I’m very concerned about your stand against the self-determination of the Palestinians. They have been under an illegal occupation for decades. Their observer status at the UN, should be celebrated by all persons of goodwill.

I sincerely hope that the status of the PLO is elevated. Which you are quoted (bizarrely IMO), as saying that you are against.

This is certainly antithetical to human rights, which we — as a country — of course say that we resolutely stand for. An occupied population making steps towards autonomy, should be a laudable accomplishment in anyone’s playbook. And Israel has just freshly announced 3,000 new illegal settler homes, today! For shame!
