An Open Letter

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

From: A verified voter in Bastrop, TX

May 13

Over 300,000 people, who are being starved to death, are frantically fleeing Rafah with no where safe to go. Israel is carpet bombing the entirety of the Gaza strip. What do you expect them to do? How do you not see that all of Israel's actions demonstrate it's intention to commit genocide and ethnic cleansing? This doesn't even end at Gaza. For the second day in a row, Israeli settler-colonial terrorists have been attacking civilians throughout Nablus. They set a Palestinian's car on fire. Attacks on all Palestinians in all occupied territories have been violently escalating, especially since Israel's ground assault into Rafah began. This administration's recent, poor attempt to act as if they care, threatening to cut off "offensive weapons" to Israel is absurd. Tell me, how are you able to ascertain that a "defensive weapon" you provide would not just be repurposed to murder more Palestinians? Not only that, but you have been absolutely silent this entire time on the horrific human rights abuses throughout Israeli "military prisons". Palestinian hostages are being subjected to torture. At Sde Teiman, more disturbing accounts have been coming out regarding the conditions there. Palestinians are blindfolded, forced into stress positions, forced to wear diapers and be fed through a straw because they are not allowed to move at all, and other barbaric acts. Hostages are undergoing "routine" amputations because of the severity of the torture and lengthy time in physical restraints, often by medical staff who do not have the training or proper supplies to perform the procedures. 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
