President Obama: End Israel's Blockade of Gaza, Hold Israel Accountable for Killing Palestinians with U.S. Weapons
UPDATED: Wednesday, November 21, 3PM Eastern
Since November 14, Israel has killed more than 140 Palestinians in the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip, including 91 civilians and 28 children. In addition, 5 Israelis have been killed by Palestinian rockets. A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas went into effect earlier today.
Israel's attacks against the Gaza Strip were committed with U.S. weapons given to Israel as military aid by the U.S. taxpayer. These weapons are being misused by Israel in violation of the U.S. Arms Export Control Act to commit grave human rights abuses of Palestinians.
Write and call President Obama at 202-456-1111 and demand that he exert diplomatic pressure on Israel to lift its illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip and initiate an investigation into Israel's violations of U.S. weapons laws. The United States must hold Israel accountable for committing human rights abuses of Palestinians with U.S. weapons by ending U.S. military aid to Israel.
