Listen to both sides and end this cycle of violence. Stop the illegal blockade of Gaza. Encourage the majorities of both sides to speak out against the minority extremists on both sides.

Stop the massacre of civilians in Gaza by the Israeli troops.

Please do all you can to effect an immediate Seize Fire. Please hold Israel accountable
for violating international laws. US should not be complicit with Israel.

If the stance on the Israeli side is as it was since the end of the 1967 war, and she is not going to be a full partner with Palestine, to allow a separate nation, and not interfering in Palestine by Israel in their politics and military. It will never work otherwise. Both nations need to stick to their sides and keep out of the business that is not going to destroy each other and keep the killing of innocent people on either side. If Israel, can't keep to their land, without building more settlements on the disputed land of Palestine. It will never be over and they will have to pay for what will come from the Apartheid System, it has created on the Palestinian people.

Israel is the Bully in this conflict!

We must lean [heavily!] on them to accept, or at least negotiate from, the 10 point draft agreement accepted by the Palestinians; which includes:
Stop the settlement expansions;
Stop the blockade on goods and passage to/from the East Bank & Gaza;
Open the sea to Palestinian fishing;
Open a seaport;
Open an international airport;
....

Simply, end the imposition of an "open air prison"!

Anyone who feels they have NO options, resort to violence!
Give them options!

End Israel's brutality and then end ours.

Crime against Humanity,is war crime. Israel has shown no mercy and use weapon that is ban and cause ungodly killings that surpass the Holocus .

I am embarrassed by my government: the US is like a hen-pecked husband and the Israeli government and its lobby the termagant wife. We do their bidding! Shame on Obama for no having no guts to stop the genocide and apartheid treatment of Palestinians.

We cannot provide universal coverage for the poor in this country but give billions to the Israeli government monthly.

The poverty and crowded conditions and the occupation is what is causing violence. Now with the murder of so many Palestinians , do you actually think you are not creating more terrorists? Now congress wants to send more tax payers dollars to Israel for defense. What are we going to do to help Palestinians? Aipac has too much power in congress, and I do pay taxes, and I am sick of the bias . Shame on the president! I had so much hope that he would stand up to the Jewish lobby!B

It is a gross misrepresentation to call the Israeli massacre of the Palestinian people a war, Israel is guilty of war crimes, end of story! The Palestinian people should have their own state, Israel must leave the West Bank and stop the blockade. The world must demand that the apartheid system Palestinian's are forced to live in - must stop immediately! Enough of this! Israel must be held accountable and so should the U.S. government for it's role in the massacre!

This war has got to end immediately!

This war had got to end.

I’m concern about the norm and value of our nation and wondering when on earth we stop pampering Israel’s insanity, and when our leader will stand up to save the humanity. As a leading nation, we should support the justice and democracy for all, but not only for Israel. Palestinians are human being too then why we are not stopping their slaughter by Israel. I wish the mankind’s future is not darker for our children. I wish our future generation could be able to lift their head high up to say that we have save the Palestinian race from dying out. Please bring the peace, harmony, and love among Israel and Palestinian people, and stop the flame of hate among them. No body, and no nation should be profiting on Palestinian and Israel conflict but only sincerely bringing peace among them, so they could live as two independent countries side by side.
Peace

I am ashamed of belonging to the same clan as the Israeli majority and I am ashamed for them! What on earth are they thinking when they are killing Gazans wholesale! Have they gone mad? Have they forgotten that this is the same racist mentality as tbat of tbe Nazis?
Shame on them!

How long can we just watch this injustice. Why does Israel get free weapons from US????

Israe's leaders should remember the story of the Golem and ask themselves whether they have let the Israeli state act as a Golem--an instrument of mere force, not justice-- in relations with their non-Jewishn eighbors, who have come to believe that force is the only language Israelis understand or respect.. Both Israelii and American leaders should recognize that the people of Gaza have good reasons to believe that. And they should ask themselves whether they have mistaken contempt and oppression for self-defense and come to worship a monster of their own making.

Please do not always try to please Israel, but be honest to yourself and the others and finally tell Israelian polititians to stop the aggressions towards Palestine! It is time to rememger the past where everybody, Jews, Christians as well as Moslims shared even their lives together...

What's happening in GAZA needs to stop--it's genocide!

Regardless of how many times and how many ways our government refers to the Palestinians as terrorists...no one is buying it. Stop condoning the slaughter of innocents in GAZA now!

Israel's apologists in the Congress & Senate (John Mc Cain & company, Eric Cantor was
known as APAIC's "errand boy") I am not sure what others say About Nancy Pelosi and
Debbie Shultz and Barbara Boxer but I imagine their labels reflect how those shameful
Zionist apologists sell out the American people and their' tax dollars daily to AIPAC and
Wall Street In Our Name. ) and those in the Zionist Right Wing Think Tanks in Wash, DC
( the bomb, bomb Iran and Syria crowd , (and anyone else who gets in their way) which
have thrown people out homes & fleeing their country while filling their own pockets and corporations) while they remain snug and propped up in their corrupt establishments.
(This must stop and we must all do our part in accomplishing this task. )

There is no way American tax payers should not be footing the bill for this injustice in
IN OUR AMERICAN NAME. The former US Howard Zinn , US historian chronicles a whole
century of how the US war hawks deceived the American people with the pretext of pro-
moting democracy abroad and national security at home. (Peter Hitchens pointed how
war becomes the vehicle for a structure of lies & government power grab on civil liberties
and tax payers monies from the Treasury. (see URLs below.)

Well, I for one am not accepting this corruption the abuse of power and the raiding of
the US Treasury in my American Name. I call upon such Zionist Entities & organizations
and Wall Street Groups (often one of the same) be banned from petitioning the US
government due to their corruption influence on our system of government. Further,
that Israel bring itself into line with international law and remove its illegal settlers from
the WB and E.Jerusalem and its Fascist like barricade from the Palestinian Territories and restore Palestinian rights or withhold all US military aid and funds to Israel. Dee

American govt. , the blood of innocent women & children are on your hands! Because, you send 3 billion taxpayer's dollars per year to Israel to support a racist regime. The Congress & Executive office . has no conscience nor backbone. Rand Paul, is one of the few politicians who has the backbone to say that he will stop all aid to the welfare state of Israel. And if he runs for office, he has my vote! Vote these Israeli puppets in Congress out!

And thanks to the Presberterian church for divesting in companies who do business with the Apartheid state of Israel.

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please do the right thing and demand a ceasefire from Israel. When looking at civilian casualties and arms it is clear to see this is a one sided fight, or rather genocide. I, a voting taxpayer, do not want my taxes supporting this terrorism and you have the power to stop it.

A ceasefire without any change in Gaza's blockade wont last long. A sustainable peace could only be achieved by end of siege and lifting of Gaza blockade by Israel.

Be a dove not a hawk. Be a peacemaker not a warmonger. Listen to your heart not Israel government.

Be a dove not a hawk. Be a peacemaker not a warmonger. Listen to your heart not Israel government.

Yes, US lawlessness and brutality that is sanctioned by the Zionist apologists in the senate
(Mc Cain& Graham and Boxer) and in the House (Pelosi, Boehner and Shultz-Wesserman &
Cantor) who sign off on the siphroning of US tax payers monies and weapons in their direct opposition to their wishes on the conflict. ..esp Israel's policies in Palestinian Territories....

In addition, to the Military Industrial Complex (the Wall St groups ) who are driving end-
less war and war crimes daily in defense of promoting their own bottom line across the
Middle East and into the Horn of Africa today. This is the lawlessness and immorality the American people and other peoples lives are caught up in daily and it must end.

Perhaps equally importantly, we must rein in the criminal mindset that drives US/Foreign Policies today--especially its Middle East /Israeli/Palestinian Policies. This is the shame of
the American people and it places them at risk for reprisals wherever they go....Dee.

This is a real disaster, but it is what bibi wanted. They always talk about 'Israel's right to exist"
but never mention the Palestinians the same. Bibi is not happy until he starts a world war. As for
Obama, I voted for this guy twice but i'm very disappointed because he talks a good line but he is the same old same old as all the old boot kissers . It is so sad, I feel that he should return the Noble Peace Price.

We owe our nation to liberate our congress. US congress is Israeli Occupied Territory. They can vote 100-0 to slaughter women and children but they can not agree on anything else that is for the good of our nation. When AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Com) give them the marching orders, they do not look back. What a shame, what a shame and the founding fathers would never have imagined, a foreign agnet lobby like AIPAC would have total control / choke hold on our legislative branch,
indeed we need to liberate our congerss.
Israel is a racist, system, they put more valaue on israeli life than Palestinian life, what do you call that. What is sad is US congerss agrees with Israel on this, look at the vote, I would imagine the peolple of Gaza are guilty of being a shade of brown too much for Israel and US congress to stomach

Please make peace at both the ends. NO HUMAN LIFE should be the target of political issues. It is the innocent civilians who are affected the most on both the sides.
