I am a Jew and I am outraged and ashamed by the acts Israel has perpetrated. I am not a self hating Jew, not an anti-semite, as some religious extremist Jews have accused me and other Jews who criticize Israel.
I am a Jew who knows right from wrong, who can see that the band of evil idiots in Israel who are making decisions are doing the wrong thing, doing things that are bad for the Jewish people. I stand up now declaring that Israel does not act in my name. AIPAC, the lobbying group for Israel does not act in my name.
I was ashamed and outraged when Israel attacked Gaza, killing over 1000 innocents. I told my son it would be like him throwing a balled up peice of paper at me and me coming back with a hammer smashing him in the head and face repeatedly.

Congressional Candidate Tasini Calls on U.S. To Condemn Israeli Attack on Gaza Peace Activists
I speak out not just as a candidate for public office. I speak as a Jew. I speak out as the son of a father who was born in Palestine, and who fought in the Jewish underground. I speak as someone who has had family members killed in the decades-long conflict, and who has lived in Israel and witnessed violence first-hand.

Grief, Horror, Commitment to Act: Responding to Israeli Navy killings of civilians in ships on the high seas
This morning (Monday, Memorial Day, May 31, 2010), I awoke to news reports that the Israeli Navy had boarded and fired on six unarmed small ships, bearing civilians from many countries, in international waters approaching the coast of Gaza, carrying humanitarian supplies for Palestinians who have been suffering an Israeli blockade of many (not all) civilian goods.

America’s Complicity in Evil
Once again the US government has permitted the Israeli state to murder good people known for their moral conscience. The Israeli state has declared that anyone with a moral conscience is an enemy of Israel, and every American president except Eisenhower and Carter has agreed.

What if Iran had carried out the Gaza carnage?
From the very beginning, it was clear that the establishment of the regime of Israel would be tantamount to insecurity, anxiety and disorder in the Middle East. Now Israel is expanding the frontiers of its aggressiveness and one can easily foresee the days when the European and American civilians are massacred by the Zionist regime, such as we witnessed in the flotilla case.

Dazed and confused
All the separate pieces of bad news are all related to our corporate-military economy supporting our debt-burdened, easy energy, consumptive life style.
