An Open Letter

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

From: A verified voter in Bastrop, TX

April 26

The indiscriminate bombardment of the most densely populated part of the world full of refugees being starved to death trying to survive the genocide you are participating in continues. Today, 4/26 Israeli fighter jets, the ones you used my tax dollars to pay for, targeted residential homes in northern Rafah. Meanwhile, this disgusting administration has decided to renege on efforts to actually enforce Leahy law by stopping arms transfers to Israel. Prohibitions on Israel's Netzah Yehuda battalion, who recently beat an elderly American citizen trapped in Gaza and left him to die, is not enough. Every single Israeli unit is guilty of the most serious gross human rights violations of all - perpetuating a genocide. I wouldn't be surprised this administration decides to leave the terrorist Netzah Yehuda battalion without an iota of accountability - even if the correct decision is made to stop arms transfers going to this battalion, it is not enough. Meanwhile, American college students across the country are facing a show and level of barbaric force used to silence their freedom to peaceful assembly and speech and you have done nothing to protect them. On Emory University in Atlanta, state police violently assaulted and arrested one of the faculty, Caroline Fohlin, for the "crime" of asking what they were doing to one of her students as they were also being brutally assaulted by state police. Atlanta PD's disgusting criminal force has the audacity to now try and charge her with battery against a police officer. This is only one incident among too many to name that have happened today and in recent days. 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
