Suspend Israel military aid, demand accountability for Gaza war crimes

To: Rep. DeGette, Sen. Hickenlooper, Sen. Bennet

From: A verified voter in Denver, CO

May 29

The deadly airstrike on civilians in Rafah has sparked global outrage, with haunting images circulating of the aftermath. As your constituent, I urge you to take decisive action to hold Israel accountable for this gross violation of human rights and international law. The indiscriminate killing of innocent Palestinians, including children, using American-funded weapons is unacceptable and cannot be allowed to continue with impunity. While the White House claims this does not violate President Biden's warnings to Israel, the reality on the ground tells a different story. Civilian casualties on this scale constitute war crimes, and Israel's disproportionate use of force is enabled by the billions in military aid it receives annually from U.S. taxpayers. This unconditional support emboldens Israel's belligerent actions and undermines prospects for a just peace. As an elected representative, you have a moral obligation to stem the flow of weapons and funding that facilitates these atrocities. I implore you to take immediate steps to suspend military aid to Israel and leverage all diplomatic tools at your disposal to demand an immediate ceasefire and unobstructed humanitarian access to Gaza. Only through exerting genuine accountability can we hope to end this cycle of violence and move towards a resolution that upholds the human rights and dignity of all people in the region. The world is watching, and our credibility as a nation hinges on our commitment to human rights and international law.
