A recent headline states, "US supports Israeli oppression, Palestinians' # 1 enemy" - Jerusalem Post. As a former "American" and resident of the US, I would like to take a stand against this statement. I for one, with many behind me, do not support Israel. I can name many a friend, colleague, and others who do not stand for the Israel occupation of Palestine. In this group I can name many people of Jewish decent standing strong against the vacation Disneyland for Jewish adults. Oppressed people do not deserve to oppress others simply for a space in the dirt. It is absurd to think that the United Nations stands for the occupation of a peoples land in order to counter the violence that oppressed, killed, tortured, and remains in the memories of so many jewish descendants today.
To take simply because you and your ancestors were once taken from can not be justified by any means. To oppress the Palestine people and occupy their lands only makes you a follower of Hitler and less of a human being. What's the difference in killing people for occupation in the 1930's and killing people for occupation from 1947 to present? The jewish occupation of Palestine has continued much longer than Hitler's reign.
