CFL ACTION ALERT: ISRAELIS EXERCISE FREEDOM TO REELECT MASS MURDERER SHARON; U.S./ISRAELI COALITION PREVENTS PALESTINIANS FROM GOING TO POLLS.
This week Israeli's exercised their "democratic" right to reelect Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, a wanted mass murderer currently being investigated in Belgium for committing war crimes against Palestinians and Lebanese civilians. Meanwhile, the United States and Israel have stated that there will never be a Palestinian State if Yassir Arafat remains the democratically elected representative of the Palestinians. Agreeing to U.S./Israeli demands, the Palestinians called for elections, which were supposed to take place a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, the elections were not possible under the current Israeli military dictatorship. We call on our government to demand that
Israel pull out of the currently occupied areas so that a democratic election can take place.
