Israel is scheduled to begin in mid-August a unilateral “disengagement” from the Palestinian Gaza Strip by evacuating its illegal settlements and military bases there. Israeli officials announced in July that they will ask the United States to pay $2.2 billion for this disengagement. Contact your Members of Congress and the Administration and tell them to oppose Israel’s aid request.
On July 9, 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued an advisory opinion that the Wall Israel is building in the occupied Palestinian West Bank is illegal and must be torn down. Contact the State Department, White House, and Members of Congress and demand that the United States comply with the ICJ opinion and stop providing Israel with aid to maintain the Wall.
On April 9, 2005, the Israeli army killed three Palestinian teenagers who were playing soccer in Block J of the Rafah refugee camp in the occupied Gaza Strip. Eyewitnesses said that the teenagers were killed by heavy machine-gun fire from an armored vehicle.

In June 2002 Israel began working on its largest contstruction project to date, the wall. At completion, the wall will be three times as long and twice as high as the Berlin wall, trapping tens of thousands of Palestinians inside what will effectively be an open air prison. Download "Cementing the Occupation" to learn more about the wall, its status under international law, and US policy.
The United States is providing substantial military, economic, and diplomatic support for Israel’s 37-year old illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. This enables Israel to suppress Palestinian selfdetermination and sets the US apart from the international consensus on resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by implementing United Nations resolutions and international law. When did US support start and why does it continue? What specific forms does it take and what are the prospects for change?
