Israel has dropped "evacuation leaflets" on Rafah. Where are they going to go? Everyone in Rafah is going to be slaughtered soon. 1.4 million people have been facing slow deaths by being starved to death or picked off by the bombardments that have never stopped, and now they face imminent annihilation. Those in eastern Rafah have been told to move near al-Mawasi refugee camp. This is the same refugee camp that has been repeatedly bombed since 10/7. More recently, at the end of February, Israel targeted and murdered 2 doctors with Doctors Without Borders (MSF) while they were sheltering in place. 6 others were injured - 5 were women and children. The building was clearly marked MSF. When people were told to go near al-Mawasi late March during the barbaric slaughter and complete destruction of the al-Shifa Hospital, there was no organized humanitarian assistance. People were left without food and shelter then. So, what about now, early May, when eventually 1.4 million people are told to go there? Additionally, al-Mawasi is north of Rafah. The same "evacuation leaflets" advised that the north was not safe and people cannot evacuate there. Do you see the contradiction? And, of course, during the evacuation ordered by Israel, those that have been trying to follow those insane orders and leave the area are facing relentless airstrikes and constant artillery fire near eastern Rafah. Several have been injured or murdered already. It's been clear this entire time these "evacuation notices" have been a thin veneer of excuse to say "we warned them to leave. They didn't and that's why they're all dead". We all see through this manipulation. There is still time to stop what will end up being the largest massacre committed by Israel since 10/7 in Gaza if you take real, decisive action now. I wish I believed you would, but I won't stop demanding you do what's right. 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
