An American woman, Morgan, living in Palestine with her family in the West Bank, showed the devastation of Ramallah's major food and goods market being intentionally targeted and burned in the middle of the night, 5/30. All of the fresh produce is gone. This is the central place for many in the greater area to get fresh foods and other goods. We have seen time and time again Israel's actions in Gaza mirrored throughout the rest of occupied Palestine. It's not enough Gaza is being starved to death for Israel - now Ramallah's food supply is similarly attacked. It isn't enough for their food to be destroyed, either - Israel bombed the Balata refugee camp in eastern Nablus. How many refugee camp massacres are we at now since 10/7? I can't even count them all. The invastion of the West Bank mirrors the atrocities early on in Gaza. The only difference is this time Israeli settler-colonists are part of the invasion force - at least 5 busloads of them were seen accompanied by Israeli forces entering Nablus 5/29. Israel cannot be allowed to continue to go unchecked. You must stand up and leverage every avenue available to make Israel obey the binding ICJ and ICC rulings and enforce a permanent ceasefire. Our country can stop this without more bloodshed by simply stopping all military and financial support. In the past 24 hours alone, at least 53 Palestinians have been murdered and 357 injured by Israeli forces. At least 2 paramedics were among those murdered today as they were en route to try and rescue the injured near Tal as-Sultan. The ground invasion into Rafah has only continued to expand, and without you taking decisive action now, this will not stop. 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
