Text on Card:

“[R]ecognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”

- Convention on the Rights of the Child

KILLED. Contrary to myths of Israeli "retaliation," 88 Palestinian children were killed in the first 3 months of the current uprising – before a single Israeli child died and before any suicide bombings. In 2006, 2 Israeli children were killed compared to 152 Palestinian kids.The child on the front of this card was shot in the head, the leading cause of these Palestinian deaths.

IMPRISONED. In recent years, at any given time there have been about 300 Palestinian children held prisoner by Israel. Defence for Children International has documented that children are arbitrarily and randomly arrested, routinely held without charge, subjected to torture, interrogated without a legal representative present, forced to sign statements in a language they cannot understand, and imprisoned for unjustifiably long periods of time.

U.S. FUNDS. The U.S. is enabling this oppression with our tax dollars. More than $10 million per day is earmarked for Israel, with additional subsidies. According to the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, the U.S. has given more aid to Israel than any other nation, over $113.8554 billion in direct aid since 1949. “The U.S. gives Israel all of its economic and military aid directly in cash, with no accounting required of how the funds are used.” In addition to this, WRMEA notes: “the indirect or consequential costs to the American taxpayer as a result of Washington’s blind support for Israel exceed by many times the amount of direct U.S. aid to Israel.”
