Re-evaluate military aid to Israel, prioritize human rights

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

From: A constituent in Plano, TX

May 30

The recent findings that a U.S.-made bomb was likely used in the deadly airstrike on a civilian camp in Rafah is deeply concerning. While Israel has the right to defend itself, the loss of innocent lives, including those of women and children, is unacceptable. The use of American munitions raises serious questions about the involvement of U.S. weapons in this conflict. I urge you to reconsider the approval of arms transfers to Israel, particularly precision-guided munitions like the GBU-39 small diameter bomb. The risk of civilian casualties, even with the use of such "precise" weapons, is unacceptably high in densely populated areas like Gaza. Furthermore, continuing to supply weapons emboldens Israel's military actions and undermines efforts to achieve a lasting peace. It is imperative that the United States reevaluates its military aid to Israel and conditions future assistance on concrete steps towards ending the violence and occupation. Human rights and the preservation of innocent lives must take precedence over military cooperation. I implore you to use your influence to push for an immediate ceasefire and invest in diplomacy to resolve this longstanding conflict through peaceful means.
