I just sent CFL's prewritten letter to my reps asking them to stop the impending humanitarian disaster in Palestine. Please take a moment to do so yourself. Last year the United Nations issued a report stating that Palestinians living in the occupied territories were facing a humanitarian catastrophe because of lack of food and the inability of the U.N. to travel freely within the territories and deliver food to families. The report also stated that 9 percent of Palestinian children under age 5 suffer from brain defects caused by malnutrition because of the occupation. Now, the U.S. wants to try to prevent the U.N. from delivering all food to Palestinians, including children. In response to the impending starvation of the Palestinian nation, the Israeli press reported today that the prime minister's advisor Dov Weissglas said that the economic siege on Palestinians is, ??like an appointment with a dietician. The Palestinians will get a lot thinner, but won't die," the advisor joked, and the participants reportedly rolled with laughter.
