Obama, Israel and the Continuing Occupations
Robert Fisk, a hero for real, wrote a lucid piece recently about Obama and the illegal occupation of Palestinian land by Israel. The piece also touches on The future of Iraq, which is bleak, to be sure.
The link to above is to Obama's recent speech to AIPAC (who I've talked about before--some of their members are on trial for passing US Security/War plans to Israel). They are the policy organ for Israel in the US, and every president, Republican and Democrat alike, takes direction from them.
The speech is about 36 minutes long, which is definitely too much for my stomach to handle, but if you have a little time, check out some of it.
I can't help but to wonder what the hell he means when he says: "we must mean what we say when we speak the words 'Never again.'"
The evidence abounds. It is happening. Again.
