Israel's ethnic cleansing campaign is reaching it's end goals as you've done nothing about it. They've been absolutely transparent in their efforts to push the entire population of the Gaza strip to Rafah and into Egypt. 1.1 million people followed the repeated evacuation orders "to safety" by walking for days on streets littered with decomposing bodies, while Israeli forces actively shot into the crows killing even more people. Rafah now holds approximately 1.8 million people, in makeshift tent shelters, starving and dying from injuries and illnesses. On Friday Israel announced and has now enacted it's plans to increase bombing, and ground operations throughout Rafah. Admist the horrors, my government is working to pass another military aid package to Israel for $14.1 billion, with an additional $2.4 billion to further attacks on Yemen for their attempts at fulfilling the entire world's obligations under the Genocide Convention to stop Israel's genocide of Palestinians. I am absolutely disgusted by all of you. You'll give billions away of my tax dollars for a genocide and put our country deeper in debts you will never shoulder, and then tell the American people there's no money for universal healthcare, improved funding of our education system, student debt relief, and all the other things we have been begging for. Shame on you. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and all areas Israel is murdering and violating the human rights of Palestinians - Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians illegally held captive in Israeli military prisons - Immediately resume funding of UNRWA and commit additional resources to all humanitarian groups providing aid to Palestinians not only because it is the right thing to do, but to end U.S. complicity in genocide - Call for the immediate end of Israel's genocide, occupation, and apartheid being brutally imposed on Palestine, and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Permanently end all monetary and military aid given to Israel by correcting our budget and enforcing our own laws like Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel to ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians to help them rebuild, care for the sick & injured, bury the dead with dignity, and ensure all of their basic needs are taken care of - Repeal all federal anti-BDS laws and pass legislation that voids all state-level anti-BDS laws - Restore my right to free speech and the freedom of the press by condemning all discrimination or harassment for criticizing any government or political ideology (including zionism) and by doing everything possible to prevent future assaults to my rights, including governmental control and/or censorship of the Internet
