Let’s set the stage. The Hamas attack on illegal Jewish settlements was horrific and cannot be condoned. Yet, as the Secretary General of the United Nations said, “It did not happen in a vacuum,” and “Gaza is becoming a graveyard for children.”

Beginning in 1948, Jews have driven Palestinians from their homes, have not allowed them to return and have not compensated them for their loss. All actions that are against international law and even more importantly, actions that are inhumane, immoral and unjust. Since 1967 Jews have illegally expanded their settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with about 750,000 Jews now residing there illegally.

All the while, West bank settlers are murdering and evicting Palestinians from their homes.

Washington’s unconditional support for Israel has severely tarnished America’s image around the world and has diminished the…
