I am relatively new to this site, having been reading articles here daily for approximately 6 months. I am very appreciative of the contributors, that being the authors and commenters. It’s great to see that there are many others and many other Americans that are waking up to the reality in the OPT’s. Of course, I understand that this occupation and the crimes that go along with that has been going on for a very long time and sadly, while there are many Americans waking up to these facts, it is also quite clear that there are far too many that are uninformed. As a resident of Connecticut, USA, I value my freedom and right to self determination(to what extent that does exist anymore) and want to see nothing less than the end of the brutality of the continuous occupation in the territories. It’s utterly disgusting to me the reality of why this continues is primarily because of our elected officials here in the US and those representing the US at the UN. I am 31 years old and have come across this information(the reality in the OPT’s) through my own curiosity only in the past few years and I no longer can look at American politics the way I once did. I do not believe in the system the way that I once did because of the way the narrative is shaped here in our “free” media. I could continue to ramble but I wanted to say thank you to all of those who contribute to this site and the growing list of those doing work similar to this one. Thank you all and continue the fight for what is right for the Palestinian people!!!! I look forward to continue reading and contributing however I can, and informing those that are less informed than myself.
