Help Build A Golden Rule Peace for the Holy Land

Subject: Help Build A Golden Rule Peace for the Holy Land

Dear Congress...etc,

The day might soon come when we should stop providing aid and support to Palestinians- but we are not there yet.

The men, women and children of Palestine still very much need American charity and foreign aid to survive, in hopes that they might be able to build a sovereign and secure nation state to live in peace and security alongside Israel:

Remember the Golden Rule. Treat people the way that you would want to be treated.

We need a Golden Rule Peace to once and for all stop the hate filled rhetoric, religious extremism, terror and cynicism which has been creating an escalation of divisiveness, bigotry, brutality, and obstructive stances.

Invest in and be part of a Golden Rule end to the conflict and a Golden Rule future for the Holy Land.

A Golden Rule Peace for the Holy Land, and a Golden Rule future for both Israel and Palestine will most certainly usher in a Golden Rule Age of diplomacy, dignity, decency, compassion, real justice, and true security where all people have a chance to be valued and productive citizens working together as equals- regardless of supposed race, religion or nationality.

A fully secular two state solution to once and for all end the Israel/Palestine conflict really is a very good investment- for everyone's sake.

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." Eleanor Roosevelt
