U.S. needs to hold Israel accountable
The article, "Jewish population hits new high in West Bank," (July 27) states that 350,000 Jewish settlers now occupy the West Bank, as well as nearly 300,000 in the occupied East Jerusalem. Israel is in violation of international law, the 4th Geneva Convention and the U.N. resolution 242, and it is condemned around the world for its brutal occupation and oppression of the Palestinians. In addition, Israel continues to maintain a strangulation blockade on the civilian population of Gaza, causing the Vatican to accuse Israel of turning Gaza into "a giant prison camp."
