Response to Viking12 (Original post)

7. Thank you for posting this, I wish more Americans

would get it instead of swallowing whole the propaganda. Some students from my seminary went on a global justice trip to Israel/Palestine this past summer and were absolutely shocked at what they found in Gaza and the casually dismissive, hateful attitudes from too many Israelis regarding it. They were also shocked at the apartheid attitudes against Israeli Arabs. Some were Jewish (my seminary is Christian (UCC), but ecumenical and there are students of other religions or no religion also) and were disturbed at such attitudes, for obvious historical reasons.

I absolutely hate and deeply resent that billions of my/our tax dollars are going to support such a brutal occupation and actions.
