One thought on “August 1st: Day of action for Naqab

  1. this is not on the news in the u.s. or bbc, I don’t think.
    I sent a long email to Kerry today, about wisening up, and this land theft P Plan.
    I hid plenty to say, and tired of being played by Israel. Time for sanctions, nd to use leverage – can’t say now, but insisted on this P Plan being devastating.
    Said that Israel is making a fool of the U>S>> and it’s the fault of the U>S> for not doing what it should – hold back foreign aid, since all those military installations etc. probably funded in large part by U>S>
    Hope he gets to read this email, or it is passed along/ somehow doubt it.
    Have to stop Israel somehow. Stop the P Plan.
