For more than three generations, the Israeli government has been holding more than one million Palestinians captive while pretending to be searching for an acceptable “two state” solution. Ignoring United Nations directives, Israel has steadily been absorbing, dividing, walling off, and otherwise undermining the Palestinians. Today, with the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem, the long charade has come to an end. To celebrate their victory, the Israeli army has killed three score Palestinians and wounded an additional two thousand. It is only appropriate that the celebration should be graced by the President’s son-in-law.
This is not my country.
