    In my opinion, there should not be a higher calling for US Jews today than to work to end Israeli occupation of Palestine and dismantle the zionist apartheid regime. I know there are plenty of good conscious Jews who abhor what they see coming out of Israel. Jews who fought against apartheid/segregation in America should today fight to end apartheid in Israel. The same Jews or the next generation of Jews who worked hard for civil rights for blacks and minorities should lend their expertise to ending discrimination in Israel. Is the obligation less or greater for Jews when the opressor is Jewish or not? The fact US Jews are silent and have been intimidated by Zionists and their supremacist ideology, suggests for Jews there is a double standard: You can't discriminate but our people can? How can that be? Jews worked to end apartheid in South Africa but at the same time support it in Israel? What's the difference between Soweto and Gaza other than the obvious black and brown, Jew and non-jew distinction? Or the Warsaw ghettos? US Jews need to do some serious soul searching and come to grips with the idea of Jews as the opressors and NOT THE VICTIMS. I know that's revolutionary thought for some but you can't continue to bury your heads in the sand forever!
