An open letter to the President & U.S. Congress

I've noticed a pattern - Halloween, Thanksgiving weekend, the week of Christmas and Christmas day, New Years, and now the Superbowl weekend, the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza peaks. I've seen the horrific massacres that began literally the moment the Superbowl began and is still ongoing today. Rafah is the farthest south and the "safe zone" Israel ordered the entirety of the Gaza strip to evacuate to. It is now the most densely populated area in the world. Approximately 1.5 - 1.7 million displaced people are in Rafah. Over half the population is in this small area of land right at the Egyptian border. There is no where else to go. Israel did not create an "evacuation plan" and despite Biden saying there had to be before the ground offensive, it continued on. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when Biden literally called the massacres a U.S. "military operation in Rafah" in a press conference today after his meeting with the King of Jordan. Did he misspeak or was this a Freudian slip revealing the truth? I'm leaning more towards the actual truth since this is my same genocidal president who decided to post on X a creepy image of himself with red eyes the moment bombs were mass murdering Palestinians during the Superbowl. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and all other areas of occupied-Palestine - Call for the immediate end of Israel's occupation and apartheid brutally imposed on Palestine, and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Hold Israel accountable for their war crimes and violations of the Genocide Convention and other international laws - 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 - Immediately resume funding of UNRWA and commit additional resources to all humanitarian groups providing aid to Palestinians not only because it is the right thing to do, but to end U.S. complicity in genocide - Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel by correcting our budget and enforcing our own laws like Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians to help them rebuild, care for the sick & injured, bury the dead with dignity, and ensure all of their basic needs are taken care of - 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 regional conflict - Repeal all federal anti-BDS laws and pass legislation that voids all state-level anti-BDS laws - Restore my right to free speech and the freedom of the press by condemning all discrimination or harassment for criticizing any government or political ideology (including zionism) and by doing everything possible to prevent future assaults to my rights, including governmental control and/or censorship of the Internet
