    Ruth Zalph: The U.S. role

    As a Jew, I am distressed by the frequent fighting between the Israelis and Palestinians. We must recognize our own role and responsibility giving Israel over $3 billion in military aid annually – aid used to prolong Israel’s illegal occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
