I never thought the situation in Palestine could become this dire. It is clear that the goal of the Israeli government is total war against all Palestinians in Gaza. The Israelis told Gaza citizens to leave the north to avoid being bombed, and then they started bombing the south. Now they are planning for a year-long war.
This week, the US House of Representatives voted to equate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism (not just anti-Israel). I am not sure how many members of Congress even understand what Zionism means. The Biden Administration has stated that it places no conditions on how Israel uses the massive military shipments being sent to Israel. Congress is about to send even more money for war in Gaza, while the majority of Americans now support a permanent ceasefire.
Our task at Antiwar.com has become monumental. We have expanded our coverage. US support for the war in Ukraine and the budding war against China is still going full speed but Palestine is the focal point. All of us opposing this slaughter are also under attack for simply calling for peace.
We are struggling to keep up with all this. But will continue providing the truth without paywalls and without reservation.
We are beginning another fund drive because we have to.
I hope you are willing and able to provide this support.
