    It’s about time somebody did something to support The Palestinian people who are suffering ruthless ethnic cleansing at the hands of the Israelis! They have become the very thing they abhorred…nazis. Also Israel should revert back to the agreed upon borders given to them after WWII.

    As a Jew and Israeli who cares about social justice and a safe, negotiated and fair peace between Israel and Palestine I thank Ms. Ashton for standing up for those issues. Bravo!
