APPAF Newsletter 02-24-2018

February 24, 2018

Dear Friends
Jordan as twin sister of Palestine and without natural resources survives on foreign donations, begging for US monetary support, and mercenary services to whomever needs it.
How do you envision a Palestinian state can survive: certainly wailing, complaining and begging cannot support a Palestinian state? Sympathy and support to Palestine cannot last forever. The international support will soon evaporate. Israel managed to ride the US horse. Arabs are not reliable sympathizers or supporters.

There is no real diplomatic or economic hope to solve the Palestinian-Israeli problem under the current Middle East Israeli-Arab circumstances. BUT President TRUMP expressed his intention to solve it against all obstacles. Let us hope that he can do it. HOWEVER, he will need tremendous American and Worldwide encouragement and support.
Several US administrations showed interest in solving the Palestinian-Israeli problem without success. Whether you like Trump or not, whether you support him or not, he is now the president of the United States of America. He is in the decision-maker seat.
Let us rally and unite the forces of “We the People all over the World” to encourage President TRUMP to translate our activism into a positive, peaceful constructive conclusion as the most logical equitable way: the American way
Please read and sign the petition. Ask your family members and friends to sign it. We may have a chance to succeed. This PETITION is not only for peace-loving Americans to sign but also for all peace-loving people from all over the world. Please circulate to family members and friends.

STOP, DEFEAT THE LIES
YES, YES, YES THERE IS A VALID, TESTED, TRIED and WORKABLE SOLUTION for the Israeli-Palestinian IMPASSE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS FALSELY ASSERTED and DECEPTIVELY PRPAGANDIZED
Please click the Petitions address to read and ………. sign

Counterpunch: Capitalism as Obstacle to Equality and Democracy: the US Story Posted By Richard D. Wolff           {Capitalism is the motor of excessive greed and predation and war and the obstacle to peaceful coexistence}

A well-educated and informed public is best equipped to practice democracy and to hold its representatives responsible and accountable to answer and protect its needs.
This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator
It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
