After getting the go-ahead from the Obama administration in a
meeting at the White House on Monday, Israel has launched another major
assault against the Palestinian people in Gaza. Israeli troops have
been assembled at the border and are poised to invade Gaza again.
an act designed to provoke a wider war, missiles from Israel
assassinated a top Hamas official and killed and wounded many others as
its planes and warships have struck more than 20 targets in an ongoing
assault. Reports of the bombardment of Gaza are continuing as bodies,
including those of children, are being brought to the hospital and
The ANSWER Coalition joins with people all over the
world to condemn this act of wanton aggression and murder, and has
issued the following statement:
“All U.S. aid to Israel should be
ended once and for all. The people of the United States stand against
the government that speaks in our name and sends $3 billion of our tax
dollars every year so that Israel can kill and colonize the people of
Palestine. The fact that the Obama administration was briefed on Monday
prior to the attack shows that these latest crimes are a joint
U.S.-Israeli operation. The Pentagon immediately announced after the
first wave of murderous assaults today that Israel was its 'partner.'
Israel may be a partner of U.S. imperialism as it acts as an extension
of Pentagon and CIA power in the Middle East. But it is absolutely not
the partner of the people of this country who are horrified by its
policy of endless war against the Palestinian people and all the peoples
of the region.”
Progressive people gathered outside the State Department this evening and marched to the White House to tell President Obama and his administration that it's well past time to stop funding Israel's genocidal war against the Palestinians. We're gathering again Friday to keep up the pressure! Please share this message with your contacts and on social media, and bring your friends!
