The videos and images of the Palestinian children who are being starved to death by Israel should haunt every human being with a conscience and basic morality. One of the most recent I've seen of a child near death's door was shared maybe a month ago now, who was receiving the limited medical treatment that was still available at Kamal Adwan Hospital. This was after the most recent barbaric siege by Israel in February where the remaining medical staff who had not been murdered or abducted, had to treat people on the floor because there was no where else for the massive casualties. Even at that time, injured patients weren't safe from Israeli violence. When Suhaib Shaaban tried to go where aid was being distributed because his sister was suffering severe malnutrition from being starved by Israel, and he was intentionally targeted, shot from tanks, and injured. All of this is from the end of February. The video of the child was from April. I wonder now, is Suhaib and his sister still alive? Has that child, emaciated- so underweight all bones visible, survived? The entire population of northern Gaza is now in complete and total famine. No one in Gaza, even the majority in the south have reliable access to clean water and adequate food. Every single person is experiencing some form of malnutrition. Israel is starving over 2 million people to death, and you are helping them do it. 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
