U.S. dollars supporting illegal Israeli actions

The Nasser family has owned property in the occupied territory of Palestine for several generations and has the documents to prove it. The farm is called the “Tent of Nations” and the sign welcoming guests says “We Are Not the Enemy.”

This Christian family has survived numerous attempts by Israel to confiscate its land.

It is surrounded by Israeli settlements. Israel has just sent bulldozers in and torn up 1,500 fruit-bearing trees and reduced the terraced land to rubble.

In the United States, this is considered trespassing on private property and destruction of personal property. It is a crime.

American tax dollars support this unlawful action to the tune of $3 billion a year. Israel receives more aid from the United States than any other country in the world. We have the financial leverage to hold Israel accountable. Use it.
