Pressure Mounts: US Lawmaker Opposes Using US Money To Fund “Israeli” Aggression
By Staff, Agencies
US Congresswoman Cori Bush appealed for the Americans to support the liberation of Palestine in the face of increased “Israeli” aggression.
“The fight for Black lives and the fight for Palestinian liberation are interconnected,” Bush, an African-American Representative for Missouri's 1st congressional district, said on Twitter on Friday.
At least 139 Palestinians, including 39 children and 22 women, have been martyred and about 1,000 others injured in Gaza in the “Israeli” entity’s latest onslaught that began on Monday.
Rep. Bush said that the progressive movement in the United States opposed American tax money being used to fund “Israeli” aggression against the oppressed people of Palestine.
“We oppose our money going to fund militarized policing, occupation, and systems of violent oppression and trauma,” she noted. “We are anti-war. We are anti-occupation. And we are anti-apartheid. Period,” she added.
Other progressive lawmakers have also sounded the alarm as the “Israeli” regime continues to unleash an unbridled campaign of terror on the Palestinians in the blockaded Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
Senator Bernie Sanders called on the Biden administration and fellow lawmakers to “no longer be apologists for the right-wing Netanyahu government and its undemocratic and racist behavior.”
In a New York Times op-ed, the Independent senator from Vermont urged Washington to recognize the human rights of Palestinians.
Independent US Senator Bernie Sanders has condemned unconditional American support to “Israel” and Washington’s disregard to Palestinian rights.
