Switch the money around. Israel doesn't need $14 billion. Give Israel the $100 million to move West bankers back to their land. The $14 billion to the UN to help it rebuild The Gaza.

Decolonizing and restoring the West Bank and East Jerusalem would probably cost a lot more than $100 million, but one could adjust accordingly. I hope you're well out there in the Hot Zone.

The house is well insulated. Electri bill for the hottest month was $214. Others were paying three times that amount. LED lights, etc.

Hard to believe that more democratic institutions are going to do much good. We have one of those and look at how our people vote, gerrymandering to one side. I know you hate to be scolded that we need to vote in more Democrats but that would t least be a start and we have a lot of trouble getting there. The political attractiveness of progressives here is not impressive.
