Joint Statement Calling on Biden Administration to Condemn Israeli government plans to Forcibly Displace Palestinians in Occupied East Jerusalem
I’m proud to announce that ReThinking Foreign Policy is one of 140 groups that co-signed this letter to the Biden administration, calling on it to support international law, condemn Israel’s attempts to displace Palestinians from Sheikh Jarrah, and review the use of US-made armaments in Israel’s home demolitions and expulsions. The letter supports the letter from Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) earlier this week making similar calls.
Additionally, the organizations’ letter calls on the Biden administration to condemn Israel’s illegitimate use of force in Jerusalem and disproportionate attacks on Gaza (note, the letter was initiated before the sharp rise in violence).
The signatories comprise a virtual who’s who of progressive groups and I am proud that RTFP is among them.
