Since the ICJ's recent ruling ordering Israel to hault all military actions in Rafah and immediately withdraw, at least one Palestinian has been murdered every hour in Rafah. Again, that is only in RAFAH - that is only the minimum count. After the Rafah tent massacre where people were burned to death, the testimony from survivors coming out should horrify and shock the conscience of every person with a shred of morality. A journalist watched a child enter his family's burning tent to try and save his mother who was disabled and could not walk. The flames were too powerful - once the child entered those around could not try and save him. After the fires were put out, the child was found burned to death, hugging his mother's burned, dead body. Another day, 5/29, and more refugee tent massacres. Israel murdered at least 21 in a "designated safe zone" west of Rafah. Over the past 3 weeks, only 170 trucks of humanitarian aid have been allowed entry by Israel into Gaza. The absolute minimum needed is 500 trucks of aid per day. Israeli national security advisor, Tzachi Hangebi, says the genocide in Gaza will continue throughout 2024 at least. By then, hundreds of thousands will have starved to death. Current projections estimate that approximately 500,000 Palestinians will be murdered in Gaza from both Israeli forces artillery fire and intentional massacres, and fully preventable spread of disease, sickness, and lack of medical supplies to treat it by the end of 2024. 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
