Free Palestine! Israel is a

Free Palestine! Israel is a terrorist state. Period.
It is depressing to hear about these tragedies in Palestine year after year. An it is all over the news, especially on KPFA and Democracy NOw, everyday. Its good to be informed and understand the issues. I am not in the States. I dont know what nonsense they brainwash America with concerning these issues--I know it is all in favor of Isreal and to support Palestine is a racist slur--apparently--but i wonder if the mainstream news is covering this conflict as much as KPFA...if so, what is the US doing in the world NOW that it doesnt want us to know about? What terrible terrible things is th eUS doing NOW, while we are distracted with Israel and Palestine? What I am saying is: to what extent does ISrael and the US manufacture these conflicts to distract us from some extremely terrible things they do elsewhere--other crimes against humanity or destruction of constitutional rights. Look here, dont look here. The fundamental principle of magic. And we are all looking. I am worried. Could you please address this on Dem NOW! Please look into something we are missing while we all stare at this horrible spectacle.

While listening to the side

While listening to the side by side stories of Ukraine and Gaza, I was struck by this irony; many of the people on your show have commented on the history of the Russian Jews in the are and the overt anti-semitism displayed during the events in Kiev leading up to the Crimean referendum to break from Ukraine. If anyone critizises the Israeli government we are called anti-semetic. However we are being called on to support a country that has anti-semetic views by some people. I fell taht we need to stop ALL military aid to all conflict areas in order to deesculate and keep civilians safer.
