U.S. two-faced with Israelis, Palestinians

Friend General (Ret) James David is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby (AIPAC and similar) on the US political system and media:

General David wrote:

My letter published in today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution after going through the normal censors and chopping block, insuring criticism of Israel is kept to a minimum.

U.S. two-faced with Israelis, Palestinians

It’s bad enough that the Israelis continue to build illegal Jewish settlements on confiscated Palestinian land, but we have learned that they recently evicted more than 50 people from their homes to move in Jewish settlers, after a court order in the settlers’ favor (“Palestinians evicted, Israelis in,” News, Aug. 3). Instead of getting tough with Israel, the United States continues to provide more foreign aid to the Jewish state than any other nation. We talk about equal treatment for all races, but look at what we actually practice. We have one standard for the treatment of Israelis. We have a second standard for the treatment of Palestinians. America has reasonably moral policies at home, but our foreign policy is as corrupt, hypocritical and violent as any of the dictatorships we love to look down upon, and occasionally bomb.

James J. David, Marietta
