Israel is imposing collective punishment on the residents of Gaza for the relatively minor crimes of Hamas.
This are the words of US Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota. He is the first American Muslim that has been voted into the Congress. On Tuesday 54 members of the House of Representatives signed a letter drafted by Ellison to President Barack Obama requesting that he increase pressure on Israel to lift the blockade of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
Written by representatives Jim McDermott of Washington and Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the letter accused Israel of imposing collective punishment on the residents of Gaza for the relatively minor crimes of Hamas.
The letter ignored the fact that the residents of Gaza, together with the Palestinian in Judea and Samaria, swept Hamas to power in the 2006 Palestinian parliamentary election.
Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to Congress, had earlier lashed out at his fellow representative for voting against the UN’s Goldstone Report, which accused Israel of committing war crimes during last year’s military response to ongoing Hamas rocket fire.
Ellison insisted that the Goldstone Report “only presents facts.”

That 54 members of the US Congress sign a letter from a American Muslim attacking Israel is alarming. That is more than 10 percent of the 535 federal politicians.
The support of the argument that Israel is the aggressor, shows that its just a matter of time before the majority in Washington turns against the Jewish state.
The Bible is the truth: All Jews shall return home to Israel, just before the second coming of the Messiah.
The American Jews will soon be in the same situation as the Jews in Europe in the run up to World War II. They did not want to leave their possession, and go back home to Zion. The US Congress is a sign that the hunters will soon enter into the political arena in the US. The Jews will be forced to leave, with only one place to go. The state of Israel.
But they will say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their forefathers.
“But now I will send for many fishermen,” declares the LORD, “and they will catch them. After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks. My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.
I think that that was really interesting. Good post!
