Obama`s Warns Israel: Freedom, Justice and Statehood

Obama`s Warns Israel: Freedom, Justice and Statehood

By SOP newswire2

A Warning from President Obama to the Israeli government; to AIPAC the American Israel lobby; to the CFI the Conservative Friends of Israel and other pro-Israel lobbyists.

`The Palestinian people`s right to self-determination and justice must also be recognised. Put yourself in their shoes. It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, and lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements of her parents every single day.`

`It is not just when settler violence against Palestinians goes unpunished.` `It is not right to prevent Palestinians from farming their lands; to restrict a student`s ability to move around the West Bank; or to displace Palestinian families from their home.`

`Just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land.`
