On 12/28/08 Israeli Air Force attacks in the Gaza Strip killed at least 225
and injured hundreds more. These attacks come on top of Israel's siege on
the Gaza Strip, a siege that has created a humanitarian catastrophe in which
the majority of Gaza's 1.5 million Palestinian residents have limited access
to food, water, fuel, medicine, electricity, and other necessities of life.
Israel carried out the attacks today with F16 fighter jets and missiles
provided by U.S. taxpayers. From 2001-2006, the U.S. transferred to Israel
more than $200 million of spare parts for its F16 fleet. In July 2008, the
U.S. gave Israel 186 million gallons of aviation jet fuel. Last year, the
United States signed a $1.3 billion contract with Raytheon to transfer to
Israel thousands of TOW, Hellfire, and "bunker buster" missiles.  In
short, Israel's
attacks today on the Gaza Strip could not happen without the active military
and political support of the United States, funded by our tax dollars.  We
need to take action to protest this attack and demand an immediate
cease-fire.
