As we've already known since 10/7, Israel has been found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity both in Gaza and other areas of occupied Palestine like the West Bank. These crimes include but are not limited to sexual and gender based violence with a distinction that Palestinian men are being subjected to sexual torture, intentional attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure, mass extermination, starvation as a tool of war, inhumane treatment, physical, psychological, and sexual torture and more. The UN Commission of Inquiry said in an interview on 6/19, "We have never seen anything like this." At least 310 health workers in Gaza are known to have been kidnapped and held in Israeli concentration death camps. Doctors, nurses, and healthcare providers are not targets. Their intentional capture and the litany of abuse and torture they have been subjected to speaks more to the depravity and racism of Israel than any real attempts to rescue Israeli hostages. The World Health Organization's most recent Emergency Situation Update dated 6/6 summarizes a level of destruction of Gaza's healthcare system that should be a shock to the conscience of every person with a shred of humanity. Only 47% of Gaza's hospitals are partially functional. The rest are completely out of service. Out of the dwindling number of hospitals still providing minimal services, approximately 82% are only partially accessible due to the level of destruction of surrounding them and the scarce availability of ambulances. This must be put to a stop immediately. We cannot continue to allow this to continue. 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 – 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 and any similar legislation proposed
