Siege against Palestine: made in the USA

Israel’s war against the Palestinian people is a U.S. war against the Palestinians.

Every helicopter firing deadly missiles at resistance leaders, every bulldozer tearing apart homes and orchards, every air raid, every tank, every rightwing settlement on Palestinian land, every spy, every false media report — all rely on U.S. money and power. All are funded because the war criminals and business moguls who run this country are determined to dominate Middle East oil resources and to strangle any Arab revolution that threatens their predation.

But history has surely proven that indigenous peoples deprived of homeland, survival needs, community, culture, and sovereignty will not give up. Palestinians, a people who are being relentlessly attacked, verify this searing lesson. And they need the assistance of U.S. activists.

A mass movement of incensed Americans demanding a halt to all U.S. aid to Israel can stop the conflagration. And you can help build it: write letters to the editor, pressure congressional representatives, join local groups for Palestinian rights, get in the streets, bring resolutions against aid to your unions, and to help the wounded, make donations to the United Palestinian Appeal. (Contact us at 206-722-2453 or FSnews@socialism.com for a sample union resolution and send donations to UPA, 1330 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Washington D.C. 20036.)

When U.S. money stops pouring in, the Israeli government will be forced to stop political assassinations, stop collective punishment, remove the settlers, remove the soldiers, remove the blockades. Nothing else would so free Arabs, Jews, and all the peoples of this tormented land to begin the process of building an equally shared, nonreligious state, one based on meeting people’s needs instead of satisfying corporate greed.
