“A piece of my heart is gone…but Alhamdulillah, O Lord, you are more compassionate towards him than I.” These are the words of a mother in Gaza saying goodbye to her child who was murdered in Israel's recent massacre at the Nuseirat refugee camp. His small body is wrapped in a thin sheet- stained red where his head would be - on the floor between two cars. Family and community members are gathered around, saying their goodbyes. This was his funeral. A thin sheet covering a small body outside on the concrete between cars while his mother cried and prayed over his body. This has happened over and over again in Gaza. At least 16,000 children have been murdered by Israel since 10/7 using estimates from 5/13. The Nuseirat refugee camp massacre has claimed the lives of at least 210, and injured upwards of 400. Too many mothers have had the same experience just that day. As of 6/8, Israel has murdered approximately 36,800 - 43,600 total Palestinians in Gaza since 10/7. This does not include the current estimate of those presumed dead under the rubble. The total 43,600 estimate comes from a reputable IGO, EuroMed Human Rights Monitor, from 5/13. At the time of that estimate, approximately 8,300 were presumed dead under the rubble. That number has undoubtably increased with all of the recent massacres of refugee camps, but if we just take that number, the best estimate we have for today, 6/8, is a total of 45,100 Palestinians murdered. 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
