President Obama should do as Jimmy Carter suggests, and recognize Palestine as a state, as many nations have already done. The plight of the Palestinians in recent decades is disturbing, and that recognition has not already been given by the U.S. government — despite it giving $3 billion a year in taxpayer monies to Israel — says a lot about how entrenched the corrupt AIPAC interests are.
The Empire Files has recently done investigative journalism on just how terribly lots of Palestinians are suffering in response to Israel’s occupation, an occupation that is illegal under international law. The video has been age-restricted not too long ago, but it is possible to bypass that using this link.
The Ralph Nader Radio Hour has also recently done a segment on Israel and Palestine.
