Dear Mr. Romney: Palestinians are Poor Because You Stole from them and Kept them Stateless
Because Romney is taking the side of the billionaires in the far right wing Likud Party, he is an accomplice after the fact to the ethnic cleansing and continued expropriation of the Palestinians, whom he is helping keep stateless and without firm rights, i.e. in poverty. And yes, Barack Obama and the whole apparatus of the US government are complicit in continued victimization of the Palestinians; but I haven’t heard Obama say that the Palestinians’ problems are the fault of their “culture.” I doubt Mr. Romney is capable of reflection or shame, but this performance in Jerusalem are occasions for them.
