Meanwhile, Israeli death squads continue to act with complete immunity killing scores of innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip. Members of Hamas, the democratically elected government, continue to be arrested and imprisoned in complete defiance of international law. These actions follow Israel's massive destruction of Lebanon's infrastructure and the slaughter of innocent civilians which has outraged much of the free world. Many high government Israeli and U.S. officials, by association, are now likely to face war crimes for their illegal actions. Israel is now asking U.S. taxpayers to reimburse them for the costs of the disastrous war on Lebanon. It is time for U.S. taxpayers to demand an immediate halt to unconditional financial and military support to Israel.
