"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-(intelligence)-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

Solutions Smith was critical of the United States' aid of Israel throughout the last century. He said the U.S. has vetoed any security council resolutions in the United Nations that would have an effect on Israeli behavior. He suggested the only way to reach unity would be by the U.S. cutting off military aid and to boycott all "complicit Israeli corporations." He supports the Palestinian BDS Movement, which stands for "boycott, divestment and sanctions." "Our government should cut off all military aid to Israel until they meet three fundamental demands of international law. First, that they end their 52-year military occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Then, to grant full equality and citizenship to the Palestinians and that they respect the Palestinian right to return (to their homeland)," Smith outlined. Smith was asked by an audience member whether a two-party solution or a democratic state would best fix the region's problems. Smith said he does not believe a two-party solution will work to obtain peace in the region because it would deny the "second class status Jim Crow status of the Palestinian people and their exile." "I do think a democracy over the entire country is the only logical (solution), and I ultimately think it's what's going to happen," Smith said. Link To Full Article
