Stand firm against settlements

Stand firm against settlements

As a potential facilitator of peace, the usa and Obama must stand firm against continuing Israeli expansion of settlements in East Jerusalem. Palestinians have long planned to place the capital of an independent Palestine in East Jerusalem. Negotiations for a peace settlement have been stalled for years, with the settlement policy a major issue of contention. The American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC) and others are pressuring Obama to change his stand. But, Americans who want to insure a secure future for Israel, with justice and freedom for Palestinians, must support the President, and cease lobbying for the incorrect stance of the old Netanyahu government. Especially since the two parts of Palestine may be settling their differences, and peace is, therefore, more possible than in a long time, Obama's stance is correct and should be maintained; now.

      no new settlements is not enough. israel must honor the boundaries set in 1967 with all of its neighbors. also israel must return land in the name of peace. real land with water not just a few acres of desert.

      Americans believe in freedom and justice for ALL. The Israeli government needs to stop using "security" as their reason for continuing their human rights violations. The Israeli government does not deserve one cent of my tax dollars, especally when my community needs funding.

      Obama looks stupid pretending to make decisions at the UN.

      The whole world knows Bibi and AIPAC have him by the balls.

      Isn’t it about time Americans decided what the USA does and doesn’t do??

      Or are they happy to swallow the vomit Zionists feed them and make hell for Palestinian women and children??

      Every American who doesn't raise his/her voice against crimes against humanity shares the responsibilty for allowing it to take place
