AFT Has $300,000 in Tainted Bonds

On December 8, Antonia Cortese, Secretary-Treasurer of the American Federation of Teachers wrote back in answer to a letter from AFT member Stanley Heller noting that the AFT has two bonds of $150,000 each invested in the State of Israel Bonds.

In response to arguments that the AFT shouldn't be helping a government that is so vile in its human rights record she wrote, "The delegates to the AFT convention have consistently passed resolutions is support of the State of Israel".
