Israel, right now, is building more Zionist settlements in east Jerusalem. the part of jerusalem that the palestinians have a claim to based on their (al aquasa?) mosque where they believe Mohammed returned to earth from heaven. It is slated to be the capital of their state if they EVER get one.
But Israel is destroying Palestinian homes and putting in new settlements for 1600 more families in this holiest of holy places for Muslims. This is just one case, they do it year after year. Crushing more homes and building more Jewish settlements. Their plan is to settle ALL of Palestine and crush the life out of the Palestinians and wipe the word "Palestine" off of the map, LITERALLY. If they get their way, (because the bible tells us this) when they are done there will be no Palestine. Everything between eastern Egypt to Jordan and Saudi Arabia to the northern tip of Lebanon will be Israel and to hell with all of those who live on those lands right now. i mean, Jews wrote a book 3 thousand years ago saying that that land is theirs and who's to argue with what the Jews wrote about themselves? I mean, I wrote that this town belongs to me 5 years ago and I won't stop till everyone is out of it so that I have it all. get my drift?
anyway, we have a chance for real peace by telling Israel to stop stealing Palestinian land and by creating two states. they've shown that they cannot live together in any kind of harmony so two states is what they both say they want and it is what they should get. Now, a minority jewish zionist group in America is raising it's voice to call Obama anti jewish. Imagine that. Telling Jews that they have to stop stealing palestinian land and building on it is being anti Jew. But there is an alternative. J street. A peaceful jewish organization that is working toward peace in the middle east. Lasting peace through solid borders that cannot be violated by either side once they are set. They will be borders recognized by the whole world. Israel won't be able to continue it's theft of Palestinian land because the borders will be fixed. The theft has to stop. The Israel of today is DEFINITELY not the Israel of the bible.
So today I hope you join this peace loving Jewish group and help us bring real and lasting peace to the middle east. Give them money, signatures, make phone calls, write letters, whatever you can do to stop the carnage and theft.
What would be our excuse for war if the Israel/Palestine issue were solved. Our government would have to admit that our wars are for oil. Please sign on for peace and justice.
It's getting hot out there.
"Distinguished leaders with decades of military service in both the United States and Israel have concluded that the continued lack of resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict threatens the security interests of both countries..."
If the last month of sustained political attacks from the status quo on President Obama over his balanced approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is any indication, we have the fight of our lives on our hands.
J Street is the political home of the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement.
