Israel and Palestine - who is the problem?

More than 10 times as many Palestinian children as Israeli children have been killed since 2000. More than 4 times as many Palestinian civilians as Israeli civilians have been killed since 2000.

Israel holds over 5000 Palestinian political prisoners; Palestine holds 0 Israeli prisoners. Israel funded Hamas in its inception
and then Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Olmert admitted they continue to fund Hamas.

The antiwar movement is back in the streets.  Thousands marches in New York on April 9 and April 10 in San Francisco.  These demonstrations represented an important step forward for UNAC and the antiwar movement as a whole.  The antiwar movement has been in a lull since before the election of Barak Obama as many hoped the change in administration would mean an end to the wars.  We are now in a rebuilding phase and UNAC has made it clear that the rebuilding of a new antiwar movement is our goal.  The new antiwar movement needs to oppose the US foreign wars but also defend the domestic victims of the “war on terror,” the Muslims who are being attacked.  It must connect to dots between the money spent on war and the attacks on unions and cuts to education and needed programs.  It must also stand for justice for Palestine. This is what these demonstration on April 9 and 10 did.
