Dozens of Israeli settlers rampaged through Palestinian towns on Sunday night, torching cars and homes, injuring and killing more than 100 Palestinian civilians.
TAKE ACTION: Contact your Members of Congress now! Let them know we refuse to let our weapons and tax dollars support the criminal activities of the Israeli government and its settlers.
The Washington Post reports that during the four-hour rampage by settlers in Huwara near the city of Nablus, Occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers at the scene only cordoned off the area, without moving to stop the violence. The next day, Israeli soldiers guarded a group of settlers gathering at the closest junction. These are Israeli soldiers armed and supported by our tax dollars. The U.S. government continues to send Israel $3.8 billion+ every year with absolutely no accountability. Israel’s blank-check policies are not just in violation of U.S. law that prohibits supporting human rights abusers, it is a moral scandal!
Click here now to email your Members of Congress. The time to end our support of Israel’s apartheid, racism, and violence is NOW.
Just last month, Netanyahu announced his plans to arm thousands of Israeli settlers. His plan included expediting gun permits for Israelis. Some analysts rightly predicted that “with this move, Netanyahu is giving the green light for all Israelis to inflict violence upon Palestinians with full impunity.” What happened this weekend was not an isolated action of some bad apples. It was an orchestrated effort by Netanyahu’s regime.
After emailing your Members of Congress, you can also call the White House between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm today and tomorrow at (202) 456-1111. Please take a minute to call and let President Biden know that we demand he condemn Israeli settlers attacking Palestinian civilians and we want him to cut all U.S. military aid to the Netanyahu apartheid regime.
Thank you for taking action.
