      need your help 
      Israel's brutal occupation of the Palestinian people is creating a humanitarian crisis.

      The Israeli government has decided to strengthen the economic blockade of the Palestinian people. Dov Weisglass, the Israeli prime minister's adviser, joked: 'It's like an appointment with a dietician. The Palestinians will get a lot thinner, but won't die'. 
        a.. According to a January 2006 UN report, 64% of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories are living below the poverty line. 
        b.. In Gaza, 40% of children suffer from malnutrition because of the Israeli occupation. John Ging, director of UN operations there, said: 'This is the first time bread has been rationed.There's no sugar, oil, milk, the basics.' 
        c.. A UN report in September 2005 said that 60 Palestinian women had given birth at Israeli checkpoints since 2000 and 36 of their babies died as a result. 
        d.. Since September 2000, over 3,800 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army and settlers, and over 29,000 injured. 
        e.. Israel is building an Apartheid Wall that, when completed, will annex East Jerusalem and almost half of the West Bank, leaving the Palestinians imprisoned in a series of ghettos. 
        f.. Over half of the Palestinian population were expelled from their homes in the 1947-49 war, and a second wave of refugees was created in 1967. Today, two-thirds of Palestinians are refugees. 
      Israel must: 
        a.. abide by international law 
        b.. acknowledge Palestine's right to exist 
        c.. recognise the democratically elected government of Palestine 
        d.. end the illegal occupation 
        e.. remove settlers 
        f.. dismantle the Apartheid Wall
