I agree with your first demand, that Israel should be in compliance with United Nations Resolution 242 which calls for withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in the 1967 war. I took part in that war, and when it ended I hoped and expected my government to act generously and put forward a comprehensive and just peace proposal. I regret very much that this has not yet happened.
Finally, I have been on record for viewing the present state of affairs as a form of apartheid, that I strongly object to.
In view of all of the above, and in view of the complete failure of the United States Government to take a more constructive position, I am left with no choice but to support your initiative, for as long as the present injustice prevails.
