Today, 6/12, the rescue operations to try and save people are in danger of stopping entirely, and the only medical facility with a functioning oxygen station is also at risk. Both urgently need fuel. Rescue operations additionally need equipment and personnel. Israel intentionally blocking humanitarian aid from entering Gaza is the only cause for these life threatening shortages affecting civilian services. I am not fooled by the blame shifting regarding the ceasefire negotiations. The additional amendments proposed by Hamas are vital to an actually functional ceasefire agreement. There must be hard line dates of when the phases will occur, as well as Israel's complete and total withdrawal from Gaza. Accepting an agreement without dates is insanity and does not hold any party, including Hamas, accountable for when this will end. Blinken is a liar. Accepting a ceasefire with no actual dates is meaningless when Israel can decide "it's not time yet". 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
