[haw-info] HAW statement on Gaza

The Steering Committee of Historians Against the War deplores the
ongoing attacks against civilians in Gaza and in Israel. We also
recognize the disproportionate harm being inflicted on the population of
Gaza by the Israeli military, which the United States has armed and
supported for decades.

We are especially disturbed that so many Palestinian children are being
killed or wounded in the attack. And we regard as unacceptable the
failure of American elected officials to hold Israel accountable for
such acts.

As we watch the death toll mount and observe the terror of the trapped
inhabitants in Gaza, we call upon our fellow historians to speak out now
for a cease-fire, for the immediate withdrawal of Israeli troops from
Gaza, and for the suspension of all US military aid to Israel until the
aid is no longer used for the commission of war crimes.

Please write letters to your local or national newspapers or magazines
and contact your elected officials to express your opposition to U.S.
funding of the Israeli military and its attack on people in Gaza.
