We’ve always been nationalists by Robert Kinnaird on The Hofstra Chronicle

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

The truth is that America has been a nationalist country for a long, long time. Our country has a habit of making itself the world police. We destabilize governments that go too far left through coups; we place embargos on socialist countries; we blindly support an apartheid state in the middle east that is actively committing genocide on Palestinian people while breaking international law to do it. And most of us don’t care. Most Americans are willing to turn a blind eye to American imperialism and war crimes because “America doesn’t do that. America is the good guy.” But we’re not.

As Palestinians Worldwide Mark 68 Years Of Exile, The Nakba Continues To Unfold by Joe Catron

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

For Palestinians marking the Nakba, it signifies not only a historical event, but also an ongoing process that continues to expel and enclose millions. And global outpourings each Nakba Day demonstrate the determination of millions to return to their homes, however many generations removed. “It is acknowledging the means in which Israel came to be — ethnic cleansing, genocide, and colonialism — and affirming it has no right to exist as a state built on the deaths and backs of our ancestors,” Kiswani said. “The strongest message we send in Nakba Day commemorations is that we will not forget, and we will return.”

LETTER: U.S. seniors should be happy to sacrifice their benefits for Israel on Daily Freeman

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

America has learned an important lesson from the Holocaust: Don’t stay neutral while millions are suffering. This time, our country is right in there funding, arming and protecting the killers. Our political class makes all-expenses-paid trips to Israel while America becomes increasingly responsible for the genocide of the Palestinian people. That’s certainly worth a little more senior poverty.

A Jewish-American perspective on Zionism and Israel-Palestine by Sinead Lamel

In hindsight, many Americans will admit that the Vietnam and Iraq wars were colossal and devastating mistakes, yet the prolonged silence of American citizens allowed for the deaths of millions of innocent citizens. Lest we let our silence and inaction lead to genocide, Americans, especially Jewish Americans, must begin changing the narrative around Israel… Would we call the violent resistance of the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto terrorism?) Americans remain supportive of Israel, giving them three billion dollars in aid a year; meanwhile, it is becoming clear that Israel is attempting to commit genocide against the Palestinian people.
