Capitol Hill Policy Briefing
February 2nd, 2009

On February 2, 2009, the US Campaign held a policy briefing on Capitol Hill, entitled “Armed and Dangerous: Weapons Transfers to Israel during the Bush Administration.”

The briefing featured Rep. Dennis Kucinich, National Advocacy Director Josh Ruebner, and Amer Shurrab, a young Palestinian from the Gaza Strip whose two brothers were killed by Israeli soldiers in January 2009.

The briefing was part of a national grassroots lobby day organized by Interfaith Peace-Builders and the US Campaign.  For additional information about the lobby day and grassroots advocacy training, click here.

  2. Israel has the right to defend her citizens.
    If Hamas stops the terror there would be no need for IDF action.
    How about the women and children of Sderot?

  3. Thank you for posting this. Every American should see it. When I watched Amr’s narrative, I couldn’t help also seeing in my mind’s eye the Samouni family, the little kids who huddled beside the corpses of their mothers, the babies with their limbs blown off.

    This has to stop. This just has to stop. Rachel Corrie was right when she said that we should put aside everything that we are doing, and do something about this.
