Even though my family background is Jewish, I don’t support Israel’s actions and I’m appalled by their aggression. Sharon’s attack on Arafat’s headquarters was an outright act of war. He should be trying to negotiate instead of attacking. They really need to get rid of Sharon as soon as possible and get someone more moderate who actually wants peace instead of war and is willing to negotiate. Israel reaps what they sow. More than 3 times as many Palestinians have been killed, and as long as Israel continues, there will only be more attacks on Israeli citizens. I don’t blame the Palestinians for fighting back – they’re completely justified in their actions.

The US shouldn’t be supporting Israel. We always look the other way when it comes to their human rights violations and slaughter of innocent Palestinians.
