(WASHINGTON DC) - As of November 14, Israel officially began what it is calling “Operation Pillar of Cloud”, a new war on Gaza. The Israel Defense Force (IDF) has declared that all options are on the table and that they are ready for a ground operation.

Israel's Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai confirmed that yesterday 20 air strikes are only part of a longer-term escalation, "We are in the midst of an attack that will continue and grow. There is no hourglass."

Operation Pillar of Cloud – like previous attacks on Gaza – will target and kill a significant amount of civilians. At the time of writing Israel has already killed at least 15 Palestinians, including at least 6 children, and injured over 150, predominantly civilians.

The U.S. State Department issued a statement which it said the U.S. "support[s] Israel's right to defend itself."

From 2009 to 2018, the United States is scheduled to give Israel--the largest recipient of U.S. assistance--$30 billion in military aid. U.S. tax dollars are paying for this attack on Palestinian civilians.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Protest at the weekly Palestine Vigil on tomorrow, November 16th from 4:15- 5:30 pm at the intersection of Snelling & Summit Avenues in St. Paul. Join with people from across the U.S. this week to protest this attack and U.S. military aid to Israel. As of Wednesday night there are already 14 actions being called for the end of this week! (Initiated by the Anti-War Committee antiwarcommittee.org)
  • Call the State Department and demand that our government insist that Israel stop the attack on Gaza NOW! 1- 202-647-4000. This is the main line. Ask for the comment line (the public of inquiry/public affairs line) and speak out. STOP the Attack on Gaza NOW!

My tax dollars pay for the weapons, Afghan soldiers and Police Officers who execute our troops. It pays for terrorism in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Kenja (our Muslim Presidents homeland). I pay for killing innocent people killed by terrorist attcks. It also pays for killing unborn American babies. You beloved Muslim in Chief has a lot of blood on his hands and he killed more people, including Americans (starting with our soldiers like our seal team and diplomates). So I don't mind giving my tax dollars to a Country who is protecting herself

Editor: Put the bottle down old man, you never learned much and know only a fraction of what you think you know, explain it to St. Peter pal, tell him how you rooted for this blood out of willful ignorance.
