The Time for Action is Now
After ten days of aerial bombardment, Israel has begun a ground invasion of Gaza.
In the past ten days, over 220 Palestinians have been killed, almost 80% of them civilians. One Israeli has been killed. Children playing on the beach, friends watching the World Cup, patients in the El Wafa hospital have all been targeted in Israel’s assault.
With so much violence already, we know that with a ground invasion it can only get worse.
The U.S. acts as Israel’s supplier and enabler, providing $3 billion a year in aid. Each of us, as Americans, is responsible to hold our government accountable. For those of us who are Jewish, we must shout out that these deplorable attacks are not in our name.
This is the moment to stand up. We must speak out against this horror.
JVP chapters around the country are taking action with allies on the streets, in the media, and online. The time is now to take action.
