Against Our Better Judgement, by Alison Weir; Slingshot to the Juggernaut, by Sander Hicks
The September 2016 foreign aid package to Israel grants it $38 billion from the US, over the next ten years. In a recent poll, half of progressive and left-leaning Americans said Israel has too much influence on the US government. BDS and Black Lives Matter have recently given voice against Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. A recent FOIA request released the FBI’s own report on the four “Israeli movers” apprehended by police for celebrated the 9/11 attacks, in New Jersey. The Deep State 2.0 Panel points the way to a new path to peace in the Middle East: remove the massive funding from the US war machine, and it support for Zionist aggression. Fearlessly expose Israel’s and the CIA’s role in 9/11/01. End the racist demonization of Islam, and grant full statehood and human rights to Palestine. We reject the cliche that assume the Middle East will be at perpetual war, and that the conflict between Arabs and Jews is insurmountable. Peace in the Middle East will come when all sides have an equal common need to come to the table. We must parse out the Anti-Semitism in peace, anti-war and deep state politics, while being critical of Zionist militarism, aggression, and imperialism.
