Your policy on Palestine is an abomination

To: Sen. Gillibrand, Sen. Schumer

From: A constituent in Jackson Heights, NY

May 10

Every excuse, deflection, and exception that you make for Israel is a travesty. There is overwhelming publicly available evidence of Israel’s war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocidal intent in Gaza. And Israel’s bloody reign of apartheid and ethnic cleansing is not limited to the Gaza Strip. Violent terrorist settlers backed by the IDF continue to murder and displace Palestinians in the West Bank, too. This violence only serves to perpetuate cycles of war and horror for generations to come. How many dead Palestinian children will be enough to satisfy you? What kind of ghoul speaks out more against college kids protesting than about tens of thousands of children being murdered by their so-called ally? Shame! I refuse to be complicit. I demand that you take action: 1. Begin an arms embargo, now! Halt the provision of all aid and arms to Israel immediately in order to obey US law under 10 USC 362, 22 USC 2378-1, and 22 USC 2378d. 2. Use the full strength of US resources to demand that Israel comply with the UN Security Council ceasefire resolution, and work to achieve a lasting ceasefire. 3. Force Israel to let sufficient humanitarian aid into Gaza via existing land routes; support the efforts of the Freedom Flotilla in their emergency mission to deliver aid to Gaza; fund UNRWA. 4. Sanction Israel for its illegal actions, including in the West Bank. 5. Reject all rhetoric and legislation that conflates anti-zionism with anti-semitism. 6. HANDS OFF RAFAH! De-escalate! No more bombs on Gaza, Yemen, Iran, or anywhere else in the Middle East! No more forever wars!
