Progressive Dems Denounce Planned Israeli Annexation

HeadlineJun 30, 2020

Four progressive Democratic congressmembers are reportedly spearheading an effort to condition U.S. military assistance to Israel over its planned illegal annexation of the occupied West Bank. In a letter addressed to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Congressmembers Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Pramila Jayapal, Betty McCollum and Rashida Tlaib quote the U.N. special rapporteur for human rights in Palestine, writing the annexation would “crystalize a 21st century apartheid, leaving in its wake the demise of the Palestinians’ right to self-determination.”
