If Gary Ackerman thinks he’s helping anyone in Israel out with statements like this, he’d better think again:
“I do not support a settlement freeze that calls on Israeli families not to grow, get married, or forces them to throw away their grandparents. Telling people not to have children is unthinkable and inhumane.”
This is ridiculous. If Israeli settlers want to have kids and need a bigger house, they can do what people in America do: move. Nobody has a God-given right to build an extension on their house, as people in Cape Cod will be happy to tell you. You especially don’t have a right to build an extension on your house if you’re squatting on land that doesn’t belong to you. And if you’re squatting on land that doesn’t belong to you in a fashion that drives the people you stole it from to engage in guerrilla warfare against your country, you should leave, not build an extension on your house.
Ackerman needs to ask himself the age-old question: is this good for the Jews? Is it good for the Jews to have fanatical theocons stealing more and more land from Palestinians? No. That’s not good for the Jews.
