Basking in their glory, the new ruling oligarchy from Obama down, will not have time to look themselves in the mirror to see their crimes!

Instead, I offer you Amer’s words, in a brave and deeply moving interview he did with Democracy Now yesterday. Amer’s interview can be viewed at:

Obama,unlike his predecessor,must realize that Israel, as an occupying force, will never last for long.History shows that wars had never been nor will be the source of peace.As president, he should personally pay more attention to the Palestinian plight, continuing for over 40years under Israeli occupation, and not to rely solaly on Israeli narrative.

Obama cannot be taken seriously on this issue without his mentioning of illegal Israeli settlements.  So far, he is not off to a very good start.

“Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all…and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave…a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils.”-George Washington’s Farewell Address, 1796

Obama has been delivering on his promises by bringing attention to the Middle East. Will he be able to change US policies in the region? Not until he stops listening to AIPAC.
