    As a 71 year old, I have watched as nearly all my adult life, our country has groveled in the face of Israeli demands... This latest incident is but one more example of Israel thumbing its nose at the world. I'm tired of it. Genocide is an outrage, and an atrocity, but it does not entitle the surviving generations to hold the rest of the world hostage indefinitely. Our support for the State of Israel, in terms of massive foreign and military aid, our turning a blind eye toward atrocities committed by Israel has demonstrated a lack of conscience/integrity. Which Holocaust matters to you, Mr. Lieberman? The 1904 extermination effort by the German government against the Herero nation of what is now Namibia, in which 80% of the Hereros died? Or the Native American losses, estimated at 40 to 50 million between 1500 and 1900? Or the Africans...maybe two and a half million, many many more....who were loaded onto slave ships, do these Holocasts count in your book? Solveig Kjeseth
