Last Saturday, Israel committed yet another atrocity against the Palestinian people. Two Israeli missiles hit a highrise apartment complex in Gaza City, wounding 22 people – half of whom are children. Because of the determination of the Palestinian people, a ceasefire agreement was recently reached, but the siege has only be weakened, not ended
Since July 8, over 2,000 people have been murdered by Israel (80 percent of whom were civilians), including 437 children and 246 women, and over 10,000 people have been injured. Gaza has been under a suffocating siege by Israel since 2007.
In response to these ongoing war crimes and crimes against humanity, a broad coalition of anti-war, Muslim and Arab-American groups have joined together to organize a national march in Detroit, Mich., where one of the largest gatherings of American Muslims will take place on August 31.
