Support Freedom & Democracy--End Support for Israel's Occupation

To: President Bush

Dear President Bush,

November 29th was the international day of solidarity with the Palestinian people, marking the 57th anniversary of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly resolution partitioning Palestine into two independent Jewish and Arab States. However, 57 years later, the Palestinian people still cannot exercise freedom, democracy, and self-determination in their own independent state. For the past 37 years, Israel’s illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem—enabled by uncritical U.S. diplomatic, economic, and military support—has prevented the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. We demand that your administration reverse this policy by ending support of Israel’s illegal military occupation and support instead a policy that promotes peace, justice, human rights and international law.
