[M.],

Thanks for your message. But as a Jewish American — whose government gives Israel $3 billion a year to bomb, shoot and otherwise inflict “hate” on Palestinians — I cannot remain silent.

The underlying principle was eloquently stated by Martin Luther King Jr. in voicing his opposition to the Vietnam War.* (And isn’t it to stand up for the dispossessed that we work at Legal Aid in the first place?)

Fortunately, such free speech is contractually guaranteed to all union members at the Society. To avoid unwanted messages, you can set up an individual filter in Outlook, or ask ALAA to remove you from the union e-mail list.
