We protest the fact that Israel bombed Gaza again this past November, killing at least 145 civilians, 28 of them children and destroying vast amounts of infrastructure including schools, power and water supplies! "It was Israel who broke the ceasefire by killing Ahmed Jabari, the very man who was working on negotiating a permanent truce agreement with Israel. Senior officials in Israel knew about the pending truce agreement, but nevertheless approved the assassination, presumably knowing it would terminate the truce and escalate the conflict with Gaza."
Come and stand with us in solidarity with the 4,600 Palestinian political prisoners, many of whom are still on a hunger strike.
Come to protest the ongoing brutal occupation of Palestine. We, the U.S. taxpayers, give somewhere between 13 and 15 million dollars each day to Israel and Israel buys weapons such as gunship helicopters and Catepillar bulldozers and other weapons from the U.S. to use against the Palestinians and against Internationals who stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
Read some of the Wikileak's Palestine Papers at http://www.aljazeera.com/palestinepapers/
Peace will never be achieved in the Middle East unless there is justice for the Palestinian people and an end to the occupation.
Please call, fax or email the Consul General at the Israeli Consulate and let them know what you think of Israel's terrible ongoing bombings of the people of the Gaza Strip, The people of Gaza have not been allowed building materials to rebuild after Israel massively bombed Gaza in early 2009, killing more than 1,300 Palestinians, at least 85 percent of them civilians, including 434 children, 104 women, 16 medics, 4 journalists, 5 foreigners, and 105 elderly people.
Let them know what you think of the huge Apartheid Wall and the ongoing expansion of settlements in the West Bank and the destruction of Palestinian homes and life and the theft of the water. Does Israel have a civilized and democratic government?
