Argument opposed

Punishing Palestinian civilians by cutting off humanitarian aid is not going to win over the Palestinian government.

I agree that no US funding should go towards Hamas, but the PA (while having a unity government in 2014 between Fatah in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza) Hamas does not operate under the Palestinian Authority, which is the central government of the Palestinian Territories in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Realize that Hamas controls the Gaza Strip, so the PA is powerless there (PA also controls Ramallah in the West Bank and about 18% of territory in the West Bank)

We should cut military aid to Israel, not humanitarian aid to Palestine.

    Cutting off humanitarian aid to the victims of genocide is inexcusable.

    Where's the bill to cut funding to Israel? It's an independent state. We need that money for many things right here on our own soil. Please stop funding Israel.
