    I am. liberal, but stand firmly with Niki’ humane stand for Palestinian human rights. Those inalienable rights of every human being born into this world. B’nai B’riths fascist rhetoric is voiced out of fear that their long standing falsehoods will finally be exposed for what it is. Standing up for human rights for ALL people is just and moral. Thank you Niki for standing up for what you believe in. We the people support you.

    For far too long the rights of Palestinians have abused and stolen by Zionists settling in their land. It is surely time that agreement is reached that every human living in Palestine has the right to freedom and justice, not just Zionists.

    The conflict in Palestine can only be correctly addressed if we recognize that religion of Judaism and political entity which is Zionism are two separate entities

    Do victims of an European holocaust have right to conduct their own selfish imperialistic holocaust in middle east? Its not too different from the 2 SOBs [Bush & Blair] declaring an illegal war on Iraq and still walking free. HA!

    Niki, you have my complete and unconditional support on the issue of Palestine. You have told the truth about Zionist ethnic cleansing, apartheid and genocide. In contrast, the B’nai Brith statement contains numerous easily disproven falsehoods.
