There’s a growing international consensus that action must be taken to end the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

    That is why I have joined over 200 legislators from 13 of Israel’s top military partners to call for an immediate arms embargo on Israel.

    The letter states as follows:

    We, the undersigned parliamentarians, declare our commitment to end our nations’ arms sales to the State of Israel.

    Our bombs and bullets must not be used to kill, maim, and dispossess Palestinians. But they are: we know that lethal weapons and their parts, made or shipped through our countries, currently aid the Israeli assault on Palestine that has claimed over 30,000 lives across Gaza and the West Bank.

    We will not be complicit in Israel’s grave violation of international law. The ICJ ordered Israel not to kill, harm or “deliberately [inflict] on the [Palestinians] conditions of life calculated to bring about… physical destruction.” They have refused. Instead, they press on with a planned assault on Rafah that the Secretary General of the United Nations has warned will “exponentially increase what is already a humanitarian nightmare.”

    Today, we take a stand. We will take immediate and coordinated action in our respective legislatures to stop our countries from arming Israel.
