Boycott the Gaza Invasion this Thanksgiving

by Chris Iosso
The grim truth about Israel’s cur­rent bomb­ing of Gaza is that the U.S. gov­ern­ment will do very lit­tle to limit the one-sided col­lec­tive pun­ish­ment or cor­rect the claims that this pre-election mil­i­tary cam­paign by the Netanyahu gov­ern­ment is about “defense.” The casu­alty toll already con­firms the vast inequal­ity of power, recall­ing the last inva­sion of Gaza in late 2008 and early 2009 that killed 1400 Pales­tini­ans to 14 Israelis.

PPF Supports Multi-Denominational Letter from American Christian Leaders Urging Congressional End to Unconditional Aid to Israel

The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship (PPF), welcomes and supports the letter recently sent to Congress by fifteen American Christian religious leaders, including the Rev. Gradye Parsons, Stated Clerk of the PC(USA), asking for an immediate investigation into possible violations of U. S. laws by the Israeli government in its use of materials provided by the United States. U. S. laws prohibit assistance to countries engaging in consistent patterns of human rights violations and limit the use of weapons provided by the U. S. to “internal security” and “legitimate self-defense,”specifically prohibiting using U.S. weapons against civilians and civilian infrastructure.
