US, “Israel”, Egyptian Government: End the Siege on Gaza
Open the Rafah Crossing Now!
Right to Food, Medicine and Freedom of Travel for Palestinians
Hands off the Palestinian Resistance
Right to Return for All Palestinians
While Americans are reeling from a financial crisis, losing homes, jobs and access to education, BILLIONS of US DOLLARS are being siphoned to help “Israel” starve and kill Palestinians.
The Israeli siege on the Palestinians has created a humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip of unprecedented proportions. Israeli Deputy Defense Minister promised the siege will effectively be a “Shoah”, Hebrew for Holocaust. As promised, the “Shoah” continues unabated as the world watches and facilitates the slow Genocide of the Palestinian People , all in flagrant violation of international law and the principles of self determination and humanity.
Although the Egyptian People have long stood in solidarity with their Palestinian sisters and brothers, Palestinian have not seen the same humanity from the Egyptian Government. Like leading lambs to the slaughter, time and again the Egyptian government has forced Palestinians back into Gaza and has further tightened restrictions in obedience to the same “Israel” that wages war on the Arab World.
Arabs from across New York join the calls of their Brothers and Sisters across the World, Palestine and Egypt and demand that Egypt remove the closure of the Rafah Border Crossing, allow Palestinians to access food and medicine, and to STOP facilitating the Israeli genocide of Palestinians.
