Tell The House Foreign Affairs Committee to STOP Funding Apartheid

Israeli war crimes are right now on full display. Along with warplanes bombing Gaza and Palestinians in East Jerusalem being ethnically cleansed from their homes, racist Jewish extremist thugs are marauding through the streets in both Israel and the West Bank, attacking Palestinians. Representative Ilhan Omar has suggested that Congress hold a hearing on US military assistance to Israel so that Americans can learn what their tax dollars are funding.  

Add your name to our petition to House Foreign Affairs Chair Gregory Meeks. We need a hearing on ending US military aid to Israel.

Dear Representative Gregory Meeks,

The events that are right now transpiring in Gaza, Jerusalem, and Central Israel make one thing clear: US taxpayer dollars that go to Israel in the form of $3.8 billion a year in military “aid” are being used to maintain a system of oppression, apartheid, and violence. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to convene a hearing to look at how Israel uses US military assistance and if such assistance should be continued. 

The Biden administration insists that it cares deeply about human rights around the globe, yet so far it has done nothing to hold Israel accountable for its human rights abuses. The US has condemned the rockets coming out of Gaza. But those rockets are not being manufactured or purchased with US tax dollars while the much more lethal bombs Israel is dropping on residential buildings and other civilian targets in Gaza are. 

The current violence taking place in Gaza and Israel escalated from a series of Israeli court-approved forced expulsions in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, and attacks on Palestinian Muslim worshipers in the Al Aqsa compound during the holiest days of the holiest month in the Islamic calendar. Hundreds of Palestinians were injured while trying to pray during Ramadan and now the death toll in Gaza and Israel is reaching horrific numbers. The US can help stop the violence by stopping, or at least cutting or suspending, US military assistance to Israel. Please call a hearing. 

Sincerely,

Will you sign?
