My Bill Would Stop US Aid From Funding Palestinian SufferingBetty McCollum - The Nation - On April 22, a letter signed by 331 Members of Congress called for the unconditioned appropriation of $3.8 billion in US military aid to Israel, asserting that “U.S. support for Israel makes the region a safer place and bolsters diplomatic efforts aimed at achieving a negotiated two-state solution". The truth is otherwise. There is no Israeli-Palestinian peace process, making the prospect for a two-state solution appear bleak. Israel does have egitimate security concerns; Hamas firing rockets from Gaza into Israel is an attack that I condemn unequivocally. But Israel can act in the name of “security” without being hampered by any conditions or limits. Our tax dollars should not support Israel’s military occupation, expanding settlements, detaining Palestinian children, demolishing Palestinian homes, annexing Palestinian lands (formally or de facto), and bombing Gaza into oblivion. advancing legislation. The Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act (HR 2590) is a bill I’ve introduced along with 20 courageous colleagues. It would restrict US military aid to Israel from being used to demolish homes, annex Palestinian land, or imprison Palestinian children in military detention facilities. HR 2590 places the bare minimum of restraint on Israel’s blatant violations of international humanitarian law.[ak] 4/6/2021
