What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Is Hamas the obstacle to justice for the Palestinian people?

Here is the crux of the problem when it comes to the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.

The apologists for Israel say:

"Hamas, the terrorist group, is part of the war machine. When they stop, the rest will."

This line of thinking is just not correct because Hamas could fold up and go away and the genocidal policies of the Israeli killing machine would continue just as before Hamas.

Ha
mas is not the problem; the right wing Israeli government's expansionism serving the interests of U.S. and British imperialism is the problem.

Get the United States, Britain and the Israeli right wing racists out of the picture and the Israeli and Palestinian people will work out a just solution to their problems.

If Palestinians and Jews can marry, live in the same house, sleep in the same bed and raise loving families they sure as heck can live together in peace in the same region.
