Palestinian-American writer explains why he will vote for Jewish candidate in US presidential election
Jamal Kanj writes:
… Today, American voters are left to choose between the lesser of two evils. The disapproval ratings of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump hover around 60 per cent. Possibly for the first time in American history, the new White House resident will be the least disliked of the two party picks.
In 2000, voters were faced with a similar quandary. They had to choose between the George W. Bush/Dick Cheney or Al Gore/Joe Lieberman tickets. Or else cast their votes for the alternative that had little or no chance of winning.
Three years later, it became very clear that “evils” flock together. To make the case for war, Bush’s greatest asset in the US Senate was none other than Gore’s running mate, Lieberman. The Democratic vice-presidential candidate who ran against the “evil” Republican was the most faithful warrior in Bush’s loyal “evil” army in the US Senate.
Hillary Clinton wasn’t far behind Lieberman. With her eyes on the White House, she proved to be an opportunist, voting in line with the sentiment of the majority of Americans who at the time supported the war. To be a leader, one has to be in front of the wagon, not behind it. Clinton failed her biggest leadership test.
Experience aside, Clinton and Trump are not much different: She’s wicked in politics, he’s evil in business. She supported unjust wars. He exploited workers and bankrupted businesses.
Jill Stein refuses to sell her soul to “evil doers” and financiers of US elections… She stood up to the American Zionist financiers of the two-party system: Sheldon Adelson who supports Trump and Haim Saban who backs Clinton.
That’s why in 2016, I refuse to vote for the lesser evil and have decided to cast my vote next November for the Jewish US presidential candidate.
Jill Stein refuses to sell her soul to “evil doers” and financiers of US elections. She speaks for millions of students who are overburdened by bank loans. Her Green Party platform advocates living wages for hard working Americans. She stood up to the American Zionist financiers of the two-party system: Sheldon Adelson who supports Trump and Haim Saban who backs Clinton.
Heads or tails, Zionist financiers can always count on a winner in the White House.
Stein is the only candidate with the courage to tell Israeli leaders that US taxpayers’ money will be contingent on peace talks. Unlike current and previous presidents, Stein promises to withhold US financial aid if Israel continues to flout American human rights values.
In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Stein warned Israel: “Home demolitions, occupation, assassination, apartheid” against the Palestinians wouldn’t be tolerated in her administration…
The worst that could happen in November is electing the less experienced evil. Unfortunately, Americans would most likely suffer as a result. But maybe short pain equals long-term gain. The bigger the evil in the White House, the better the chance is for no evil in the next election.
American should vote for the greater good, not the lesser evil.
