Ceasefire & Release All Hostages

It’s National Novel Writing Month, and I forgot to publish this days ago. It’s a letter I sent to my senators, President Biden, and Vice President Harris.

My sign at the Women’s March 2017

(According to Democracy Now! this morning, there’s been a truce.)

The Israeli government and Biden claim Hamas has secret headquarters under Gaza hospitals — but they supply no evidence. Meanwhile, the people dying aren’t Hamas terrorists — they’re vast numbers of innocent civilians, including children. Like all war, this is evil, stupid, and insane. It must stop, and the U. S. must stop supporting it.

Netanyahu is Israel’s Trump. He’s evil, and so is his fascist government. Publicly he pretends to be anti-Hamas, but he’s their ally. He does nothing good for Israel.

I’m part Ashkenazi — Jewish enough for neo-Nazis to want to murder me. I’m disillusioned with the ADL now that I’ve looked into it — and now that Jonathan Greenblatt insanely praised the antisemitic Elon Musk, of all people. I will no longer support ADL, an organization that isn’t progressive and claims that criticizing the Israeli government is antisemitic. That’s a falsehood, especially when it’s Netanyahu and his fascist government. Stop listening to ADL and Jonathan Greenblatt and instead listen to Jewish Voices for Peace.

Another thing: Biden is jeopardizing his re-election by supporting the bombing of Gaza. If the Orange Menace of Putrescence returns to the White House, what democracy we have will be gone. This is an utterly horrifying possibility.
