Take Action

With Gazans already impoverished and struggling to survive, on November 5, Israel completely sealed Gaza's border crossings. This followed an unprovoked Israeli attack on Gaza that killed six Palestinians, despite a ceasefire, and Palestinian rocket fire in response. As a result of Israel's closure, the United Nations has been forced to stop food distribution to 750,000 needy people, and 70% of Gaza is now without power due to a lack of fuel. According to reports, even candles are now in short supply. "Let's see this for what it is." said UN spokesman Chris Gunness. "Fifty-six percent of the Gaza Strip are children. Let us not cause suffering of innocent children." Blocking witnesses, on November 13, Israel denied the entry to Gaza of 20 senior EU diplomats. Israel also has refused to allow foreign journalists to enter Gaza. Foreign Press Association chairman Steven Gutnik called the ban "a serious violation of freedom of the press" and said "it is essential that journalists be allowed to enter the Gaza Strip since it is the foreign media that serves as the world's window into Gaza. Israel allowed a trickle of aid to enter Gaza today. Gaza has 1.5 million residents, the large majority of whom are displaced refugees from 1948.

The Siege of Gaza - Israeli Apartheid, US Imperialism

"The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not make them die of hunger,"
Dov Weisglass, senior advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Prime Minister Olmert, January 2006.

In early 2006, US Deputy National Security Advisor Elliot Abrams, a convicted architect of the Iran Contra scandal, advocated "a 'hard coup' against the Hamas government… the U.S. had to support Fatah with guns, ammunition and training."
Alastair Crooke, former adviser to the EU in Jerusalem

End the siege of Gaza

Boycott the Israeli occupiers, not their Palestinian victims.

“This is the first time an occupied people has been subjected to economic sanctions.… Israel is in violation of countless UN resolutions and refuses to comply with the Opinion of the International Court of Justice. The Quartet has taken no action against Israel but has imposed economic sanctions on the Palestinian people.” - UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories John Dugard, July 5, 2006

Palestinians in Gaza are experiencing an unprecedented crisis, triggered by US/Israeli-imposed siege, sanctions, and efforts to create a civil war. The siege on Gaza is another example of the US/Israeli effort to reshape the region and install friendly regimes by promoting war, civil strife and economic blackmail.
