As a Jew, I find it hard to believe that my people, who have been opressed for centuries, can turn around and do the same to the indiginous people of Palestine. We must rise above and do the right thing. Stop the setlement activity, Negotiate a lasting peace that takes the 1967 borders in fulll consideration and stop the humiliation and sarrow of the Palestinians. Israel can be so much more if we give true peace and human compassion a chance. We as a people have inflicted terrible pain to the Palestinian people for too long. It is a natural human response to resist occupation and opression. We must reverse course now to see a brigheter future for Israel and consequently to the world. I hope Obama has the courage to see this situation for what it is.
