I'm in error, and I stand corrected. God agreed with Sara in regard to Isaac's inheritance. I appreciate the knowledge, and responses, to my letter.
I tried to show a historical family relationship of discord between Muslims and Jews, but that wasn't the issue.
The issue is the unconditional U.S. funding to Israel while Israel occupies Palestinian land. Israel continues to demolish Palestinian homes for Jewish settlements in disregard to UN rulings.
The U.S. gives $3.5 billion of your taxpayer dollars to Israel every year. Without U.S. financial aid, the Israelis would have to settle with the Palestinians. Should the U.S. require Israel to stop settlement construction and withdraw to defensible, and recognizable, boundaries for continued US financial aid? That can be done without resolving the issue of displaced Palestinian refugees for now.
If, you agree, call U.S. Rep. Peter Visclosky and ask him to stop unconditional funding to Israel.
