CFL Alert: More U.S. double standards in the Middle East

The current rhetoric coming out of Washington is demanding that Syria end its "occupation" of Lebanon. However, not a single word is being said about the decades-long illegal and immoral occupation of the Palestinian people.

CFL ALERT: MORE DOUBLE STANDARDS AS U.S. THREATENS TO IMPOSE SANCTIONS ON SYRIA AND LEBANON OVER "SYRIAN OCCUPATION OF LEBANON

TALKING POINTS
*The current rhetoric coming out of Washington is demanding that Syria end its "occupation" of Lebanon. However, not a single word is being said about the decades-long illegal and immoral occupation of the Palestinian people.

*Impending sanctions against Syria are indicative of the racist double standards in Washington against Arabs and Muslims. Tell your representatives that you support immediate diplomatic and economic sanctions against Israel for its repeated flouting of international law and U.N. resolutions. Tell your representatives that imposing sanctions against Syria while rewarding Israeli intransigence does not promote our interests in the Middle East and only works to strengthen the argument that a U.S./Israeli plan to redevelop the Middle East is being played out.

*Ask your elected officials why very few have spoken out against the recent incursions into Gaza, which have left hundreds of Palestinians dead, thousands wounded and even more homeless. There has not been a single condemnation by this government over the cold blooded murder of Iman Hamss, a 13 year-old schoolgirl who was murdered in cold blood by an Israeli soldier who emptied a full clip of ammunition into her body. Ask your representatives to explain these double standards, ask why they place such little value on the lives of Palestinian children and how they can look the other way while Israel continues its wanton massacre of innocent Palestinian civilians.
