Second Letter – July 21, 2014:
Dear Congressman Nolan,
I wish to thank you for your response to the concerns I sent on July 17, 2014, regarding the situation in Palestine. As the violence continues and deaths of civilians escalate, I feel it is important to express my concerns again. This time, I am including a link to a balanced nonpartisan historical overview that compares the experiences of the Jewish people of Europe in the 1930s and 1940s with their treatment of Palestinians today: http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/israel_is_captive_to_its_destructive_process_20140714
As a nation, we often proclaim our commitment to human rights concerns, yet our tax dollars are supporting this violent invasion of a people walled into a ghetto with nowhere to hide from bombs and bullets! Once again I ask that you consider the gravity of this crisis and the loss of innocent lives. Please consider suggesting action to end U.S. financial support for Israel and recommend the imposition of strong sanctions against Israel. We have done this to Russia because of the violence in Ukraine.
Dr. Carol A. Hand
