I realize the instant anyone criticizes Israel, you’re immediately jumped on for being anti-Semitic, but enough is enough.
I fully defend Israel’s right to defend itself, but unfortunately, just as the U.S. has done lately, they have thrown away any semblance of restraint and humanity and used weapons that are not to be used in civilian areas…in civilian areas. These settlers continue to encroach on the West Bank and into Palestine creating an intractable situation there, and making any sort of peace settlement unlikely.
And now, interestingly enough, they have decided that Jerusalem needs a tourist attraction, an archaeological park. So, they have issued eviction notices for 88 homes in Silwan, a Palestinian neighborhood in East Jerusalem. This will displace approximately 1,500 people according to a report in The Christian Science Monitor.
I think it’s time that the U.S. Government suspended supplying arms to Israel, and stopped this unconditional support. It is not out of the realm of possibilities to now call Israel a terrorist state.
