- Dov Shoham
- Dov Shoham, general manager of
Israeli-based Radix, which provides computer database storage and
maintenance solutions, received an e-mail this week from a Danish
client, canceling a major order due to "the Israeli militaire
behaving so rough in the Palestinian Areas". The story was
reported by Israeli daily "Yediot Aharonot" yesterday.
Shoham made the unusual decision to answer his Danish colleague in a
long and detailed letter, explaining the Israeli position and the
reasons for the current action against Palestinian Authority. The
correspondence is presented below:

Message: To the Manager Just now we're ready to buy 60 pieces off your
"Radix protector net solution." But for the moment, when the
Israeli militaire is behaving so rough in the Palestinian Areas, nor I

we hope that Israel and Palestine will agree on peace.

- Response e-mail from Radix:
- "Dear Jens Peter Hansen,
Regardless of the fact that seven years after the Oslo agreement most
of the Palestinians live under full political and economical control
of Yasser Arafat, the Palestinians dare to claim that their brutal
terror attacks against Israeli civilians is a result of living under
You buy this nonsense; you blame Israel for defending itself against
the most brutal terrorism campaign against civilians the world ever
saw. Your heavy pressure is aimed toward Israel instead of the
I hate to say that my friend but you SUPPORT TERROR!
Since I believe that you are a honest person and I don't really think
that you mean to support terror or harm Israel, I would like to inform
you few things that you might forgot but your media do not bother to
18 months ago, Palestinian leader - Mr. Yasser Arafat rejected
Israel's offer to get full control on 97% of the land he claimed plus
alternative land for the remain 3%. 100% of the land he claimes!! This
offer is considered by most of the Israelis as far more than Israel
can offer without risking its security.
The Palestinian responded breaking the peace talks and massive terror
against Israeli civilians.
Any Idea why did the Palestinians reject such generous offer? The
answer is very simple. Yasser Arafat doesn't want a state next to
Israel. He wants a Palestinian state build on the ruins of Israel. A
Palestinians state instead of state of Israel!
Do you support that? Do you really think that Israel should let the
Palestinians build a state on the ruins of Israel? Would you let them
build their state on the ruins of Denmark?
Imagine yourself drinking beer in your lovely Tivoli gardens when a
bomb exploding under the seat spreading your body all over the garden.
Imagine yourself in a situation when a bus exploded in the center of
Copenhagen and you know that your daughter might be on that bus. You
can't reach her because thousands like you trying to reach their
relatives using the same overloaded cellular network. Now imagine that
this is the everyday situation in Denmark for 18 months.
Would you accept such situation? I don't think so. No mater what is
the cause of the Palestinian suffer, my daughter is not responsible
for that. She is not the one that has to be blamed for the Palestinian
suffer and she shouldn't pay the price for Arafat's megalomania.
Let me clearly state that I have no problem choose between doing
business with you or support my government in its effort to protect my
daughter's life. Because of your support in terror I hold you
personally responsible for my daughter safety.
I really hope that the Israeli government will not bend under your
unfair and unbalanced pressure and continue with the work of rooting
out terror from this region. Yes, even if I lose your business. If we
fail, god forbids, we are doomed and you are next in line.
Yes, Palestinian civilians pays heavy price. Many killed by our
military actions. Yes, we all think that this is terrible. But this is
unfortunately the situation when terrorist find shelters behind
civilians. Labs where bombs are manufactured are located in civilian
neighborhoods. Palestinians "brave" warriors took shelters
behind women and children, in schools and in ambulances.
There is one person to be blamed for the Palestinians suffer - Mr.
Yasser Arafat. For six years since he got the full control on the
Palestinians life, all he did is building the terror infrastructure,
preparing for a war instead of developing the country and improving
the life of his people.
By the way, I didn't notice that any of you or other peace lovers
sensitive Europeans doing anything to stop the terror against Israeli
civilians. Your voice was not heard when terrorist kept exploding
themselves among Israelis in nightclubs, cafes, busses, schools,
markets and hotels in the center of the cities taking huge number
innocent lives. You people woke up only after Israel stood up and
start to fight back.
We will do all it takes to defend ourselves because no one else will
do it for us. Definitely not the Europeans. My mother is still alive
to remind me what she has gone through in your civilized Europe 60
We are going to defend ourselves even if it will disturb your
sensitive soul in Europe and even if cost us to lose some business
with you. But I advise to you to wake up. I know that you do not mean
to encourage the Palestinian to go on with their brutal terror actions
against civilians. Am I wrong?
