To the Editor:

Aug 222005

Hillel director Hedy Berman is quoted in yesterday's Collegian, responding to Israel's withdrawal from their illegal occupation of Palestinian territory, "It hurts my heart to see Jews being expelled from their land."

My question for these zionist religious-nationalist fanatics is, where does "their land" end. Many Israelis believe that Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon are "their land." North America was also colonized by white Europeans who believed that their god had granted them manifest destiny over obviously inferior dark skinned natives of another faith.

The Gaza pullout is an Israeli scam, while the occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank, with over 300,000 Jewish colonists, continues to spread unabated. Domination and disrespect will always inspire resistance.
