An Open Letter to the People of Palestine:
My dear brothers and sisters in Palestine, my prayers are with you daily. I need to bring up a rather nasty reality here and, Iʼm certain that this reality has not been overlooked by you.
 *
As Freedom Flotilla II prepares to sail to Gaza, well maybe theyʼll get to sail to Gaza, the freedom sailors are beset with a world of difficulty. Most of that difficulty is the work of Israeli
subterfuge and US interference.
*
Binyamin ʻsquirrellyʼ Netanyahu is working his clandestine best to wreck Freedom Flotilla II. For the life of me, I canʼt figure out whatʼs got our buddy Bibs in such a snit. Maybe Bibs figures that if he canʼt stop this flotilla heʼll have lost the last vestige of legitimacy he might, on a good day, be able to claim. Trust me, our buddy Bibs is worlds of short in the legitimacy department. 
*
The world knows it. This letter is not about Netanyahu. You know full well the evil Binyamin Netanyahu works on Palestine. The President of these United States, one Barack Obama, managed to sermonize large on Palestine. The rights of Palestinian people. A “fair and equitable” peace for Palestine and Israel. You know, not too far back in the beginning to ʻterm Obamaʼ. Well, thatʼs mostly a load of blah blah blah at present. As you know, the proof for sermonizing is always in the pudding. Ergo, any Obama sermon is mostly bland and thin pudding if not outright gruel. And, one might not want a second serving of Obama gruel. 
*
So, Obama is about worked to a frazzle trying to do the bidding of Netanyahu and keep Freedom Flotilla II from reaching Gaza. The Obama diplomatic face, Hillary ʻschoolmarmʼ Clinton, has even cajoled the US State Department into intimidating and making threats on humanitarian workers planning to bring aid and comfort to Gaza. 
*
You see, ʻschoolmarmʼ Clinton likes to think of our world as her personal classroom and like the austere teacher attempting to mannerize an unruly class of juveniles, she would browbeat an
entire planet just to make her point. Of course the Clinton point would be, do as I say and not as I do and be amiable little peasants or weʼll bomb you back to Neolithic Hell. 
*
Clintonʼs State Department has been about the business of intimidation/harassment of pro-Palestinian Americans for quite awhile now. Clinton even got Eric ʻsilentʼ Holder to go after the
Humanitarian Law Project and Holder managed to garner 23 subpoenas that merely serve to highlight the sheer galling hypocrisy of US policy towards Palestine/Palestinians. By Clintonʼs twisted thought process, aid to Gaza is material support to terrorism. You know, as if Hamas and/or Palestinians were al-Qaeda. Uh-oh, I said the “al-Qaeda” word. Now everyone run around in circles, be afraid, take comprehensive leave of your common senses, and just act all knee-jerk and foolish. 
*
My point would be, Hillary the schoolmarm is NO friend of Palestine, Palestinians, and/ or real actual peace for Palestine and a just settlement to longstanding issues like the right-of-return and Iʼll not do a lengthy listing of Palestinian grievances. Yeah, there are many. Grievances.
*
Next up, the Imperial US Senate. Or as we living in the Homeland Insecurity like to call them, the good old boy network that turns a handsome profit for senators and not so much for us. 
*
87 Imperial US Senators co-sponsored a nifty little Senate Resolution numbered 185. SR185 lays the blame squarely on the Palestinian Authority and of course that icky Hamas for getting
all manner of “uppity” about a State for Palestine. A free and sovereign State. Wow, what a novel notion there boy. You see, the Imperial US Senate does NOT want Palestinians to be doing rash and foolish things like wandering off to the United Nations and submitting a petition for National recognition. Why, that would make matters almost unbearable for Bibs, Israel, and
of course that Israeli occupied territory lovingly known as- The United States Congress. 
*
SR185 “warns” that UN recognition of a Palestinian state harms the peace process. Okay, I need just a moment to run outside and spit. Laughing all the way of course. “Peace process?”  Really? What peace process? You see, at least 87 Imperial US Senators are so out-to-lunch as to be laughable. Can we all say, disconnected from the ʻreality-basedʼ community? I knew we all could.
*
87 Imperial US Senators also “demand” that Palestinians reconsider “their unity government agreement.” You must understand that a rather ʻbig wordʼ like rapprochement leaves at least 87 Imperial US Senators having to go poopy. (I stole that “poopy” schtick from Mr. Lewis Black. He is one funny man)
Now, I am just your ordinary run-of-the-mill absolute nobody. But, for Fatah and Hamas to sit down and work out longstanding disagreements is hardly the business of the Imperial US
Senate. It isnʼt. None of their darn business and the Senate has NO right to utter word one about any of it. The Imperial US Senate vomiting up SR185 does worlds of harm to any number
of innocent people AND that senatorial brain trust is too stupid (servile to Israel?) to hold even a  modest clue as to what it is theyʼre doing. I canʼt figure out what theyʼre doing and I live here. You know, in the Amerika. 
*
The bottom line for SR185 is the cast-in-concrete decision by the US to “veto” Palestinian statehood at the UN. Well and of course, cut off any monies that MIGHT get to the Palestinian
Authority. Ewww, more threats. Yeah, like the US actually sends money to Palestine that does NOT need Israeli approval. Oh thatʼs rich! SR185 has several more “warnings” and “failure to
comply will…” and “serious impact on US aid…” and blah blah blah sprinklings of banal blah blah blahs and so on ad infinitum. 
*
My Palestinian brothers and sisters, the good old US of A is not your friend. I know that, you know that, Israel is laughing at you and me as I write this. The Obama may in fact be any number of horrendous hypocrisies and demented bombings of innocent people in places too numerous to bring up here. Obama is no friend of Palestinians. Clinton is simply too evil to be working diplomacy of any sort. That state of affairs is so utterly futile as to be hopeless. It is disheartening, it is shameful, it is egregious on levels that are inhumane. 
*
Iʼve made my position known to any Obama admin flunky that I can find an email address for. My spouting off about injustice and Palestine get me about nowhere. Regularly. But enough about that for now. Howʼs the weather? 
*
Most respectfully yours,
Skulz Fontaine
