I am a native-born US citizen, educated here in the US. I have never been to Europe. I do not agree with anything Israel is doing in regards to the Palestinians, from whom they have stolen the lands the Israelis now occupy. Palestinians are just as much human beings as we all are and they deserve to have a home of their own.
Israel has no business tearing down Palestinian homes in their obvious racist clearances of the Palestinians from their ancestral home. They also have no business invading and setteling ever more deeply in Palestinian lands.
We in the global community need to push for international sactions against Israel--and this is the opinion of a very average American. The sentiments in the US are changing towards Israel, as we see that they are constantly upsetting the global peace! They are racists, demanding that we, the global community, constantly honor their pain over their past persecution, and yet they are now the persecutors! No more Jews died in the holocaust than did the Irish or the Scots during the clearances, and yet we do not see the Scots or the Irish wailing and demanding that we honor their pain. The Jews need to get over it! They are bringing global disrespect upon themselves.
