Emergency San Diego Demonstrations! Stop the War Crimes in Rafah Now! Stop US Complicity! End All US Aid to Israel!

In response to the massive ongoing operation by Israeli occupation forces to destroy hundreds of Palestinian homes in Rafah refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, we join in the world-wide protests of these war crimes.  Palestinian refugees in Rafah once again find themselves homeless looking for refuge as Caterpillar bulldozers are used by the Israeli army to demolish their homes. In the last 24 hours, 19 Palestinians including 2 children have been killed and dozens of homes have been demolished. According to UNRWA, in the last three years, over 12,600 Palestinian residents of Rafah refugee camp have been made homeless by the Israeli occupation forces.

This latest attack on the Palestinian people is a continuation of a process of ethnic cleansing that Israel has been accelerating under the Sharon government with explicit approval from the Bush administration. The US must stop its complicity in these war crimes by ending all military, economic and other aid to Israel.
