  • After Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, it carried out a complete blockade of the borders, airspace and waterways of Gaza, leading to the economic, medical and humanitarian crisis of Gaza. 80% of people in Gaza live in dire poverty (average ANNUAL income of $625) with no food, fuel, financial aid, electricity, clean water, or medical supplies.

  • Like Nelson Mandela, who was also once labeled a terrorist, the Palestinians are exercising their right to fight for freedom against this occupation with primitive home made rockets (3000 of which have led to three casualties in Israel).

  • Israeli aid from American tax-payers money and American supplied F-16 fighter jets and Apache helicopters are being used by Israel in the slaughter of civilians including women and children MAKING US PART OF THE CRIME.

  • Any attempt to speak the truth against Israel is met with calls of “anti-Semitism”

  • Israel controls the media allowing a one sided propaganda to get to the American people. By acting as a victim, labeling every opponent, group or nation as terrorists, Israel carries out genocide under the guise of fighting terrorism.

QUOTES:

“All this was, and is, disproportionate, indiscriminate mass violence in violation of international law… Israel is not exempt from international law and must be held accountable.”
Congressman and 2008 Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-naiman/can-congress-speak-out-ag_b_155595.html

“Israel’s current policy in the territories is a system of apartheid, with two peoples occupying the same land but completely separated from each other, with Israelis totally dominant and suppressing violence by depriving Palestinians of their basic human rights.” President Jimmy Carter

http://www.democracynow.org/2006/11/30/palestine_peace_not_apartheid_jimmy_carter

“I am also appalled by the longstanding Israeli blockade of Gaza — a cruel act of war… There are now an estimated 700 dead Palestinians, most of whom are civilians. Many innocent children are among the dead.” “Such collective punishment is immoral… the US Congress should not be loudly proclaiming its support for the Israeli government’s actions in Gaza.”   Congressman and 2008 Presidential Candidate  Ron Paul

http://www.house.gov/apps/list/speech/tx14_paul/Statement_on_Gaza.shtml

“If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms-never-never-never” William Pitt, Earl of Chatham On Affairs in America

http://thinkexist.com/quotation/if-i-were-an-american-as-i-am-an-englishman-while/537378.html

“I find the conduct of the Israeli army in Gaza to be brutal and dishonorable, and it is insulting that they and others claim that the US military would behave in the same way. Israel’s dishonorable and brutal military conduct in Gaza, I fear there will eventually be dire consequences for our country.” JDS Retired US Marine Corps

“Don’t worry about American pressure, we the Jewish people control America.” Ariel Sharon, Former Prime Minister of Israel

http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/view/38532

“The Israelis control the policy in the congress and the senate.” Senator Fullbright, Chair of Senate Foreign Relations Committee:  10/07/1973 on CBS’ “Face the Nation”.

“Israel sent a text message to all Gazans to evacuate, which other country would do that” Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY at 1/11/09 NYC rally. Comment: … Yes, you are right Senator, no other country would do that to people who have no food, homes or medicine, let alone cell phones!

TAKE ACTION NOW:

  • In spite of our financial crisis, US is giving 3 billion every year to Israel, which is used for killing people. US taxpayers’ money should be used for peace not bombs. What could Americans do with this money?
  • The UN has issued 55 resolutions condemning the actions of Israel; USA vetoed all 55 resolutions

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_Nations_resolutions_concerning_Israel

  • January 15th 2009, Israel refused to abide by the UN resolution 1860 calling for an immediate cease-fire, the wording of which were drafted by Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1054201.html

  • Such actions are producing a generation who hates Israel and its supporter US. This will lead to more terrorism and violence against US citizens and interests across the world. Israel will take down the USA with it .
  • The USA has unconditionally supported Israel with no concept of morality and justice. This is the real reason “Why they hate us?”

Israel does not allow media into Gaza
