The horrors never cease in Gaza. A mass grave was found today in northern Gaza near the Hamad School where 30 Palestinian bodies were found blindfolded, handcuffed, partially decomposing, with evidence of torture. They were all executed. I don't care if Israel's defense is these were 30 members of Hamas - these are human beings. If they are guilty of some crime, then the due process of international law should be followed. There is no excuse for this. This news precedes other horrific acts of terrorism committed by Israel recently - infiltrating a hospital in the West Bank to murder 3 patients is a war crime. It does not matter if they, too, were "Hamas" - they were literally executed laying down in hospital beds while they slept. Your continued support of Israel's genocide is disturbing, unconscionable, and depraved. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, the West Bank, and all areas the Israeli military is murdering or otherwise violating the human rights of Palestinians – Secure the safe release of Mansour Shouman, a Palestinian Canadian independent journalist and humanitarian worker who was recently illegally abducted by Israel in Khan Younis on 1/23 while trying to evacuate to Rafah from the Nasser Hospital on a “safe route” as directed by Israel - Call for the immediate end of genocide, apartheid, and occupation, and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom, peace, and their human rights - Call for the immediate release of Palestinian “prisoners” (hostages) held captive in Israeli military prisons - Permanently end all monetary and military aid given to Israel by correcting our budget and enforcing Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel to 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 - 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
