As it's gotten hotter with Spring, those trapped in the Gaza strip, the largest concentration death camp and most densely populated place in the world, the presence of insect swarms like flies and mosquitoes has escalated the risk of the spread of serious diseases and illnesses. The makeshift tents are now overheating - at least 2 children have died due to rising temperatures alone due to lack of proper shelter and healthcare. This shouldn't be surprising - back in January the WHO warned that the exponential spread of diseases that will begin to claim more lives than the bombs will occur due to these conditions. Over 1.5 million people are trapped in Rafah - more than half of the entire population of Gaza - and you are still giving Israel the greenlight to invade, murder, destroy, and ethnically cleanse the land? Your lack of humanity is beyond disturbing. As mass graves across Gaza are being uncovered near the scenes of previously besieged and destroyed hospitals, like Nasser Hospital, and other civilian sites, bodies are being found headless, still bound. There is ample proof that Israeli forces mass executed hundreds of civilians at these sites. At Nasser specifically, two of those mass graves contained the bodies of approximately 700 people. Many bodies show signs of severe torture, dismemberment, and having been crushed by Israeli tanks and bulldozers. And instead of doing anything to stop this, this administration has instead took to targeting American college students under the guise of combatting antisemitism. I encourage you to watch Elijah Kahlenberg's recent interview. He is a Jewish-American student at the University of Texas standing in solidarity with Palestinians. He is a major in Jewish studies, Government, and Middle East studies. He knows, as the rest of the world with humanity does, that Israel is committing a genocide. 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, the COLUMBIA act, and any similar legislation proposed
