32. Not enough of us letting our government know we're against this pro-Israel all the time stance

I have long questioned our government's pro-Israel stance on everything Israel does. For to long we have allowed our government, in our name, to make statements backing Israel when they have continued doing things they should not be doing such as settlement expansion, starting wars in Lebanon, etc. I think it's time we think about formally ending some of our treaties which seem to allow Israel to do is at pleases while we sit back and do or say nothing which, in effect, means we're condoning it. Now that President Obama is possibly considering Chuck Hagel for the new Secretary of Defense, I think it is important that we back him up by letting our senators and the president know that he is a good choice. We need to fight back against AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) which is basically a neocon-like committee that believes America should explicitly back Israel in all it's affairs. At this moment, AIPAC is on the attack against Chuck Hagel -- they are lobbying our members of congress and bad mouthing him because they fear that he would actually stand up to this pro-Israel all the time stance that we have held basically since the State of Israel was founded.
