To Palestine from an American citizen,
Please, in this time of extreme oppression you are suffering, pray that the American people come to know, come to understand what they support when they support Israel.
Many Americans are ignorant of the fact that you live in occupied cities, Gaza being entirely walled in.
Many Americans have no idea that you cannot move, build, live, breathe without Israeli approval. They don’t know that Israel controls the amount of food and water you receive. They have never been told that innocent civilians are arrested, imprisoned and tortured by the Israeli government en masse, or that one Palestinian child is murdered every third day by Israeli forces even in times of “peace”.
The American people are being led to believe that Israel has a right to defend itself, but Americans are never told that you have no resources, no army, air force, or navy.
The American people are being told that Hamas is using you as human shields and therefore Israel has cause to kill you and your children. But when Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the UN investigated this claim they found no evidence to support it. And the American media “forgot” to mention it.
Palestinians, pray that the American people learn the truth. Pray for the American people because those who know the truth are marching in the streets for you.
Because the more Americans understand, the less the media and the elected officials will be able to get away with promoting and funding your oppression and murder.
The more they learn the more people will come out of their homes and march in the streets to show their solidarity with you.
The more Americans know the more they will make our leaders see that support of Israel is a crime against humanity and not in is our name.
The more Americans know the more they will realize that we are not free until YOU are free.
In my home town I attended a rally, where thousands of people of all faiths came out to protest the crimes that are committed against you. We took to the streets to make more people listen to the truth, to send our love to you, to make our representatives see they do not represent us, to show them that sending our tax money to Israel make us sick!
Please pray that more Americans learn the truth and that their knowledge leads to change.
