More, Not Less Pressure Needed
By Ramah Kudaimi


Response to Chicago Tribune's "Breaking Ties with Israel"

In his letter (“Breaking ties to Israel,” Aug. 17), Isaac Cohen cannot understand how the Presbyterian Church dares to divest from companies such as Caterpillar, which sells to Israel the equipment used to bulldoze the homes and farms of innocent Palestinians. He insinuates that these groups are more concerned with the “inconvenience” of Arab Palestinians then the loss of Jewish life. How can having ones home and farm, ones entire life, destroyed be labeled as a mere “inconvenience”? These organizations are taking the first courageous steps to ensuring that Israel be finally forced to live up to its human rights commitments. Now, when Israel is finally withdrawing from occupied territory, is the time for more pressure from such parties to guarantee a final solution to this conflict.
