Israel's man-made famine, the worst ever recorded, is and has been here. You were advised repeatedly by multiple, credible international organizations that if nothing is done there will be mass death by starvation throughout Gaza. The UN's most recent data, only including a fraction of the true toll where individuals were identified and reported, shows that at least 31 people have been starved to death - 27 of which were children. Today, 3/29, Ahmed Al-Ali, an ICU nurse at the Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza where famine is most extreme, gave an interview describing the horrific conditions. He had just received a 2 month old, skeletal and clearly suffering, in the ICU. He advised that during his typical ICU shift, he's been receiving about 3 to 4 infants and small children who are severely emaciated. Ahmed stated that these children do not have good outcomes - they are all dying. In Hadeel al-Dahdouh's recent interview she expanded on the torture she and other Palestinian hostages were subjected to. Israeli forces injected them with drugs, causing confusion and hallucination, and proceeded to demand information "on Hamas". I wrote to you about her horrific testimony on 3/26/24 and have yet to hear back from you. So I will reiterate - tell me how this is Israel defending itself. Explain to me why my tax dollars were used for the funding of Hadeel’s nightmare. Meanwhile in the other areas of occupied Palestine, today, 3/29, armed settler-colonial terrorists, accompanied by Israeli military forces, stormed the Qaryut Spring, south of Nablus in yet another land grab and reign of terror on civilians. This genocide must be ended immediately and decisive action must be taken to try and stop the 2.3 million people in Gaza from being starved to death by Israel. 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 resuming 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 – Vote no on H.R. 7521
