Today's news follows our Special Coverage Topic
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.
