Yesterday, 2/18, one of the few medical workers able to flee the Nasser Hospital, Dr Ahmed al-Moghrabi, reported that Israel abducted the remaining medical staff who stayed in the hospital to try and carefully evacuate the approximately 200 critical patients remaining after Israel forced tens of thousands sheltering and/or receiving medical care there out at gun point. Before their abduction, Israel forced medical workers and civilians to strip naked as they demeaned them, and threatened them with attacks by their military dogs. No one knows where the innocent people from the Nasser Hospital have been taken to or if they are still alive. Meanwhile, in Northern Gaza, starving people were murdered by Israeli snipers AGAIN, when they tried to reach one of the precious few humanitarian aid trucks. Israel airs its own war crimes both on social media and on their own national news. Recently Israel's Channel 12 aired footage of a group of Palestinian hostages they were psychologically terrorizing and demeaning on camera. Their country knows what is happening and celebrates it. You know what is happening and do nothing. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire - Call for the immediate end of Israel's occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Hold Israel accountable for their violations of the Genocide Convention and all other international laws by any means necessary - 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 resume 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 - 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
