Israeli Occupation of Palestine

We Americans believe that as the conflict between Israel and Palestine rages in the Middle East, the people of the United States, including the President and all members of Congress, must ask themselves two questions:

How would you feel if an invader came into your neighborhood and told you to leave your home immediately because it was going to be demolished so the land could be used to build many new homes for the invaders?

Would you sit back and offer no resistance as your entire life was reduced to rubble?

Answer those questions honestly and you will understand the plight of all Palestinians who have been forced to live in subhuman conditions under Israeli occupation and control. If we would not tolerate the aggression of an invader in our own communities, how can we allow Congress and the President to not only condone such aggression from Israel but help pay for it with our American tax money?

This is an article written by an American group that calls itself "The Council for the National Interest". It is a non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization advocating a new direction for U.S. Middle East policy. It seems to me they are asking some very good questions.
