    Actions have consequences. The Israeli government's barbaric actions Is leading people around the world to look at the current situation and history and questioning Israel's very right to exist. Further, it is not surprising that anti-semitism in all its ugly manifestations is on the rise.

    Israel has a right to exist, but so does the Palenstanian state/people.  The scorched earth policy that Israel is operating under is wrong and should be stopped.  Furthermore, Jewish settlers have no right to take over the Gaza area and push ot the Palestanians.  A two state solution needs to be implimented and each side needs to respect the other's territory.  Both sides are wrong and both sides need to stop the insanity.  What the hell did Israel expect when you oppress a group of people after so long of a time they are going to strike back.  So, both sides need to act like mature adults and work out a peaceful solution.  More killing on both sides will never bring any kind of peace to the region.

    Another 'Truth', whether you like it or not!

    CHILDREN, on both sides, ARE DYING AND TERRORIZED!

    Being kept HOSTAGE, as the Israeli children were, had additional challenges as relayed in the article below (though Palestinian children under a bombing umbrella probably have similar mental health conditions as well).

    Interesting CNN Films' documentary, 'Chowchilla', that explorers the lives of several Texas young school children who were kidnapped on a bus heading to school in 1976 and imprisoned in a trailer that was buried underground! These kids escaped with the help of the bus driver and one older child!

    But after some 47 years, those children/grownups, are STILL TRAUMATIZED!

    All children on both sides of this war will probably need a lifetime of help, whether they get it or not.

    SHIT!

    Chowchilla story ....

    The farcical hearings held by congress asking college presidents to refute 'antisemitism' was an abomination

    jewish diaspora were represented but no other association of international students or ethnic communities 

    Silence led to the holocaust

    silence again is allowing another genocide

    anti zionism, apartheid, land grab is NOT antisemitism

    Wow. Almost 1/2 of the people voted to kill off the Jewish people and state they do not have the right to exist.  I realize there are more terrorist sympathizers and nazi wannabes over the years, but did not realize it was almost 1/2

    If the poll was changed to Muslims or gays or Asians or blacks the same 1/2 of the people would probably vote the same for them as well as they are bigots

    I believe in my humble opinion, that a country only exists on its own merits. Israel is not an ally but a drain on our resources. It has attacked us before, stolen military secrets, and has conspired with our enemies. Therefore it is my opinion that the US not only deny Israel any further aid, but that it sever ties in an obviously lopsided deal. I think that it's "right to exist" is only by its own ability to defend its borders. We must let other countries and the world at large deal woth its own issues, especially considering the strain we Americans are under.

    If deeming one people's right to exist sacrifices another people's right to exist, then we have accomplished nothing. If a solution can't be found without colonization, oppression, and genocide, then we have failed our humanity.

    A people must stand or fall on their own. It is not our place to say who is worthy of staying. This was never our fight to interfere in, and butting in merely makes us look like a bully on the world stage.

    I can't wait for the day when we as a country focus on the issues here. We've got so many homeless due to insane housing costs, people who can't feed their children, a lack of funding for public and state employee salaries, and a mass shooting epidemic! We have so many other things to fix HERE. Let's do that first. Would love to see Congress and The House focus on our local problems, and to see our country stop typing to be everyone's hero. We've got a giant amount on debt as a country; I'd love to say we should be helpful to all countries, but I would rather us fix our own problems here.

    Israel has killed 30,000 Palestinians mostly women and children. 

    In the last couple days IDF solidiers have repeatedly murdered starving Palestinians seeking food. 

    There are 60,000 starving pregnant women and 70,000 injured.

    US complicity is the massacre of innocent must stop. 

    The half of a century belligerent, hostile illegal occupation must stop!

    I am writing to express my strong opposition to H.R.888, the bill reaffirming the State of Israel’s right to exist. As your constituent, I urge you to vote against this bill, as it oversimplifies a complex issue and undermines efforts to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.

    While I recognize and support Israel’s right to exist in peace and security, I believe that H.R.888 fails to address the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and perpetuates a one-sided narrative that ignores the legitimate rights and grievances of the Palestinian people.

    By unilaterally reaffirming Israel’s right to exist without acknowledging the ongoing occupation of Palestinian territories and the denial of Palestinian rights, this bill undermines the prospects for a negotiated solution based on justice, equality, and mutual respect.

    Furthermore, H.R.888 risks exacerbating tensions in the region and alienating Palestinians and their supporters who seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict. It sends a message that the United States is biased in favor of Israel and unwilling to uphold the principles of international law and human rights.

    As your constituent, I urge you to reject H.R.888 and instead support measures that promote dialogue, diplomacy, and a just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This includes advocating for an end to the occupation, respecting Palestinian rights, and supporting efforts to achieve a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 borders.

    Thank you for considering my views on this matter. I trust that you will represent the best interests of your constituents and work towards a more just and peaceful future for all peoples in the Middle East.

    Israel has existed for over 2,000 years, there are historical facts that support this to be true. Israel has a right to exist and to live in peace. To deny that would be to deny them that right and it would be to deny history. It is our duty to support their right to exist and to live peacefully. Stand with Israel's right to exist, anything less would not be acceptable.

    No more support for Israel!

    This is law is empty and meaningless. For decades Israel has received over a million dollars a day from the US while ignoring US's negotiated Arab/Israeli treaties.

    10 countries were in the UN court and all, including the Netherlands and Belgium, largely condemned the underlying policies of Israeli occupation and settlement that lead to what myriad rights groups allege is systemic racial discrimination and apartheid. Millions of Palestinians in the West Bank live without the same political and civil rights as their Israeli neighbors, while Gaza has weathered years of economic blockade.

    Israel stealing Palestinian property and treating them like prisoners w no rights caused Oct  7.  When they allowed people to settle that land they should have given them a T-shirt w a target. Shame on the Israeli's who chose to build their homes there.

    I am writing to you as a concerned constituent to express my strong support for legislation that recognizes and supports Israel’s right to exist as a sovereign nation. The state of Israel, since its establishment in 1948, has been a beacon of democracy and stability in the Middle East. It is crucial that our nation stands with Israel, affirming its right to self-determination and security amidst the complex geopolitical challenges it faces.

    Israel shares core values with the United States, including the pursuit of freedom, democracy, and peace. Supporting Israel not only aligns with our moral and democratic principles but also serves our national interests in promoting stability and peace in a region that has seen too much conflict.

    I urge you to support any legislative measures that reaffirm the United States’ commitment to Israel’s right to exist. This includes backing diplomatic efforts that encourage peaceful coexistence with its neighbors and ensuring Israel’s security against threats.

    Our support for Israel is a testament to our dedication to democracy, peace, and security not just in the Middle East, but around the world. I trust that you will consider this matter with the seriousness it deserves and will stand in support of Israel’s sovereignty and safety.

    Thank you for your attention to this important issue. I look forward to your response and to seeing your efforts to support legislation that upholds Israel’s right to exist.

    The Palestinian people were on that land first. It's not fair for Isreal to force their way in through violence. Yes, what Hamas did was horrible but what Isreal is doing is just as bad if not to a larger scale. We cannot support Isreal's murder and destruction. It is not antisemitic to demand justice and safety for the Palestinian people. A decision must be made without the unnecessary murder of innocent citizens.

    It is sad that it has to be said - but it has to be said. This statement in no way condones atrocities or encourages neglect of the necessity to insist on humanitarian aid and pressure on Israel's government to protect innocent lives in Gaza, nor does it contradict support for an independent Palestinian state. But until Israel is safe and antisemitism soundly condemned, progress toward peace and coexistence will continue to be blocked over very justifiable fears of attack. There can't even be a conversation until the world makes it clear that antisemitism and attacks on Israel will not be tolerated.
