I live in Seattle; I moved from Portland in 2011, where I was a member of AUPHER. I am in solidarity with the people of Palestine because I am in solidarity with human rights and justice. I feel responsible as an American because the U.S. is complicit in Israel's crimes against the people of Palestine. I find the situation so amazingly surreal--international law is so easily overlooked and the amount of U.S. tax money that supports this Zionist project is astounding. I enjoy reading and learning from Mondoweiss and most of the intelligent commentaries; it gives me some hope to see light streaming through the insanity.
