7 thoughts on “Letters to Our Ruling Class (3): Protesting the Killings in Gaza

  1. Senator Menendez, tweeting a few hours before he met with us.

    No word on Israel’s targeting Gazan civilians, on Palestinians’ right of self-defense, on Israeli accountability for the killing of unarmed, non-threatening individuals, or on the possibility of Israel’s having violated the Leahy Law. No acknowledgement of the significance of the Israeli blockade of Gaza, and no attempt to clarify who initiated the current round of hostilities. Just: Israel is under attack, Israel needs to respond, Israeli security is paramount, and no other considerations are worthy of concern.

    I’d like to think we made a dent in that attitude. But just a dent.
