In lieu of flowers or condolences for martyred Palestinian children or even a White House Eid celebration, we request the United States recognize dignity rights worldwide. A first step in recognizing our humanity would be to not allow a policy of mass slaughter in the sacred Islamic month of Ramadan. Muslim communities have historically been viewed with suspicion and as sub-human. Our communities seek to live and worship like everyone else.

We must not allow U.S. tax dollars to be the currency for ethnic cleansing for Israeli apartheid. We urge President Biden to slash the defense budget instead of strangling our human rights. President Biden seeks to allocate more money to military aid to Israel ($3.8 billion) than to the international climate response ($2.5 billion), according to Stephen Semler, co-founder of the Security Policy Reform Institute. We demand an end to foreign aid to Israel instead of an end to the lives of our brothers and sisters.

We ask the United States demonstrate actual leadership on human rights instead of turning a blind eye to suffering of our brothers and sisters. We urge the United States to recognize the international standards under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Geneva Conventions, and the 1907 Hague Regulations.
