US WILPF ON GAZA: We, the United States Section of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF US) condemn Israel’s current ruthless attacks on Gaza; and condemn the US government for providing Israel with $3.1 billion a year in military aid that is frequently and routinely used against civilians in Gaza and Palestine.

We urge the following actions to be taken immediately:

The US government must:

  • Implore Israel to cease and desist its current deadly onslaught that is wantonly assaulting civilians with every move it makes against suspected “military targets” and support immediate efforts to begin negotiations between Israel and Gaza

  • investigate human rights abuses by the Israeli military using weapons paid for by US taxpayers under terms of the US Arms Control Export Act

  • Put Pressure on Israel to cease and desist its currently human rights abuses of the people in Gaza under the Geneva Conventions and other international laws

  • US citizens should urgently request support of these actions by contacting:

  • The White House Switchboard: 202-456-1414, Comments: 202 456-1111, http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact
