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

ICH: The Israel Lobby vs the First Amendment By Ramzy Baroud. The adage goes, “Be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it.” Indeed, this is the very predicament in which the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) could soon find itself. In its obsessive efforts to defeat the Palestinian-led boycott movement, AIPAC will soon force the re-visitation of a long-dormant debate on the illegal Israeli military occupation of Palestine.

ICH: ICH: Attack Venezuela? Trump Can’t be Serious! By Ron Paul. There is something unsettling about how President Trump has surrounded himself with generals. From his defense secretary to his national security advisor to his White House chief of staff, Trump looks to senior military officers to fill key positions that have been customarily filled by civilians. He’s surrounded by generals and threatens war at the drop of a hat.


ICH: Chomsky, Pilger Slam Trump Threats Against Venezuela. The progressive intellectuals say Washington’s military threats against Venezuela must be stopped. By teleSur. The decent world must stand with Venezuela, now subjected to a virulent propaganda that is war by media


ICH: Military Control of the Civilian: It’s Opposite Day in America By W.J. Astore. It’s becoming increasingly difficult for Americans to recall that civilian leaders are supposed to command and control the military, not vice-versa. Consider an article posted yesterday at Newsweek with the title, TRUMP’S GENERALS CAN SAVE THE WORLD FROM WAR—AND STOP THE CRAZY. The article extols the virtues of “Trump’s generals”: James Mattis as Secretary of Defense, John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff, and H.R. McMaster as National Security Adviser. The article presents them as the adults in the room, the voices of calm and reason, a moderating force on a bombastic and bellicose president


ICH: When All the World’s a War… And All the Men and Women Merely Soldiers By Rebecca Gordon


Youtube: Hannity Blasts The Dishonest Media | Hannity Opening Monologue          {A section of the American public, some of the representatives and the mainstream media proved their bigotry and ignorance of knowledge of human evolution from the Hunter-gatherer wild stage of evolution into the Homo sapient stage of logical, rational and analytical judicious stage of intellect and knowledge. Statues and other landmarks of human progress serve as a constant reminders to judge how far we progressed from immaturity of intellect into its prudent state of knowledge and wisdom. They remind us how prudently to avoid our past mistakes not serve us as guidelines. The second and first world war and the blast of atomic bomb on Japan, the loss of human lives and the destruction of valuable properties should serve as a constant reminders to opt for peaceful coexistence and revolt against wars. Why don’t we apply to the same to the statues of confederacy? Why don’t we use those statues as a constant reminder to denounce prejudice, bigotry and vicious conflicts? Or has America lost its wisdom and sanity?}

LiveScience.com: : People Aren’t Smart Enough for Democracy to Flourish, Scientists Say by Natalie Wolchover

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.
