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


Why are you so afraid to call this what it is? What's stopping you? The Israeli government and military is committing a genocide in warp speed to Palestinians as I write this and as someone in your office reads this. Is it because you've been signing off on sending billions of American taxpayer money to fund it? Is it because you've accepted campaign contributions from AIPAC and other donors like them? Has it been worth it? Truly? How much did it take to buy your soul? I'd like to save up and buy it next so you actually work for the American people's interests for once. Approximately, but likely more than, 10,500 Palestinian souls are gone from this Earth as of 11/8/23 due to the brutal bombardment by the IDF with both traditional and chemical weapons. Every innocent life lost is a tragedy- I don't care what race, religion or place they're from. We can all mourn the innocent Israeli lives lost, but not the Palestinians? We can all condemn Hamas, but if we criticize and rightfully call out another government's war crimes, we're antisemitic? Do you realize how insane the U.S. government's messaging on this sounds? The United States cannot remain allies with a country that is stealing land, life, and liberty from a group they have been violently occupying for generations. I don't care if it's all happening in another part of the world. Have we not learned from our own dark history? We cannot claim to stand for liberty, justice, and democracy while funding and providing military support to a genocidal apartheid state. I demand you call for an immediate ceasefire- a "humanitarian pause" is completely insufficient-, the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from the area, and all financial, intelligence, and military aid given to Israel to permanently cease. I demand the billions you've taken of my tax dollars to go instead to humanitarian relief for all of occupied Palestine 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 and are unable to be restricted by the Israeli government now and in the future. We cannot allow Palestine to continue to be occupied and erased. I demand you voice support of and take any and all actions to assist Palestinians in regaining their land, freedom, and right to self-governance. This has never been and is not a call to have the same atrocities done to Israeli people. ALL PEOPLE should be safe from apartheid, genocide, and ethnic cleansing. The situation in occupied Gaza is beyond dire. The actions being taken by the IDF to terrorize the occupied West Bank grow in disturbing, heinous ways every single day. The magnitude of human suffering is impossible to quantify. It has gone beyond comprehension. Every day becomes more unspeakable.
