Reconsider support

-A A +A
By Richard Foster

Dear Editor,

The United States should reconsider its support of Israel in light of the ongoing Gaza Strip war between Israel and Hamas.  The disproportionate use of Israeli force against Hamas was made possible by the United States. Israel is the major recipient of military aid from the U.S.

This support of Israel by the U.S. is criticized by Atalia Orner, a Jewish acadelnic at the University of Notre Dame. She says the result is that American occupation of Iraq is equated with the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory.

Since the Israeli occupation is such a sticking point in the Mideast, the Obama administration should press Israel to vacate the occupied territory. Jewish author Michael Lerner has suggested the same thing in an article in the National Catholic Reporter.
