Stop the U.S.-Israeli Assault on the People of Palestine!
EMERGENCY PROTEST MONDAY, JULY 3, 4:30 P.M.
CONSULATE OF ISRAEL, 456 MONTGOMERY ST., S.F.
End the Siege of Gaza / End All U.S. Aid to Israel / Boycott Israeli Goods
The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) launched a
brutal assault on the entire population of Gaza
in the early morning hours of June 28.
U.S.-supplied F-16 fighter-bombers destroyed the
main power station in Gaza and destroyed bridges
on the only major roads linking the northern and
southern sections of the region. Round-the-clock
Israeli artillery shelling is taking place. Most
of the people of Gaza are now without water and
electricity Palestinians are dying. The use of
U.S. planes and other military equipment against
illegally occupied land is a violation of both
international and U.S. law. In a further act of
act of colonial aggression, the IOF has arrested
a third of the members of the Palestinian Authority governing body.
While a great outcry is heard in the mass media
about one captured Israeli soldier, the same
media pays no attention whatsoever to the 9,000
Palestinian political prisoners being held
illegally under terrible conditions in Israeli
prisons. All of them were abducted by the IOF. At
least 335 of these prisoners are children.
Palestinian prisoners are systematically tortured
by Israel, the only country in the world that has legalized torture.
Deliberately attacking the civilian population,
with the intent of causing maximum suffering, is
clearly a crime against humanity. What we are
witnessing today in Gaza is collective punishment
-- a war crime under international law -- against the entire population.
Israel's racist apartheid system and the latest
assault on Gaza is supported by the Bush regime,
Congress and the corporate media, because of
Israel's vital role in Washington's project of
Middle East domination. Israel receives more
military and economic aid from the U.S. -- over
$3 billion annually -- than any other country.
Without that aid and support it receives from
Washington, Israel could not carry out its crimes
against the Palestinian people.
