Using the capture of one of its soldiers as the pretext, 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. The people of Gaza are now without water and electricity -- and many will die. The use of U.S. planes and other military goods against illegally occupied territories is a violation of both international and U.S. law.
Israel is also threatening to widen the war, sending war planes over Syria to “buzz” the home of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, whose government the U.S. has been actively working to bring down for more than two years. The Palestinian population of Gaza, one of the poorest and most densely populated areas of the world, was already suffering severe shortages of food, medicine and other necessities due to Israel’s blockade of Gaza and the cut-off of international aid to the West Bank and Gaza, in effect since January 2006. The new Israeli assault has resulted in the cut-off of power, water and food supplies to most of the people in Gaza. The situation constitutes a deliberately created humanitarian disaster.
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 against the Palestinian population as a whole. It is just one part of Israel’s colonial policy toward the Palestinians. In historic Palestine, whether the West Bank, Gaza or inside the 1948 borders of Israel, an apartheid system is in place, where many rights reserved for Jewish Israelis are denied to Palestinians. More than six million dispossessed Palestinians are denied the right to return to their homeland.
Israeli apartheid 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. That is why Israel receives more military and economic aid from the U.S. -- over billion annually -- than any other country in the world.
While a great hue and cry is heard in the mass media about one captured Israeli soldier, the same media pays no attention whatsoever to the 9,800 Palestinian political prisoners being held illegally (it is illegal for an occupying power to transfer prisoners from occupied territory) under terrible conditions in Israeli prisons. At least 335 of these prisoners are children. Palestinian prisoners are systematically tortured after arrest. Just two days ago, the Israeli parliament gave the Shin Bet (the secret police) the right to double the time for secret “interrogation” of Palestinian prisoners -- a green light for even greater torture.
The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (http://www.answerla.org), which has organized the largest anti-war protests in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco and in other U.S. cities over the past five years, including the historic demonstration of over 100,000 people supporting Palestinian rights in Washington on April 20, 2002, is calling for and supporting protests at Israeli embassies, consulates and U.S. federal buildings, to demand:The immediate end to the U.S.-supplied Israeli assault on Gaza.
* The release of all Palestinian political prisoners from Israeli jails
* An end to all U.S. aid to Israel
* An end to colonial occupation, support for self-determination for the Palestinian people including the right of return.
* No new U.S.-Israeli war against Syria.
In Los Angeles, A.N.S.W.E.R., its member groups the Free Palestine Alliance and Palestinian American Women's Association, and the National Council of Arab Americans-LA are calling for an Emergency Protest outside of the Israeli Consulate tomorrow - Thursday, June 29, from 4-6 pm. The Consulate is located at 6380 Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles. Bring signs, banners, flags and more to support the Palestinian people.
