I have been aware of the Nakbar since 1958. I have visited Isreal 3 time, and had several close Isreali friends of the first generation who sought an equitable peace. I am concerned about the ideological camp into which the Israeli government has fallen. This is because of it's negative impart on US welfare and the contradictions our lavish support of this regime creates between our stated national ideals and our practice. Like all Americans I am supportive of free speech.
