Today, October 18, 2023, it appears that the US is moving further in the mess of the Middle East, taking the bait of the dastardly Hamas attack and healing to the Israel Lobby. Members of Congress (425 to date), signed on to a House Resolution 771 authored by Central Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, chair of the Foreign Relations Committee in the US House. The legislation is stalled until a new Speaker is chosen.
HR 771 Caption: Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists. Full text here.
LIV urges you to reach your Congressional Representative NOW. Your message is simple: "I implore you to call for a ceasefire and a de-escalation now in Israel. I'm counting on you to save lives and billions of US dollars for destruction, and to move forward with a two-state solution.
We know of no better voice of reason for the two-state solution and pragmatic peace than that of Professor John Mearsheimer. This 26-minute interview on October 12 also shares a perspective on Ukraine that should unite us all.
Last, we highly recommend you wrap your brain around the division with the GOP over US foreign policy in Israel. This 12-minute segment Glenn Greenwald's show is about the storm created by Tucker Carlson taking to task over-the-top bloodthirsty war hawks, Nikki Haley and Lindsey Graham. It will set you -- and all of us peacemakers -- free!
Get to work, you Texas independents. After you call your Congress member, stay tuned for a report about Vouchers and the offensive Defend Texas Liberty PAC.
