Nearly all Democrats of note have expressed unquestioning support of Israel’s insanely over the top “response” to so-called “terrorists” in Palestine. Not my man Kucinich.
He’s not only condemned it, but has referred to it as “disproportionate, mass violence” that is a “violation of international law” that Israel is not exempt from.
Kucinich likened the Israeli attacks on Gaza to its war with Hezbollah in southern Lebanon in 2006. In both cases, he said, civilian populations were attacked and “countless innocents” were killed or injured.
“All this was, and is, disproportionate, indiscriminate mass violence in violation of international law,” Kucinich said in a statement. “Israel is not exempt from international law and must be held accountable.”
It does my heart good to hear an American politician publicly condemning Israel. It has killed over 300 people in three days (compared to one death in the entire history of rockets being fired into Israel). It’s planning a ground invasion soon and has declared that Israel will continue it’s assault against Palestine until “the bitter end” and that the worst is yet to come.
