“We are shocked. We do not know what to do. We are physically and mentally worn out. We are on the verge of going insane. We have been under this hell for eight months. Enough is enough." These are words from Emad Oudeh in Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza. Israel told them all to evacuate. There is nowhere for them. Journalist Anas Al-Sharif reported earlier today, 5/11, after his home was targeted and destroyed by Israel's bombardments, that there have been over 70 airstrikes in a 2 hour period throughout northern Gaza particularly in eastern and western Jabalia and Beit Lahia with airstrikes targeting shelters and their immediate vicinity. While Israel's annihilation of Rafah continues without you doing anything meaningful to stop it, Israel is attacking the entirety of the Gaza strip at one time. As part of today's genocidal onslaught, Israel targeted a group of journalists and paramedics in Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip and murdered Dr. Mohammed Qaza'at, one of the founders of pediatric surgery in Gaza, along with with son, dentist Dr. Yousef Qaza'at. Journalists are not a target. Doctors, nurses, and paramedics are not a target. Families are not a target. Children are not a target. This is 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 and any similar legislation proposed
