Israel should be removed from City Council statement on police training -- Joel Leyden

We are not a perfect army but we do provide basic respect with all we come into contact with. We do not indiscriminately shoot civilians. In fact we risk our lives at security check points and on our borders not to injure and or shoot civilians as Hamas and Hezbollah use civilians as human shields. I implore you to rethink the resolution that you and the Durham city council just passed.
