Congressional Bill to Support of the Day

by on September 6, 2019

H.R.2407 – Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act

 

The purpose of the bill reads: “To promote human rights for Palestinian children living under Israeli military occupation and require that United States funds do not support military detention, interrogation, abuse, or ill-treatment of Palestinian children, and for other purposes.”

Currently, the U.S. government does fund the abuse of children living under occupation.  Several, sometimes hundreds, of Palestinian minors are arrested every month by Israel.  The interrogation process is unfair (it often consists of coercion or threats), and the courts have a 97% prosecution rate.

It should be a no-brainer to not fund human rights abuses.  But up to now, only 21 Representatives have co-sponsored the bill.
