Just considering the confirmed number of Palestinians Israel has murdered in Gaza since 10/7, that does not include those missing and presumed dead under the rubble, from 10/7 to 1/15, the average number of deaths per day in Gaza, 250, has exceeded every major recent conflict. 250 Palestinians dead per day. The closest in recent years was Syria at 96 deaths per day. Iraq was 50, Afghanistan was 23. Oxfam International used publicly available data on reported deaths to approximate these figures. If we only consider Syria, the previous record high, Israel's per day murder of Palestinians is approximately 160% more. For Iraq, the percent increase is a staggering 400%. The figure used to calculate average number of deaths per day in Gaza does not include those who have been starved to death, or whose deaths are directly attributable to Israel's intentional destruction of civilian infrastructure including medical facilities, water treatment, food, etc. In a likelihood the average is significantly higher, especially since those numbers came from 1/15/24. Gaza is being outright slaughtered. Israel will not stop unless they are stopped. Our country is the only one most uniquely posed to make this end without further bloodshed. If our financial and military support ceased, Israel would be forced to stop. It should stop and never be restarted. Billions of my tax dollars have been stolen to serve a country committing a genocide. That money should be used to actually help the lives of the average American. 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
