SPEAK OUT AGAINST ISRAELI TERRORISM: CONTACT THE US PRESIDENT AND CALL CONGRESS TODAY!!!

IAP Action Alert

SPEAK OUT AGAINST ISRAELI TERRORISM:

CONTACT THE US PRESIDENT AND CALL CONGRESS TODAY!!!

CHICAGO: Tuesday July 23, 2002 - It is time for people of conscience to break the silence and, beginning from today, speak out with a strong voice against the ongoing US sponsored Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people with the aid of American made, and paid for weapons.

As the world remains silent over what amounts to Israel's continued extra-judicial executions, innocent Palestinian lives are being snuffed out. In the past 24 hours alone, the Israeli military has killed more than 20 Palestinians, which works out to an average of one person murdered every one-hour. Included in this carnage are 2 babies, 7 children under 18 years and 3 women.

These victims are a result of Israel's policy of assassinating Palestinians. Under this extra-judicial policy, Israel essentially makes itself judge, jury and executioner. With the aid of helicopter-gun ships, explosive devices and rockets, 1678 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli military since the start of the Intifada 22 months ago, and more than 20,000 have been injured.

The current international silence and inaction, and US silence in particular, over Israel's policy of extra-judicial executions is tantamount to giving Israel tacit support in its actions. This silence equals complicity. It is time that the US government, who is the number one sponsor of Israel, to stand up for justice and force Israel to abide by international law.

The official Israeli government policy of assassinating Palestinians is a grave violation of the 1949 fourth Geneva Convention and its additional Protocols, and as such is considered a war crime. In addition, US tax dollars are going to Israel which use these funds to fire on innocent Un-armed civilians. This action is a violation of the U.S. Arms Export Control Act.



ACTION REQUESTED:

- Arrange, attend or sponsor a rally in your city on Friday July 26.

- Dedicate Friday Khutbas (July 26) in your mosque to talk about this Massacre and Israeli terrorism, and the responsibility of the whole umma toward Al Aqsa and Palestine.

- Donate Generously for the IAP activities and work.

- Call or fax US President George W. Bush and demand that the US exerts its influence over Israel to stop this state sponsored terrorism.

The phone number for the White House switchboard is: 202-456-1414, and the fax number is: 202-456-2461.

- In addition, call your member of Congress today and demand that the US immediately stop all aid to Israel.

-- You can obtain the numbers of your Congressperson from the following web link: http://clerkweb.house.gov/107/mcapdir1.htm

-- If you are having trouble, you can just call the Capital Switchboard and give them the name of your representative and they automatically transfer you.

That number is 202-224-3121



BE FIRM AND POLITE. Call and tell your elected officials that you are completely fed up and you no longer want your tax dollars to go to Israel to support state sponsored terrorism against innocent civilians, and you want to meet with your representative ASAP to discuss your concerns.

TALKING POINTS:

1. Demand that the Bush administration publicly condemn the ongoing Israeli aggression against Palestinians,

2. Seek an immediate cut off of all military aid to Israel in accordance with the U.S. Arms Export Control Act,

3. Call for an international force to protect civilians in Palestine,

4. Demand that US elected officials meet with American Muslim leaders so that they can participate in shaping foreign policy toward the Islamic world.
