Doug, you are absolutely right. There are many Jews such as myself who believe in justice for the Palestinians, for an end to the vicious and illegal occupation, to an end of the idea of Jewish superiority, to an end of racism. Unfortunately, there are those who are blinded by the idea of Israel's "right" to the land or who justify the dispossession of the Palestinians because Jews suffered in Europe. Yes, Jews suffered in Europe but the Palestinians did not cause that suffering and yet they have also paid a high price. The suffering that Israel is imposing on the Palestinians is completely contrary to the ideals of Judaism with which I was raised.
