Halt Weapons and Aid to Israeli Defense Forces

The Biden Administration and U.S. Congress must halt arms and aid to Israel under the LEAHY LAW which prohibits assistance to military units which commit violations of human rights, including but not limited to "torture, extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearance."
The FOREIGN ASSISTANCE ACT also states that no U.S. security assistance may be provided to any country that "prohibits or otherwise restricts, directly or indirectly, the transport or delivery of United States humanitarian assistance."
Therefore, we demand that President Biden and Congress act in accordance with U. S. laws and international human right accords.

Why is this important?

The Biden Administration and Congress continue to pass funding measures in the face of international outcries over the decimation and genocide of the Palestinian people. The public must unite around concrete strategic demands that will reduce and eventually stop the supply of weapons which are used against the civilian population.
