Legislative Alert: Palestinian Rights Matter!
Rapid Response Needed
Explanation: As the Israeli-Palestinian crisis deepens, AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) and related organizations are generating one-sided pressure on members of Congress to “Stand with Israel.”
One month ago, these groups prevailed on 330 Congressional Reps to sign a letter, insisting that, “reducing funding or adding conditions on security assistance would be detrimental to Israel’s ability to defend itself against all threats.”
Note: All Brooklyn Representatives signed this letter (Deutch-McCaul) opposing any restrictions on US military aid to Israel.
We can observe the fruits of this “unconditional” US support in the unfolding tragedy in East Jerusalem and Gaza.
Our Representatives and two Senators need to hear from us ASAP:
Ask them to
- Stand Up for the Human Rights of Palestinians
- Demand an end to one-sided, unconditional US support for Israel.
- And for Congressional Reps, Co-sponsor Resolution H.R. 2590, introduced by Rep. Betty McCullum, prohibiting the use of US funds to support the military detention of children, the demolition of Palestinian homes and further annexation of Palestinian territory.
