From: A verified voter in Bastrop, TX

May 27

Unlike the repeated and long proven lie of 40 beheaded babies on 10/7, I will never be able to get the images out of my head of the baby that was decaptiated in Israel's recent massacre in Rafah. I wish it were the only one - back in April the descreated Palestinian bodies were buried in mass graves at Al-Shifa and Nasser hospitals. The bodies, which includes children and babies, were mutilated - skinned, beheaded, missing organs. Descriptions of the massacre are heartbreaking - Gazan dentist Abu Salah describes how there are no pain relievers or other medical supplies to treat the extensive casualities and burn victims. Bodies are found scattered, dismembered by the force of the bombs targeted on a tent refugee camp. People were burned alive. The description of a woman carrying the ashes of her 6 children in the palm of her hand, shell-shocked and consumed with grief. Approximlately 45 have been murdered that have been identified so far. Israel murdered an additional 160 that day after bombing other refugee camps in Jabalia, Nuseirat and Gaza City. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Hospital is in danger of a complete shut down, again, due to Israel blocking a delivery of fuel to keep the generators running. 1,200 patients are relying on the hospital's services. 600 are kidney failure patients who require dialysis machines in order to survive. There are 20 NICU babies at risk of imminent death if power to their incubators fails. Before the small delivery of fuel that's kept some of the hospital's electricity going, the difficult decision to cut power to the entire hospital except the NICU had to be made. Doctors were wrapping babies in blankets and trying to keep them warm with their hands. All patients, including the many child casualties, received treatment by the light of cellphones. The hospital has advised they need 50,000 litres of fuel in order to continue to operate for at least 10 days. Elsewhere in occupied Palestine, settler colonial terrorists hung by a noose a child-size doll dressed in a kufiya inside a synagogue and celebrated it. Israeli forces destroyed several Palestinian shops in Hizma, in occupied Jersualem. This didn't stop there - they even destroyed barns for sheep and livestock. The entirety of Palestine is being terrorized. This administration fully has the power to stop this immediately, but you've chosen instead to deepen your complicity and participation in genocide. 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
