To His Excellency the President of the Republic of France, the Honorable Mr. Jacques Chirac, 

Allow us Sir to express to you our immense admiration and respect for your great human stand during your last trip to the Middle East.  It reflected a true human bravery and a realization and an understanding of the value of establishing fair, just, and legitimate foundations to build a new Middle East. 

Your declarations regarding the State of Palestine, land for peace, the return of refugees, and about the dangerous situation in Iraq have echoed in the heart of every human being in the Arab streets and reminded us of the giant and magnificent leader, Charles de Gaulle, who restored France to its former position of world greatness. 

You have brought back the crucial respect to France and essential regard to Europe’s role in the process of peace making in the Middle East.  We salute your efforts and wish you ever more success in your endeavors. 

EAFORD/President
