Okay, here’s the deal. I’m looking at this age old question from an American point of view and in layman’s terms. We went to bat for Israel back in the late 1940’s, and, ever since, we have publically been advocates for a Palestinian State. Granted our true support has seen its highs and lows, but we‘ve spent an incredible amount of diplomatic time and capital on the subject.
It would certainly be a shame if all our support amounted to lip service, especially being the Nation that we claim to be. It makes me wonder if we’re just giving our own philosophy lip service. If this Country is truly serious about the right of Palestine to exist as a Nation, We should not be constantly throwing wrenches in the gears of progress. If, in fact, we can’t support the rights of the Palestinian people, then we need to shut up and sit down.
