You Can Help Palestinians Right Now

As I am working on my latest post I came across this and wanted to put this up as soon as possible.

ACTION ALERT: Don't Let the House Impose Sanctions on the Palestinians!

When President Truman wrote his memoirs he answered why he had thrown his support behind the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine, despite his strong reservations, he said it was because none of his constituants where Palestinian.

Well, here's your chance to stop things from becoming worse!

I have been accused of being a pessimist, but given this terrible bit of legislation had nearly 300 co-sponsors (and the Americans have what, 435 members of their lower House?), this was unfortunately unstoppable.

Clearly the Democrats are not the alternative political party.

Remind me,

What is wrong with not directing taxes to the Hamas Government? Don't you want it to fail quickly? I thought you wanted peace?

Abu Shaar said...

So the Americans believe in democracy only if those who vote vote for those the Americans like?

Abu Issa ; I dont know how useful such appeals and demands to change or apply new rules in the states are.
