    Oppose Israeli occupation of the West Bank, its ghettoization of Gaza, its targeted assassinations, its humiliation of the Palestinian people

    Niki Ashton, Keep speaking up and not be intimated. Ignorance is not fought with slander, but with critical unbiased inquiry. More public debate is required on the Israeli State policies and decisions. I invite everyone who is serious enough to know the truth to inquire on their own, remove bias from their judgement (specially bias to their own identities and versions of reality) to see and research for themselves.

    B’nai Brith may want to elevate their critical inquiry and see the validity of charges used to imprison hundreds to deter millions from standing up for truth and justice.
