"We must do everything to ensure they [the Palestinians] never do return ... The old will die and the young will forget." -David Ben Gurion, Founder and First Prime Minister of Israel, 1948 "Whoever returns here, if they return here after, will find scorched earth. No houses, no agriculture, no nothing. They have no future." -Israeli Colonel Yogev BarSheshet, speaking from Gaza, 2023 "[Palestinians are akin tol the rocks of Judea, as obstacles that have to be cleared on a difficult path." -Chaim Weizmann, First President of Israel "The emphasis is on damage and not on accuracy." -Israeli Military Spokesman Daniel Hagari, 2023 "We must not forget that we are dealing here with a semi-savage people, which has extremely primitive concepts." -Moshe Smilansky, Zionist Leader, 1914 "There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel … We are fighting human animals, and we are acting accordingly." -Israeli Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant, 2023 "What happened there, we came, we entered the village [and] planted a bomb next to every house." -Israeli General Elad Peled describing war crimes he committed during the Nakba "Right now, one goal: Nakba! A Nakba that will overshadow the Nakba of 1948." -Israeli Knesset member Ariel Kallner, 2023 President Biden continues to supply and fund Israel while knowing since October 2023 that Israel has been targeting civilians. This is continued participation in Israel’s genocide of Palestinians and a violation of Leahy Law, which prohibits our government from funding foreign forces who are implicated in gross human rights violations. U.N. human rights expert, Francesca Albanese, has documented how Israel’s gross human rights violations and war crimes are genocidal acts, including their targeting of hospitals and healthcare workers, targeting journalists and civilians, using starvation as a weapon, etc. The U.S. continues to ignore the U.N. resolution on March 25 for a ceasefire. As people of conscience, we will not ignore this. I am demanding you to take immediate steps to stop Israel’s genocide of Palestinians by calling for 1) a total and permanent bilateral ceasefire (which is what a ceasefire is), 2) humanitarian aid allowed to enter Gaza, 3) an end to Israel's siege on Gaza, 4) the release of all Palestinian and Israeli hostages, 5) no more weapons or funding to the Israeli military, 6) the reinstatement of UNRWA funding. A permanent ceasefire is an absolutely critical step to ensuring everlasting liberation and peace. Never again means never again for anyone. Palestinians deserve to live with freedom and safety which means first stopping this genocide and then ensuring liberation from occupation and apartheid. The liberation and safety of Palestinians, Israelis, Jewish people, and Muslim people are intertwined. There can only be true safety when we are all free from oppression.
