No Way to Treat a child. Again, J Street finds itself on the wrong side

Ever the optimists, American Muslims for Palestine has proudly proclaimed that 20 of the 535 members of Congress  have signed onto a letter filled with spurious accusations against Israel.

Twenty of of 535 Congressional Representatives. Just under 4%. The signers are listed below.

The letter, introduced by Betty McCollum, a Democrat from Minnesota asks  "Does a life of utter hopelessness...directly contribute to the violence?" She's asking the wrong question.

The rampant abuse of Palestinians children by those responsible for their very safety- their parents and their government- goes unmentioned in the McCollum letter.

There is no mention of Hamas run summer camps, that teach soldiering skills to children as young as 12.

There was no mention of  incitement and glorification of violence in both the government controlled mass media and the social media, where brightly colored cartoon characters meant precisely to appeal to children encourage violence against the Jewish community.

There is no mention of the monuments erected to Jew-killers, or the soccer tournaments, streets and schools named after these murderers. There is no mention of the salaries paid to the families of those who kill. There is no mention of the Palestinian textbooks and school curriculum that demonize the Jewish people and deny their heritage.

The signers of the McCollum letter are missing a huge part of the story.

Incidentally, 17 of the 20 signers of the McCollum letter have been endorsed by  "pro-Israel, pro-peace" J Street, making it difficult to fathom just what they mean by claiming they are "pro-Israel".
