This morning I woke up to the horrific news that 5-year-old Hind Rajab was murdered along with the 2 brave PCRS EMS workers who went to try and rescue her. The ambulance was found utterly destroyed. The PCRS was in contact with and coordinated with Israel to try and secure safe passage. They knew a child was in desperate need of help and murdered her and those who went to save her. Meanwhile, Israeli airstrikes have murdered another 44 people in Rafah earlier today - only hours after Netanyahu said "to plan how to evacuate the area ahead of the ground invasion. There is nowhere for them to evacuate to. There is nowhere farther south than Rafah, and moving north leads back to active combat zones, and no humanitarian aid. Rafah is one of the most densely populated areas of the world now - people are living in tent cities. The genocide is going to accelerate to a magnitude unlike anything we've seen so far if you continue to do nothing. You already failed to save Hind. But you can still save Rafah. Do it now. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and all other areas of occupied-Palestine - Call for the immediate end of Israel's occupation and apartheid brutally imposed on Palestine, and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Hold Israel accountable for their war crimes and violations of the Genocide Convention and other international laws - 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 - 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 - Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel by correcting our budget and enforcing our own laws like Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel for 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 - 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 regional conflict - 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
