HR 34 : Are we pleasing the lobbyists or the people?

HR 34 : Are we pleasing the lobbyists or the people?

The question is about the House Resolution 34 which “barely mentions the human suffering of the Palestinians in Gaza.”

We are the most powerful nation on the earth and Israel is the most powerful nation in the Middle East, both of us can decide whatever we want. Who will question us?



  1. The Resolution is perfectly worded. The suffering in Gaza is solely the blame of Hamas and the Gazans who elected Hamas, the Gazans who shield Hamas terrorists, the Gazans who stood by as Gazan members of Fatah were slaughtered along with members of their families, the Gazans who still have not ejected the terrorists in their midst, the Gazans who destroyed successful greenhouses that the Israelis painfully left for them, and most of all the responsibility of those leaders and supporters of Hamas who refuse to accept the existence of Israel and prefer wage a continuous and suicidal war.

    The suffering of the Gazans is terrible, as is the suffering of those in any war. And it is needless. Instead of tormenting and terrorizing Israelis and wasting their own resources, Gazans could be building peace and an economy and lives and a future. Instead they've foolishly, tragically followed leaders who bring death and suffering upon them.

    If Islam is a religion of peace then it is long past time for Muslims everywhere to speak out against those Muslims that teach hatred, that promote war, that kill their own people. That is the path to peace. But is it a Muslim path?

  2. I saw Jon Stewart show and thought that it was the only voice of reason in this country.

    Thank you for standing up for what is right.
