By the way, yesterday I got a series of postcards from Americans for a Palestinian State, which are designed to be sent to U.S. legislators. Here is the text of the card:

Dear Senator[...]

In view of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict being a threat to World Peace, we request that all aid to Israel be redirected from the military and illegal settlements to the removal of the settlements and the establishment of a viable Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, or a unitary state with equal rights for all. Both parties should observe all relevant U.N. resolutions and international laws. Please support S. RES. 276.

Sincerely yours,
Please print
According to this organization, the financial cost of Israel for the American people is $155 Billion (direct aid and interest).
I think this campaign may be one way of helping the situation.
