The article "Britain's Cameron calls Gaza a prison" (July 28) quotes Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron: "Let me also be clear that the situation in Gaza has to change ... Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp." World leaders and international aid groups continue to condemn Israel's starvation blockade of the civilian population of Gaza, calling on Israel to end, not just ease, their blockade.
Unfortunately, the U.S. continues to finance, arm and give political support to Israel, due mainly to our politicians' fear of confronting the powerful pro-Israel lobby. It is time for America to join the rest of the world and demand an end to Israel's blockade of Gaza and an end to Israel's brutal occupation and oppression of the Palestinians. Anything less is unacceptable.
