Our support of Israel must stop



Why the hatred of the United States? Why has terrorism extended beyond Palestine and Israel?

Israel opened bidding for contractors to build 22 new homes in the largest Jewish settlement in Gaza. President George W. Bush shows an uncompromising commitment to the Jewish state.

The state of Israel is directly and indirectly responsible for terrorist attacks throughout the world. The United States' $10 billion military and economic support of Israel against Palestinian interests in the Middle East fosters hatred by all Arab nations against the United States. That hatred will continue so long as Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has our president in his hip pocket. Our support of Israel must stop.
