The Palestinian people are the victims of one of the worst crimes in modern times. “Ethnically cleansed” from 80 percent of their homeland to make way for the state of Israel in 1948, the Palestinians did not fade quietly into the pages of history. They have waged a heroic struggle against overwhelming odds, facing not only the U.S.-backed Israeli state, but also U.S. imperialism and its client regimes in the Arab world.
Every year, the U.S. government provides billions of dollars in military funding to the Israeli apartheid state. It provides it with F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters and tactical missiles. These are the same weapons that were used to murder over 1,400 Palestinians in the 2008-2009 bombing of the Gaza Strip.
We support the efforts of the boycott-divestment-sanction movement, and demand an end to U.S. aid to Israel. WE STAND WITH PALESTINE!
