Joseph Crowley: Stop Supporting Israel’s Terror – Stand for Human Rights!
Representative Joseph Crowley has on many occasions affirmed his support for “the unbreakable bond that exists between (the US) and the state of Israel.” AIPAC and the pro-Israel Joint Action Committee describe him as “A strong supporter of Israel.” Specifically, he has gone on record in 2004 calling the second Intifada a “terrorist war waged against our ally.” In 2006, he co-sponsored – legislation witholding aid to a Hamas-lead Palestinian authority based on Hamas’s status as a “terrorist organization.” In 2012, he co-sponsored the US-Israel Security Cooperation Act, insisting that “Israel has the right to defend herself.” Our representative to Congress has not released a single statement condemning Israel’s mass murder of Palestinians, including most recently during the current bombing of the Gaza strip. He has remained silent regarding the humanitarian crisis in blockaded Gaza and has called Israel “The only democracy in the Middle East” despite the unjust detention and torture of its citizens, the imprisonment of children and the daily humiliations faced by Palestinians. He stands on record against Palestine’s right to unilaterally declare statehood.
Today, Israel bombs Palestinian homes, schools, hospitals and playgrounds. Tanks shoot down children. This is not “self-defense.” This is terror, and Joseph Crowely joins the rest of the US congress in supporting it.
Congressman Crowley: Palestinian blood is on your hands – Stop supporting the murder of Gazans! No more US aid to Israel!
