    Finally, a politician with integrity is doing the right thing. How long has this taken, and why isn’t the rest of our government supporting the abused in the world, starting with the most obvious, the atrocities in occupied Palestine? Didn’t we end that kind of abuse to human rights with the end of colonization and why is it in modern history?
