End Israel's Occupation and Blockade
We’re told that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East — yet the majority of indigenous Palestinians are denied citizenship and self-determination.
We’re told that Israel always acts defensively — yet it controls and occupies land it has taken by force from its indigenous people and from three out of four of its neighbors.
We’re told that Israel wants peace — yet it continues to expel native Palestinians and settle immigrant colonists, limiting Palestinians to segregated ghettos.
We’re told that Israel is the Western civilization in a bad Arab neighborhood — yet Human Rights Watch, the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem, and Amnesty International have declared Israel guilty of committing the crime of Apartheid.
We’re told that the U.S. just wants peace in the Middle East — yet our government provides the weapons that bomb, detain, and kill Palestinian civilians.
The U.S. is complicit by denying Palestinian statehood and defunding U.N. organization that do, using its U.N. veto power to protect Israel from human rights criticism, and not enforcing any resolution critical of Israel.
