A special gathering of Democratic Party House members discussed Israel-Palestine… here’s what they said.
With the recent surge in violence between Israel and Gaza, it is important to examine events of the past year and to learn the chronology and details of the recent deaths among both populations, unlike the Israel-centric reports prevalent in mainstream media….
