Review U.S. Funding to Israel: Addressing Human Rights Concerns

To: Rep. Moolenaar, Sen. Peters, Sen. Stabenow, Pres. Biden

From: A constituent in Mount Pleasant, MI

February 27

The recent self-immolation of a U.S. Air Force member outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C. underscores the urgency of addressing the ongoing conflict in Gaza. The individual, in his final act, expressed a refusal to be complicit in what he termed "genocide". This incident, along with a similar one in Atlanta, highlights the growing concern among U.S. citizens about our nation's involvement in the conflict. It is crucial to reassess the financial support provided to Israel, particularly in light of the allegations of genocide against Palestinians. The request here is to initiate a comprehensive review of this funding, with the aim of ensuring that U.S. resources are not contributing to potential human rights violations. The rationale is to align our foreign policy with the principles of justice and human rights, thereby reflecting the values of our citizenry.
