I’ve long been struck by the obvious parallels between America and Israel, both of which built their foundations on ethnic cleansing. Cliff Brown explores this theme in the following video: “Two tragedies: American and Israeli injustice”
Brown describes himself on his blog: I am a 61 year old American male who, as a teenager, cheered on the Israelis in the 1967 war.
What changed my views on Israel? I lost my ignorance of both history and current events in the Middle East.
I decided to educate myself instead of forming my views from received wisdom. Though I knew (and know) many Jews, I did not know one Palestinian. I made it my business to discover the truth of the Palestinian situation for myself as can anyone who has access to the Internet.
