US Congresswoman proposes cutting Israel aid "US Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has proposed the US cut military and economic aid worth $3 billion a year from Israel in response to the re-election of Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister...." "Ocasio-Cortez’s view on Israel and Palestine have received extensive media attention. "The Democratic candidate expressed her support for the Palestinians during the Land Day protests in Gaza in which 135 Palestinians were killed by Israeli occupation forces and a further 13,000 were injured. "'This is a massacre,' Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "'I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such.' "'No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else.'" One hundred years ago a movement of European Jews known as Zionism began calling for a colonization of Palestine. Their goal was to create a Jewish majority state in historical Palestine. At that time there were ten times as many non-Jews as Jews living there, and both factions coexisted with much less violence than we see today. With an imbecilic fascist in the White House, Netanyahu and other racist, Israeli Jews may decide to finish the job their ancestors began a century ago; if so, they deserve no help from the US or its puppets in the region.
