Americans Vote Yes for Equality Between Jews and Non-Jews Inside Israel

Election day in the United States, 2008, will be remembered in most history books as the day
Americans elected the first African-American as president. But it also deserves to go down in
history for another reason. It was the first day when Americans rejected the instructions of their
pro-Israel politicians and newspapers and instead voted for the principle that non-Jews should be
equal with Jews under the law inside Israel, and not discriminated against as they are today in
apartheid Israel.
The Somerville Divestment Project (SDP) placed Question 4 on the ballot in two state
representative districts, one in Somerville and the other in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The
question asked, "Shall the state representative from this district be instructed to vote in
favor of a non-binding resolution calling on the federal government to support the right of
all people, including non-Jewish Palestinian citizens of Israel, to live free from laws that
give more rights to people of one religion than another?" The "Yes" votes outnumbered the
"No" votes 9,100 to 5,542 in Somerville, and 9,637 to 3,650 in Cambridge. If Obama had won by
this kind of a margin it would have been declared a Super-Landslide!
