So, all 100 senators, what were you thinking?  Elizabeth Warren?  Bernie Sanders?  They were heroes in my book until I read this.  I know a resolution is not a bill – not a law, but a tactic used to drum up support and money for whoever drafts it.  This resolution does not mention reaching a peaceful solution – does not mention the suffering of the Palestinian civilians caught in the cross-fire – it simply reaffirms Israel’s claim to the land and support for anything they do to get it.

I wrote to senators of my like causes and told them I cannot support their endeavors any longer.  Stop the emails.  Stop the letters.  No more.  I’m done.
