On Friday, March 8, the Israeli military stepped up its ruthless war against the civilian Palestinian population throughout the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip killing an estimated 58 Palestinians and wounding hundreds, apparently in an effort to fulfill Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's threat to 'beat' the Palestinians into submission. Despite this threat, and the latest attacks, Palestinians continue to resist the occupation everywhere.

According to the latest reports, casuality figures are expected to rise as the bodies of those killed continue to lie in the streets in Tulkarm and Bethlehem where Israeli troops are preventing rescue crews from reaching them. Palestinian health care workers and ambulances have been targeted with 3 medics killed and more seriously wounded.

Now more than ever, Palestinians living - and increasingly dying - under a brutal occupation need our solidarity. US taxpayer dollars continue to underwrite Israel's brutal apartheid rule, US built weapons continue to be used to kill Palestinian kids, and the Bush Administration continues to back the Sharon regime.

Stand up for Palestine. Demand a immediate end to the Israeli occupation, halt US funding for Israeli apartheid, and support justice and independence for the Palestinian people.
