« Obama is wrong in his opposition to the prosecution of those responsible for torture | Main | Scott Bailey for school board »

Thanks for republishing Hala Gores' fine piece. For those who are inclined, please note that comments are welcomed following the article. Hala deserves our support. Here's mine:

Hala Gores should be a role model for the right-wing Jewish hate-mongers who disparage her. As a Jewish American who has long supported the legitimate aspirations of Palestinians, I continue to be dumbfounded by the continuing lies about the very existence of the Palestinian people.

The work of Jewish intellectuals like Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, and Naomi Klein should be consulted by those who question the veracity of many of these comments. The fact is that most Jewish Americans are shamed by these people, and we wish that they would move to Israel, where their hatred will be appreciated.

However, it is the U.S., including the Democrat savior Obama, that we should be attacking, not Israel, which is totally dependent on us for military, political and economic support. We must end all so-called "aid" (most of which goes into the pockets of U.S. corporations) to Israel until the long-suffering Palestinian people receive their due.

Israel is little more than an offshore military base for U.S. hegemonic designs in the Middle East. If there were no oil there, the U.S. would have no interest in supporting Jews there, and U.S. Jews had best wake up to that reality.
