CFL ALERT: End The Israeli Occupation Now


6/5/2003 Marks 36 years of the illegal occupation, subjugation, and humiliation of the Palestinian people by Israel. As supporters of democracy, we must demand that President Bush and the American government truly and justly speak out for self-determination and sovereignty for Palestinians on their own land. Please take a moment to write to the President and to your Representatives and tell them that 36 years of Israeli sponsored apartheid should end. The US must implement a just and peaceful solution to this conflict immediately. Free Palestine!

TALKING POINTS:

* For 36 years the United States has continued to fund Israeli abuses of international law and human rights, contrary to the Arms Export Control Act which states that the US will not supply arms to any country that uses them on unarmed civilian populations.

* Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget. This year alone we have spent over $10 billion (grants and loans combined). This amount surpasses what we give to any other nation including African nations currently suffering from the AIDS epidemic where foreign aid is most desperately needed. With the current economic climate and the need for funding of domestic programs and issues like social security, unemployment, and education, sending aid to Israel is a gross misuse of tax-payer funds.

* Unfettered support for Israel has created a global destabilizing force that threatens the people of the Middle East and the rest of the world. We simply cannot ignore the anger and resentment towards our own nation; we should not continue to support Israel at the expense of our own security.

What 36 years (english)
06 Jun 2003
Outside of Zionist occupied Palestine, there is no Israel. There have been 55 years of Zionist apartied, not 36 years. Just because the christian dominated 1947 UN appeased the Zionist crusade's occupation of part of palestine, that doesn't mean that Zionists are not occupying other lands they have no business even going to as tourists. Sure, 3000 years ago the hebrews murdered the Canaanites, Amorites, etc. and stole the land. But how does that give Zionists any claim to murder for the land. To say Zionists have a right to any of palestine is to say that murder IS a valid means to profit, not only in the past, but in the present, using the past murders as a pretext to murder in the present. Zionism is 100% evil. Saying that Zionists have a right to occupy any of palestine would be like the descendants of nazis claiming they have a right to occupy the Anne frank house, which would be absolutly disgusting. Dump the Zionist crusade entotum. Cut off all relations with Zionists and make it illegal to do so. Like Cuba, American commies can't give support to Castro, even though he is one of the locals. But Americans CAN give support to the Zionist crusader state, even though Zionists are not locals. what happened to equal protection under the law. Not only can Americans donate funds to the Zionist crusaders in Zionist occupied palestine; but the donations they make, they don't have to pay taxes on that cash. So the rest of us are forced, through prejudiced taxation, to fill in the hole left when Americans who do donate cash to Zionists don't pay thier rightfull share. Any American commies here feel the polititian's member gushing up your but so they can buy the religious fanative voters support, and with your taxes, no less.

Great... in addition, all who care, please join in rallying for Palestine, and against the criminal Occupation, on Sunday, June 15 outside the World Trade Center in South Boston. Inside, the annual Israel Day festival will be held from noon to 5:00p.m.; and protestors have the opportunity to make their feelings on the subject visible, starting with a march from the Northern Ave. bridge, assembling @ 11:00 a.m. Pleas try to make it for all or part of this important afternoon-long demonstration in support of Palestine.
