Israel's critics must be self-hating Jews!
Former executive director of the American Jewish Congress (AJC), Henry Siegman, condemns Israel's excesses and crimes against humanity.

The AJC has long been described as one of the nation’s "big three" Jewish organizations -- along with the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League.

Henry Siegman was born in 1930 in Frankfurt, Germany. Three years later, the Nazis came to power. After fleeing Nazi troops in Belgium, his family eventually moved to the U.S. His father was a leader of the European Zionist movement, pushing for the creation of a Jewish state [in addition to the one that already existed in the Russian oblast].

In New York, Siegman studied and was ordained as an Orthodox rabbi by Yeshiva Torah Vodaas. He later became head of the Synagogue Council of America.

After his time at the American Jewish Congress, Siegman became a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He now serves as president of the U.S./Middle East Project. Over the years, Siegman has become a vocal critic of Israel’s policies in the occupied Palestinian territories and has urged Israel to engage with Hamas.
He has called the Palestinian struggle for a state "the mirror image of the Zionist movement" that led to the founding of Israel in 1948. In July, wrote an op-ed for Politico headlined, "Israel Provoked This War." Democracy Now! hosts Amy Goodman and Nermeen Shaikh sat down with him on July 29 -- in the midst of Israel’s offensive in Gaza. More

U.S. kills children
