I suggest that every American (and Israeli) read the recent UNHRC report. I read it, and for the life of me I do not know how anyone associated with the occupation---Israeli officials, the settlers, business people who profit from the settlements and their expansion can hold up his/her head. Israel does as it pleases but I suggest a long term cost analysis come under consideration by the Israeli government and those people and states who support Israel's actions.
