Although the media is largely portraying Israel’s actions as defensive,violence in the region did not begin with the kidnapping and murder of the three Israel settlers on June 12, 2014.
In fact, Israel has been kidnapping and murdering Palestinian adults and youth on a regular basis for decades (read about how the conflict was started ), yet this is rarely covered in U.S. news.
As the death toll in Gaza continues to rise, we hope you are continuing to contact your Congress people and Senators, asking them to demand that Israel stop its slaughter in Gaza.
We’ve created a powerful infographic you can share with your friends and family that demonstrates two crucial facts:
1) That the violence in the region began BEFORE three Israelis were abducted on killed on June 12, and
2) That Israel has been killing a shockingly disproportionate number of civilians with its bombs in comparison to Hamas’ rockets, both in the current assault and over the last decade.
