Israel, Stop Your Genocidal Terror Attacks
From Jagjit Singh, Los Altos, CA
Israel’s abandonment of the rule of law and its intensified terror attacks against Palestinians, falsely labeling their resistance as militancy, is deeply concerning. The occupied land is an enemy of true democracy, with the occupiers acting as oppressors while the Palestinians suffer as victims.
The so-called militants are merely defending their land and property, much like how we resisted the British “red Coats”, and the Ukrainians resist Russian aggression. Don’t the Palestinians have the right, under international law, to defend themselves?
Both Republican and Democrat administrations have consistently supported an apartheid Israeli government with billions of dollars in military and economic aid. This support allows Israel to continue expropriating Palestinian land, perpetuating the law of the jungle.
Palestinians are not terrorists they are human beings living under a severe military occupation supported by our government.
Israel has just ordered 25 F-35 stealth fighter jets from the United States at a cost of $3 billion paid by our tax dollars making us accessory of mass murder. Nothing will change until we, the people, raise our collective voices and demand our government halt all further aid to Israel and Israel ends its genocidal attacks on the Palestinians.
President Biden’s public statements supporting democracy and the rule of law ring hollow and are profoundly disappointing.
Little wonder our credibility around the world is in free-fall.
