  1. what can one say, the only way to impact government officials here in the states is with a march on washington.

  2. Ben: Yes, I agree. Let’s put Dems and Repubs. on record as to whether they’re willing to prevent Bush from making mischief in Iran like he made in Iraq. Then, if he does so (God forbid), we’ll hold their feet to the fire & make them explain why they voted against reining Bush in when they had a chance.

  3. The role of AIPAC:

    November 10, 2010 – Speaking from Indonesia, Obama told reporters that he was “concerned” over Israel’s decision to build 1,300 new settlement homes in east Jerusalem, a flashpoint in the ongoing peace process, the AFP reports. According to the news service, Obama told reporters that, “This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations.”
    “I’m concerned that we’re not seeing each side make the extra effort to get a breakthrough that could finally create a framework for a secure Israel living side-by-side in peace with a sovereign Palestine,” Obama added. He re-affirmed, however, that he would continue working on the peace process, despite its fragility.

    November 15, 2010 – ’U.S. President Barack Obama has praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.’
