LETTER TO THE EDITOR | The public needs to know things about Israel

Editor,

Every day, for decades, the U.S. taxpayer is made to give Israel $8 million. That’s $8 million every day.

U.S. law requires that, “no security assistance may be provided to any country the government of which engages in a consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human rights.”

Israel most certainly is guilty of this consistent pattern, and has been for many years. The current Israeli bombing of Palestinian civilians, hospitals and U.N. refugee centers is a war crime, and U.S. taxpayers are being made complicit.

Contact the president, Congress and the Senate and demand that all military aid, financial aid, intelligence assistance and diplomatic cover to Israel be cut off now.
