Yesterday the UN upgraded Palestine to non member state, a status which will allow them to bring Israeli officials before the International Criminal Court. All the "progressives" in the US government including UN Ambassador Susan Rice, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Senator Chuck Schumer of New York are strongly protesting the decision. It has been a long standing "progressive" policy of the US Democratic Party to support Israeli apartheid. One more reason why I am not a "progressive." I support equal rights and national self determination for the Palestinian people.
