there- it's out there. the israeli policies of walling up and starving and bombing the crap out of helpless families of Palestinians along with their continued building in what is palestinian neighborhoods is flat out, unequivocably wrong. period. israel does not have a right to exist in this manner. israelis and Palestinians should be living together side by side- and the days when israel needed to bomb the shit out of its neighbors is over. america is the single biggest threat to stability and democracy in the region and if we stopped aiding the corrupt israeli government with selling arms and whatnot- there'd be some real progress post haste because there would be no choice but diplomacy.
"There are few political relationships more fraught than that between American Jews and Israel. As the national emblem of Jewish identity, Israel is seen by many Jews as sacrosanct. Some Jews passionately identify with Israel and its policies and angrily reject any criticism of it, often attacking critics as anti-Semites or self-hating Jews. But even those Jews who privately harbor misgivings about Israel’s policies often keep their opinions to themselves because the subject is simply too charged. Anyone, Jewish or not, who dares to say or write anything critical about Israel quickly learns that they have poked a hornet’s nest."
which is precisely why we have to keep standing up and saying it. israel is wrong.
