Why: Israeli attacks on Palestine and Lebanon have reached new heights with the displacement of almost 1 million people in Lebanon, the killing of hundreds of civilians in Lebanon, and Palestine, the destruction of civilian infrastructure; all of which are crimes against humanity, as the world watches in either silent complicity or outright support. The United States wants to give Israel enough time to ‘finish the job’ and has accelerated shipment of even more destructive bombs to add to the Israeli arsenal which includes illegal phosphorous and cluster bombs being used against the civilian population in Lebanon and Palestine.
We call on all people of conscience to come out and demand an end to the US Sponsored Israeli War Crimes being perpetrated against the people of Palestine and Lebanon.
Stop the Invasion of Lebanon
End the Occupation of Palestine
Stop US AID to Israel
Free Arab Political Prisoners In Israel
