Israel’s settler-colonial, apartheid regime has inflicted, yet again, another massive round of devastation against the Palestinian people. Beginning earlier this month with attempts to forcibly expel Palestinians from their homes in Jerusalem and attack worshipers in Al-Aqsa mosque during Ramadan, Israel then pummeled the besieged Gaza Strip, killing hundreds of people, including dozens of children, while Israeli mobs and police attacked Palestinian citizens and the Israeli army shot protestors in the West Bank.
Now that a ceasefire has gone into effect–no thanks to the Biden administration, which blocked the UN Security Council from meeting to impose a ceasefire–we must redouble our efforts to sanction Israel now. There is no going back to the status quo. No more “peace process” talks designed to cement Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people.
As concerned citizens and residents of the United States, we know that Israel’s settler-colonial, apartheid regime is sustained by the support of the United States and paid for by our tax dollars.
