Shame on Israel

The government of Israel is currently forcibly removing their citizens from the Gaza Strip in the name of peace with the Palistinians. Some of these towns date back to the 1946. Military soldiers are forcing their way into homes and carrying the residents out if necessary to get residents and non-residents who have flooded the area in protest. Once residents are evacuated by force, the homes will be razed. 70% of Isrealis support this pullout, but they have not lived in this area for years and feel it part of a roadmap for peace. Some roadmap, I suspect Mr. Sharon and company took a wrong turn somewhere around Tel Aviv.

For any government to forcibly remove it citizenry from their homes is wrong, there's no other need to state it. This is a miscarriage of justice and basic human rights and liberty. I don't make a case like this too often, but I urge you to write your Senators and Congressmen and urge them for the United States government to take action on this, up to and including withdrawing all aid from the Israeli government.
