An Open Letter

To: Sen. Cruz, Pres. Biden, Rep. Cloud, Sen. Cornyn

From: A verified voter in Bastrop, TX

May 31

I'm incredibly curious what the U.S. State Department considers a "major military operation" since Israel's ongoing massacres and war crimes in Rafah don't count, aren't you? When people use weasel words it lets them weasel way their way out of accountability. I am not shocked this administration allows, supports, and participates in this, but I am disgusted every day it's allowed to continue. The fact of the matter is that Israel has crossed the moral "red line" a long, long time ago - prior to 10/7 and even prior to its founding. Ethnic cleansing, genocide, and apartheid are moral red lines no matter who commits them. 18,500 pregnant Palestinian women are fleeing Rafah after the continued horrors and massacres from Israel's ground invasion and continued aerial bombardment. These women and their unborn children already do not have the basic necessities of life to safely give birth and care for their children. The continued stress and forced displacement only further weakens their bodies. So many in our government claim to be "pro life" until it's Palestinian babies on the line. We already knew that stance was a blatant lie, but here is yet another example of the fragrant and obscene disregard for human life. I demand that you:  – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed
