Peace comes from respect and fair, equal treatment. Violence comes from abuse and oppression. We honor the historic Judaic values of truth and justice. Being pro-Israel requires a resolution of the conflict in the context of those values. Reliance on checkpoints, home demolitions, colonialism and a military occupation diverges from those values. Being pro-Israel is being for a just peace that will endure. However being committed to the expansion of Israel at a cost to the Palestinians is not pro-Israel. Our search for human values should not be blinded by zealotry.
