I hope this letter finds you in good health and helps you make the changes that you promised in your campaign, the person I voted for.
I now write this to you, not just as a simple man, but as a simple man who has been educated by a couple of months of research and fact finding that has made me realize that the Palestinian ongoing tragedy is a complex situation and one that would need a strong solution to solve.
First of all, the UN resolution in 1947 gave NO MORE than 55% of the land to Jews and 45% to Palestinians, and since its inception Israel has done nothing but kept expanding ever since. They become the terrorists themselves in executing this. Even when the UN has ordered Israel to return to pre-1967 borders so many times, to which Israel has totally ignored them and only the US makes a dissenting vote. Which means the resolution passed yet the US will not act on it, but the US expects every other country to act on its proposed resolutions.
The money also has gone to building not only the Gaza wall, but building a huge wall in the West Bank separating Palestinian city from Palestinian city, in which in itself is against the Geneva Convention and condemned by all except the US.
My question to you is, why are we supporting this with American tax dollars and not acting in agreement with the world as to the Israeli aggression? As an American, I want to know why this has been totally ignored by the media and the suffering of the Palestinian people? We tell Israel to stop, yet they continue with their plan to make all Palestinian territory totally part of Israel. This is nothing less than an ethnic cleansing and genocide of a people. Might I remind you that we condemned South Africa for the same reason and boycotted them until apartheid was ended! Why is Israel above and beyond reproach for its aggressive actions and the SAME apartheid issues?
I am tired of being called an anti-semetic because I’m anti-Zionist and they are NOT the same, one is a political movement the other is a religion. And it’s always the typical guilt trip laid upon non Jews, well if you’re anti-Zionist, you’re anti-Jewish which is total nonsense. And there ARE many Jewish groups opposed to the Zionist movement that was started by Hertzel in the 1880’s. To which led the British to the Balfour plan and eventually to the creation of a Jewish state.
The four tenets of what Israel”s plan to do is just this:
1. Full Occupation
2. Siege and Closure
3. Ferocious Settlement Expansion: 100% Expansion of Existing Settlements, 102 New Settlements
4. The Construction of an Apartheid Wall with intentions of Ethnic Cleansing
Now again, I ask you, why is the US supporting this agenda by Israel?? If this were any other country, the US would be the first to condemn them and bring up UN resolutions against them!
From September 2000-December 2003 43,470 homes destroyed in the West Bank, 18,311 homes destroyed in Gaza.
Between the years September 29, 2000 to October 2004 the numbers of Palestinian killed:
19% were children (under the age of 17) that’s 1 in 5; 82% were non-combatant civilians; 60% were shot with LIVE ammunition; 84% shot in the upper part of the body which were MEANT TO KILL!
Now if this was compared proportionately to the US population, that would be the equivalent of approximately: 290,000 killed; 4,550,000 injured.
