Today is the 50th day of Israel's attack on Gaza. The devastation is staggering. More than 2,000 Palestinians killed, at least 70 percent civilians. Nearly 500 children massacred. More than 17,000 homes damaged or destroyed and more than one-fourth of Gaza's population, most of whom are refugees ethnically cleansed from their homes by Israel in 1948, turned into internally displaced persons.
Enough is enough. Click here to send one coordinated message to the White House in massive numbers: Hold Israel Accountable.
How has the United States responded to these horrors? Secretary of State John Kerry called Israel's actions "appropriate and legitimate." Congress voted to send more money for weapons to Israel and passed resolutions supporting the war. The Obama administration delivered more jet fuel, more artillery, and more grenade rounds.
Help us generate 25,000 signatures calling on the Obama administration to end weapons transfers to Israel, to stop blocking international efforts to hold Israel accountable for its war crimes, to end Israel's blockade, its military occupation, and its apartheid policies toward Palestinians.
We're launching this campaign together with American Muslims for Palestine, Code Pink, and U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.
