While I can't say I am surprised any more at the horrific acts Israel commits, I am continually appalled and disgusted. Have you seen the footage from the Sheikh Hamad Hospital showing it's current state after having been brutally and violently besieged like all the other hospitals Israel has committed war crimes in? The level of destruction is staggering- all for allegations of a "Hamas tunnel" which was actually a water reservoir. Before Israeli forces left, they left graffiti on walls littered with bullet holes, which included homophobic slurs, and a mocking comment to the mothers of Gaza. How is this the "most moral army"? How can you continue to fund and support these atrocities? My hope in your humanity was extinguished early on as I've read your consistently tone deaf and insulting replies to my letters every day. It's not going to discourage me from continuing to advocate for human rights, speak truth to power, make clear where and how I want my tax dollars spent, and let you know I strongly object to all foreign interference, including Israel's manipulation, in my country. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and all areas Israel is murdering and violating the human rights of Palestinians – Secure the immediate release and safety of Mansour Shouman, a Palestinian Canadian independent journalist and humanitarian worker, who was recently illegally abducted by Israel in Khan Younis on 1/23 while trying to evacuate to Rafah from the Nasser Hospital on a “safe route” as directed by Israel - Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians illegally held captive in Israeli military prisons - Immediately resume funding of UNRWA and commit additional resources to all humanitarian groups providing aid to Palestinians not only because it is the right thing to do, but to end U.S. complicity in genocide - Call for the immediate end of Israel's genocide, occupation, and apartheid being brutally imposed on Palestine, and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Permanently end all monetary and military aid given to Israel by correcting our budget and enforcing our own laws like Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel to ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians 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 - Repeal all federal anti-BDS laws and pass legislation that voids all state-level anti-BDS laws - Restore my right to free speech and the freedom of the press by condemning all discrimination or harassment for criticizing any government or political ideology (including zionism) and by doing everything possible to prevent future assaults to my rights, including governmental control and/or censorship of the Internet
