Every Democrat and every Republican is by definition pro-Israel; otherwise they are not funded by their party and soon are defeated in election. Israel is the American military base in the Middle East that exists to maximize oil profits and to do the bidding of US imperialism around the world. The 2 anti-Zionist Israel, pro-Palestinian parties are Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party. They need you now to stay on the ballot. You can register online at:
