Letter to my Representatives in Congress.

Below I am listing many of the things that the Israeli Government are doing with the world looking the other way and we in the United States are actually paying for!!!  I am against supporting the taking of others’ land and this is not what I learned that MY AMERICA stands for – yet you stand and clap when Netanyahu says ALL of Jerusalem!!! You stand and clap when he says that the West Bank does not belong to the people that have lived there for thousands of years, you stand when he says that the ’67 borders are indefensible (they seemed to defend them very well in 1967!!), and you stand when he says that his country is a Democracy but that they will absolutely not let the native people return to their lands!!!  You stood while he spit on our core beliefs about what a Democracy is and so many of the Values that our Brave men and women die for. The Arab-Israelis do not have the same rights as a Jewish-Israeli!!! Any Jew anywhere in the world can become an Israeli citizen, move to Israel, and buy land with help from the government; but the Arab-Israelis can only buy land in certain areas of Israel and a Palestinian born on the land cannot become an Israeli or purchase any land.  
Shame on America the Day that a racist, lying, hater like Netanyahu arrogantly walked in and was treated with respect that he has not earned with his thoughts, actions, or ideas.
WATCH what Netanyahu says from his own mouth when he tells someone to turn off the camera:
The film was shot, apparently without Netanyahu's knowledge, nine years ago. He brags about how the US is “easy to move.” He also boasts that he deceived the US president at the time, Bill Clinton, into believing he was helping implement the Oslo accords, the US-sponsored peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, by making minor withdrawals from the West Bank while actually entrenching the occupation. He brags that he thereby destroyed the Oslo process. Netanyahu does not want peace – He wants more land!!!

1.    Illegal acquisition of land by force.
2.    Forbidding civilians the right to return to their homes following the end of armed conflict.
3.    Illegal population transfer.
4.    Destruction of holy places, and interfering with ministers of religion performing their religious duties.
5.    Illegal practice of collective punishment.
6.    Practice of racism.
7.    Practice of apartheid:    The State of Israel has a formal system of legalized discrimination against Palestinian Arabs which technically fits the official UN definition of Apartheid.
8.    Illegal military occupation.
9.    Illegal modification of local law.
10.    Illegal de Facto Annexation:  Israel creates de facto annexation of much of Palestinian territories occupied during 1967 war (as it radically alters local laws in order to apply Israeli law to the Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian lands, and in violation of Palestinian rights of self-determination largely to the benefit of the Israeli economy)
11.    Violations of right to self-determination.
12.    Violations of UN Resolutions: Israel has violated 28 resolutions of the United Nations Security Council (which are legally binding on member-nations), and almost 100 resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly (which are not binding, but represent the will and understanding of the international community).
13.    Practice of ethnic cleansing.
