I hold these truths to be self-evident: that all people (including Palestinians) are created equal, and they are endowed with (i.e., born with -- they don't have to negotiate for them) certain inalienable (cannot be taken away) rights, that among these rights are LIBERTY. The Palestinians are entitled to human rights, and that the Jewish people of Palestine/Israel are entitled to the same rights. Those rights can be realized in whatever way the Palestinians decide -- self-determination (i.e. two-states) or equal rights in a bi-national state, or if they prefer, they can immigrate to Dearborn. It's not for me to say. I am an American and responsible for what my nation does. What is for me to say is that my country should not support Israel, because it is not a democracy; Israel is using my nation's moral sanction and weapons to subjugate another people. I have a responsibility to oppose that.
