Enforcing international law and protecting civilians in Israel-Palestine conflict

To: Sen. Kelly, Sen. Sinema, Rep. Ciscomani

From: A verified voter in Cochise, AZ

June 7

Given the grave situation and Israel's continued military operations in defiance of the International Court of Justice's ruling, sanctions must be seriously considered. The United States cannot turn a blind eye to violations of international law and human rights abuses. Israel's disregard for the Rafah provisional orders, leading to the tragic loss of civilian lives including women and children, is unacceptable. Upholding humanitarian principles and the rule of law is fundamental to the United States' values and credibility on the global stage. While sanctions are a serious matter with complex implications, they remain an important tool to incentivize compliance and accountability. The international community has clearly stated its expectations through the ICJ ruling. Continued military aggression and blocking of humanitarian aid access leave the United States with little choice but to pursue punitive economic measures if Israel persists in its unlawful actions. Decisive steps enforcing the international legal order and protecting civilians must be taken to resolve this catastrophic situation and restore human rights and dignity.
