Criticism Does Not Make One Unpatriotic
In the interest of stability in the Middle East, I think the US government has a duty to criticize Israel for some of its literally outlandish actions. One example: the so-called security fence is a high, thick wall, built not on the border, but well within Palestinian territory. This amounts to land confiscation as several entire villages are on Israel's side of the wall. In other instances, Palestinian families find their home on one side of the wall and their orchard on the other. They need a permit to get to their own land. Your tax dollars pay for this. Are you concerned? Can this be the way to peace?
