“Jase you’ve got to pull your head out of the sand if you want to contribute to these discussions. Here’s what Ed Koch (former mayor of NY and very liberal said: ‘I believe this is the most dangerous and critical period that Israel has ever faced and regrettably it does not have the support of the President of the United States, which in past difficult situations it could count on.’”Good! I hope the President doesn’t support Israel until they get serious about peace. I stated my position pretty much every time the topic of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict comes up, and it hasn’t changed. Israel’s actions against the Palestinians are partly to blame for the conflict cycle, as is the actions of Palestinians. Both sides are to blame and we should stop supporting either side until they get serious about stopping the cycle.
