolutely right.

You are taking our money, my money, and giving it to Arafat who uses it
to pay the salaries of suicide bombers like those captured this Dec 3. I object
to this horrible misuse of our country's precious tax dollars. And I am ashamed
that my government continues to use my money to subsidize Arafat's Islamic
