The root of the turmoil in Israel

SPECIAL COVERAGE TOPIC

 

The SeniorArk.com editor is Christian, a member of the Presbyterian Church. But we are deeply concerned about the 60+ year oppression of the Palestinians by Israel, and will from time-to-time call attention to this immoral and criminal behavior. Israel's illegal and immoral treatment of Palestinians, and the daily theft of their homes and land, must end. These 'crimes against humanity' need to cease. Compare the way the Nazis treated the Jews, and there appear to be similarities with what is happening to the Palestinians in 2015. We Americans are giving billions $$ to aid and abet Israel in this treatment.   We urge you   to do the research, and compare for yourselves. Then, let your feelings be known to your Congressional Rep, your Senators, and the President.
