Bill would block US from funding Israel’s abuse of Palestinian children

A new US congressional bill would prevent taxpayer funds from being used by Israel to violate Palestinian rights and international law.

The measure, HR 2590, was introduced this week by Minnesota Representative Betty McCollum, who called on Congress to “stop ignoring the unjust and blatantly cruel mistreatment of Palestinian children and families living under Israeli military occupation.”

Proud to introduce new legislation: Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act. It's time for Congress to support peace & justice for Palestinians and Israelis.

McCollum’s bill would prohibit US funds from aiding Israel’s crimes of military detention and the abuse and torture of detained Palestinian children, the seizure and destruction of Palestinian property and homes, and the ongoing theft of Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank including East Jerusalem.
