Support Those Who Dare Speak Out!


It takes guts to stand up to AIPAC and the Israel lobby. Most of our misrepresentatives in Congress, all but eight, lack the fortitude and integrity to do what is right, and there are risks, as New York's anti war candidate, John Tasini, an opponent of Hillary Clinton is finding out. Still, the fact that he won't back down from his consistent record of being critical of Israeli policy is commendable and he knows how to address the issue. He is the better candidate.

Even as Israel continues attacks on civilian targets in Lebanon and escalates its attacks in Gaza most of the opportunist politicians parrot the Israeli line. It's a travesty and it won't stop without our massive input letting them know that we object and will withold our support for such hypocrisy.

Many thanks for that article. If he makes it through to the primaries, Jonathan Tasini has my vote. I'm getting damned sick of Hillary's triangulation.
