Emergency Protest Against Escalation of Genocide in Palestine!

No More Nakba's!

When: Friday, May 21st 5pm
Where: Copley Square

Please Join us to demand an end to the genocidal assault on Rafa and Palestine. No more US funds for genocide in Palestine, no more genocide in our name!
This latest "Israeli" attack against unarmed Palestinians in Gaza has seen the largest mobilization of military personnel since the 1967 war. So far 33 Palestinians have been killed, and the destruction and mass murder continues.

The ethnic cleansing "Israelis" destroyed 116 homes in Rafah last weekend, leaving over a thousand people homeless, and hundreds of more homes are destined for destruction.

The eruption of those soldiers into Gaza has caused many civilians to leave their homes with whatever they can carry, in anticipation of the bulldozer tanks.

As if another slaughter were necessary to demonstrate the criminal and genocidal character of "Israel's" agenda for the Palestinians, yesterday "Israeli" troops fired into a march of unarmed children from tanks and helicopters, leaving 10 dead and more than 50 wounded. The hospital that tended to the dead and wounded from the missile blasts -- already overwhelmed with casualties from the previous day's attacks -- was described in the U.K. Telegraph report as having its floors drenched in blood as doctors operated in the corridors.

It's no surprise that the United States Government, which last year prosecuted a criminal invasion against Iraq under the pretext of "combating the use of weapons of mass destruction," and ending that country's so-called aggressiveness towards its neighbors does nothing to stop "Israel's" reign of terror against the Palestinians and continues to fund it. For through its direct aggression against Iraq and its proxy war against the Palestinians through Israel, this government is pursuing the goal of misappropriating the land and resources of indigenous Palestinians and Iraqis for its own use. What the United States pursues both in Iraq and Palestine is complete domination of the Arab world.

To look for terrorists, one need not look any further than the white house, which has been sponsoring the murder of Palestinians since 1948, which together with "Israel" invaded Lebanon in 1982, and which today terrorizes both Palestinians and Iraqis in an attempt to make them accept their unwanted occupations.

No more Nakbahs in our name!

Free Palestine!

Long live the intifada!
