Today’s Action: Tell Congress to stop funding Israel’s violence against Palestinians

Israel’s far-right government, led by President Benjamin Netanyahu, is carrying out an illegal occupation (determined so by the United Nations many times) of Palestinians’ land. This often-violent occupation has expanded over decades, and millions of Palestinians live in a state of upheaval and apartheid, denied access to equal legal rights and basic needs including clean water, housing, medical access (including COVID-19 vaccinations), and the freedom to travel.

Tensions have exploded in recent weeks, including more forced evictions of Palestinians from East Jerusalem and tear-gassing the Al-Asqa Mosque…and although rockets have been fired from both sides, the Palestinian death, injury, and infrastructure devastation caused by the (much more powerful) Israeli rockets is – currently and historically – astoundingly higher than the reverse.

And who pays for this humanitarian crisis? Answer: you, the American taxpayer.

Call or email your Members of Congress to demand the end of our military aid to Israel while it is used for human rights abuses and illegal seizure of Palestinian land.

Over $3 billion of US foreign aid supports Israel’s violent occupation of Palestinian land. And the United States, including under President Biden, has repeatedly blocked the United Nations’ international calls for ceasefire, refusing to condemn or put pressure on Israel’s illegal settlement activities and its air strikes on civilians.

It is deeply hypocritical for us to pay lip service to peace talk while actively funding one side’s aggressive acts. We must defend human rights.

Call or email your Members of Congress to demand an end to US financial support of Israel’s deadly attacks on Palestinian civilians.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling President Biden to condemn the Netanyahu regime’s attacks on Palestinian civilians, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
