Letter to President Donald J. Trump re Palestine/Israel

The U.S. approving, almost 70 years ago – 29 November 1947 – the United Nations General Assembly adopted the plan for partition of British Mandatory Palestine, which recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States.  Almost 50 years ago, a result of the Six Day War was that the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem became Occupied Territories.  The Israel-Palestine conflict continues.

For information, ‘Granny Peace Brigade letter to President Donald J. Trump, dated February 7, 2017, on matters related to the Israel-Palestine conflict’ acknowledges the generosity of U.S. assistance to Israel, but draws attention to the need for recognition of Palestinian legitimate rights in a viable homeland, as well as for action for the securing of these.

Deeply concerned with this conflict over decades, after describing possible dire end results, Noam Chomsky wrote — the last sentence of ‘Fateful Triangle-The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians’ (1999) — “Such consequences need not come to pass, but they might, and if they do, privileged sectors of American, Israeli, and Palestinian society have a lot to answer for, in my opinion.”

    Thanks for the letter to “45” who, today (02/15/17), expressed his neutral position regarding Palestinian statehood while Netanyahu explained that all the land belongs to the Jewish People. He said that Jews are called Jews because their land is Judah…and equated it with the identification of other ethnic groups and their countries. Polish/Poland, Germans/Germany, French/France, etc.

    Keep on keeping on, fighting for the rights of the Palestinian People and all Peoples, for that matter!
