    For the President of the United States, the UN, and the entire diplomatic community to expect, and even demand, that Israel conform to international law is not anti-Israel, anti-democratic nor pro-dictatorships. It is a call for Israel to cease being a rogue nation and become a respected member of the international community. Israel is currently in violation of UN Security Council resolutions, 242 (1967),452 (1979) and 465 (1980) The building of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the annexation of Jerusalem and the Gaza blockade are in violation of Article 49, 53 and 147 of the 4th Geneva Convention and of the 1st Protocol article 85 of the Convention. These violations can be prosecutable in the International Criminal Court in the Hague as war crimes. The US is a nation of laws. Its morals and sense of human dignity are offended by the occupation and oppression of over 3 million Palestinians for 42 years. Israel thumbs its nose at American core values, therefore, so must you.
