The battle between Israel and Palestine is grossly uneven. America is just emerging from two god awful terms of George Bush as president and now must extricate ourselves from two immoral wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. Now Israel is attacking Palestine, their second of two immoral wars in two years. We do not need to get involved in this war. I hope Barack will condemn the attacks against Palestine and the UN will call for sanctions against Israel. We must allow the citizens of Israel to live free from the stranglehold of their war mongering government. The US emerged from eight years of war mongering and we must demand peace. An enlightening article about the unevenness of the war that Israel is launching against Palestine was written by Mark Steel and can be read here.
If Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton support this war then we have at least four more years of the same neocon vision that G.W. Bush brought to America. We need to keep up our protests against these crimes against humanity. Many Jewish people in Israel and abroad are against this disproportionate aggression. We need to join those with clearer heads and oppose the destruction and devastation being wrought upon the women, children and innocent men of Palestine.
