Tell Elizabeth Warren …It’s not “Progressive” to Justify Israel’s War Crimes in Gaza
September 15, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 11:00 pm
Last month, when questioned by a constituent about civilian casualties from Israel’s attack on Gaza, this is what Senator Warren had to say:
“When Hamas puts its rocket launchers next to hospitals, next to schools, they’re using their civilian population to protect their military assets. And I believe Israel has a right, at that point, to defend itself.”

Our message to Senator Warren:
IT’S NOT “PROGRESSIVE” TO JUSTIFY ISRAELI WAR CRIMES IN GAZA!
This is not “Self-defense!”
Major international NGO’s, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, have called the disproportionate civilian casualties and the attacks on essential civilian infrastructure possible “war crimes”; not legitimate self-defense.
And as Congress reconvenes to consider its own military “solutions” in the Middle East, please contact
- Senator Warren (202-224-4543),
- Senator Edward Markey (202-224-2742), and your own
- House Representative (Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121)
TELL THEM to speak up for Israeli accountability, adherence to international law and compliance with existing statutes regarding the permissible uses of exported US weapons. It’s long overdue to re-examine our policy of unconditionally supplying billions of dollars of arms to Israel every year!
The way to peace is not easy or obvious. But occupation, siege, collective punishment and the mass killing of non-combatants will not take us there. Please work with us to remind leaders like Elizabeth Warren of what ought to be obvious.
Thank you(and please feel free to share this message with your contacts),
