PLEASE TAKE ACTION IN SOLIDARITY WITH PALESTINE!

Ask the eleven Democratic members of Congress who were just returned from Israel to: 1.)  Publicly condemn the attacks by Israeli Defense Forces against unarmed protesters in Gaza, and 2.) Join international calls for a full investigation of the tragic events.

Here are the eleven Democratic members of Congress  to contact:

Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) 202-225-4965

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) 202-225-4176

Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) 202-225-5541

Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) 202-225-6534

Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) 202-225-5341

You can say:

Dear Senator, 

As you were recently part of a Congressional delegation to Israel, I am appealing to you to condemn the Israeli military’s disproportionate use of force on Palestinian protesters in Gaza on Friday, March 30. Fifteen Palestinians were killed that day, and more have died since. Over 1,000 were injured. The toll is shocking, but premeditated. The Israeli army gave authorization in advance for its soldiers to open fire on the protestors. I call on you to condemn this violation of the right to protest, enshrined in international law, and to join international calls for a full investigation of the tragic events.

    The U.S. should stop sending ANY money to Israel until it ceases its war on Palestine. The PALESTINIAN ANCESTORS OPENED THEIR COUNTRY TO JEWISH REFUGEES–AND THEY ARE REWARDED BY BEING SILENCED, RUN OUT OF THEIR HOMES, and not allowed to live in peace or to have any dedent economy. (It’s seems rather like how the white settlers treated Native Americans as they pusheds westward–but we know know it was cruel and wrong.)

    The world is crowded and threatened by climate change events: it is time to focus on that and include all peoples inthe solutions.

    I wish I could find something appropriate to say… but this tragedy is so egregious that I really do not know how to express my horror and sadness..

    Yet another example of the insidious Israeli pogrom of GENOCIDE against the Palestinian people

    Deseo unir también a esta condena por la masacre de Israel contra el pueblo de Palestina, el clamor por la libertad de la joven adolescente Ahed Tamimi y otros niños palestinos presos por las fuerzas de Israel.
    Esta es la última noticia sobre su injusto encarcelamiento por dar una bofetada a un soldado tras dispararle a su primo en diciembre del 2017 .

    Padre de Ahed Tamimi denuncia abusos durante interrogatorios.

    El padre de la joven palestina asegura que las autoridades amenazaron a su hija con detener a sus familiares y amigos.
    Bassem Tamimi, el padre de la joven palestina Ahed Tamimi, denunció este martes que durante los interrogatorios que las autoridades israelíes le realizaron a su hija, existieron abusos verbales y amenazas con detener a sus familiares y amigos.
    Durante una rueda de prensa en la ciudad de Ramala, en Cisjordania, mostró un video de dos oficiales interrogando a Tamimi, y aseguró que fue sometida a un acoso psicológico y físico.
    “Eres una muchacha guapa, tienes el cabello rubio y tu rostro es encarnado. Deberías estar en una playa y no detenida”, mencionan los interrogadores del Shin Bet en el video.
    La familia de Tamimi también denunció que la joven está siendo sometida a interrogatorios de hasta 12 horas seguidas y que, además, le asignaron una celda fría y le cambian las compañeras constantemente.
    La adolescente de 17 años de edad fue detenida en diciembre por golpear a un soldado israelí. Por este hecho, el Tribunal militar la condenó a ocho meses de prisión. También condenó a su madre a cancelar una multa de 1.700 dólares.

    PALESTINA.
    Es el martirio de las rosas.
    Colaterales espinas y piedras ahogan sollozos de las bestias
    Sobre el muro, un niño alza la Flor en sangre
    Le apunta un cañón.

    Why are the Palestinians always the victims of the Israelis?
    When they protest, the get killed.
    Its never been a level playing field, and still isn’t.
    Why does the US government tolerate this barbarian Israeli behavior?
