Letter: Halt military aid to Israel
August 06, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Prime Minister Netanyahu continues his non-stop diatribe of the Palestinians unleashing his arsenal of weapons of mass destructive on innocent civilians, boasting of their pinpoint accuracy. One can only assume that innocent men, women and children are his intended targets.

To intensify the misery and pain, the IDF has deliberately destroyed much of Gaza’s infrastructure including schools, hospitals, mosques, water treatment plants, sewage plants and its main source of electricity. Many U.N. refugee shelters have also been deliberately bombed in spite of the fact that the precise GPS coordinates of the buildings were well known to the IDF.

The trigger that unleashed the current violence was the death of three Israeli teenagers; Netanyahu accused Hamas of the murders but offered no proof. The accusation was a desperate attempt by Netanyahu to decouple the united government of Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. It has proved to be a total failure. The ongoing genocide has served to unify Palestinians against Israel’s decades old occupation and siege of Gaza. What has infuriated Americans is the derision heaped on John Kerry effort’s to broker a cease-fire. I urge concerned readers to contact the White House and the lawmakers and demand an immediate halt to military aid to Israel which has become an increasing liability.
