A Letter to Senator John Kerry Concerning his Blind Defense of Israel
April 30, 2011
Senator John F. Kerry, Chairman
Re: Senate Foreign Relations Committee
Dear Senator Kerry
We have received your letter of April 4, 2011.
We must be honest and let you know that we do not agree with some of your ideas. We are hoping that you will read our letter.
In your second paragraph, "Israelis are rightly concerned about the Iranian nuclear program," where we do not agree is that Israel has no right to be concerned about Iran and nuclear activities when Israel has an extremely dangerous amount of nuclear weapons in existence at Dimona, Israel and it is frightful that Israel continues to go after Muslim country after country without conscience, also benefitting from the gift of three billion dollars that belongs rightly to America! Top that off with US-made armaments with which to murder its neighbors.
Also in the second paragraph, you mention that Palestine has a right to the creation of their own state. But, Senator, HOW do you propose that this be accomplished, when their properties have been reduced to tiny bandustans?
When our politicians realize that America comes first, and when they also realize that this economy is hurting only because of the many wars that Washington is waging currently, to please Israel, then will Washington and its bought and paid for politicians make sense.
Israel's occupation against the inhabitants of Palestine is sick and cruel
and based on racism. Please read our enclosures.
What are you doing to change things?

Israel: The rich parasite state

While the US economy is in the drain due to US-Israeli wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya – the Israel’s economy is booming.
A few months ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) irked the Zionist Lobby, when he told CNN’s Jewish talk-show host Wolf Blitzer that under crushing economic picture in the US, Washington needs to stop its billions of dollars of annual aid to Israel. Since its creation by the western powers, Israel has successfully sucked over US$3 trillion from the US taxpayers. Barack Obama in late 2009 approved an additional $2.77 billion for Israeli foreign aid in 2010, and another $30 billion over the next decade.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), the highest ranking Jewish member of Congress, has played down any talk of cutting foreign aid payments to Israel.
Most Americans believe that European Jewish settlers need their hard-earned money to makes two-ends meals in a place surrounded by anti-Semite, anti-American 300 million Arabs. But the fact is, while Israeli Jews receive 46% of total foreign USAID – they have the highest standard of living among its Arab neighbors.
In 2010 – the Zionist entity reported the highest numbers of billionaires (10) and millionaires (5900) in the Middle East.
The 2011 report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) proves once again that while the US economy is in the drain due to US-Israeli wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya – the Israel’s economy is booming.
Growing by 7.8% last year, the Israeli economy ranked fifth highest in growth among the world’s most prosperous OECD’s 34 members. Israel’s growth outstripped that of the United States, Britain, Japan, Germany and France.
However, the report also claimed that poverty is almost twice as widespread in Israel, 19.9% of the population, compared to the OECD average, 10.9%. The gap between the overall standard of living in Israel and that of the lowest tenth of the population was three times higher than the OECD average. In its latest release of data, made public April 12, the OECD reported that 39% of Israelis find it “difficult” or “very difficult” to live on their current incomes, well above the OECD average of 24%. How sad indeed!
Turkey is the only Muslim country among the OECD members.
In May 2010 – when OECD’s 32-member unanimously voted in favor of accepting Israel as new member of the ‘ZOG Ummah’. Benji Netanyahu was so excited that he called it a “seal of approval” of Zionazi policies against its neighbors: “Joining the OECD is like receiving a university degree. Just as it is significant to have a degree from the Technion, for example, when entering the job market, entering the OECD will open doors and provide access to many fields. It’s a seal of approval”.

Please share in their
honor so their sacrifices won’t be forgotten. Nor the memories, their
deaths, the crimes that killed them.
The list does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.
How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
