Veterans For Peace - Rachel Corrie Chapter 109 

The lopsided American foreign policy may seem to be in Israels interest, but it actually works to the detriment of the Israeli people.  Continued militarization of Israeli society increases the exposure of Israeli women and children to violence in their daily lives, and has helped lead the country to economic crisis.  At the same time, this unbalanced US foreign policy has devastated the Palestinians.  Americans of conscience must work to balance that policy in favor of a peaceful solution.  It is not discriminatory that Americans working for a just peace focus their attention on Israels occupation and take concrete steps to end it, like divesting from companies profiting from Israels occupation. -- Jewish Voice for Peace, Dec 9, 2004

Where is the world? Is it dead? exclaimed the bereaved mother in Rafah on Al-Jazeera. Before her, lied the lifeless body of her little child. from Why Boycott Israel
