BREAKING: The Israeli Navy has killed and wounded dozens of brave humanitarian aid activists who were aboard ships that were carrying humanitarian aid to the 1.5 million people in Gaza who are living under an Israeli-imposed siege.
President Obama promised to "make a personal commitment to do all I can to advance the cause of [Israeli-Palestinian] peace from the start of my Administration."
However, Obama is neither condemning Israel for its recent unprovoked attack on the Gaza Freedom flotilla nor suspending military aid to the state. As part of a ten-year agreement totaling $30 billion, the President is asking for $2.775 billion in weapons for Israel.
Ask President Obama and Congress to hold Israel accountable for its misuse of U.S. military aid to attack international human rights activists and occupy Palestinian lands. Our country’s foreign policy should promote human rights, not enable countries to violate them.
