The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees is the best place to send money to help the Palestinians who are being brutalized by the Israelis. Here's an address:

The reason that Israel always deliberately, intentionally, and with malice targets any U.N. buildings or facilities they can find, drops bombs on them, kills all the people inside, (like the two U.N. schools they just bombed in the Gaza strip) is because the U.N. is the one international organization that has consistently told the truth about Israel's theft of Palestinian lands and 60-year genocidal programs against the Palestinians, with the incursion into the Gaza strip simply being the most recent.
If you oppose this butchery, send money to the UNRWA. Then send an e-mail (or better still, call) the Israeli embassy and tell them you have sent money to help the Palestinians, and demand that they stop murdering the Palestinians.

Finally, write your Senators and Representatives and local papers and tell them that the U.S. must permanently cut off all aid to Israel. That is the only way to end the ongoing slaughter being carried out by Israel.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is a relief and human development agency, providing education, health care, social services and emergency aid to over four million Palestinian refugees. These Palestinians have had their land stolen, their homes destroyed, their family and friends murdered, with no where to go, no ability to develop a home or an economy due to the regular bombing of their homes by Israel. Israel's most recent international crimes include walling in Palestinians in specific areas, cutting them off from fields, agriculture, water, hospitals, schools, refusing to allow them to leave, even letting people die without allowing them to go to hospitals. These policies are intentional by Israel because they want all Palestinians either to leave the area or be killed. Just like the Nazis did to the Jews in Warsaw, the Palestinians have been walled in, deprived of basic necessities, left to die.
The United States sends billions of dollars to Israel every year. The Israeli politicians take some of that money for themselves and put it in secret off-shore accounts (oh shock, religious people are corrupt?). They take a percentage off the top, launder it back into the U.S. through their "friends" and various front organizations, and that money is then given to U.S. politicians as kick-backs and bribes. The entire system is a criminal enterprise and has resulted in the theft of billions of dollars from American working people. The primary rationalization for sending this money is the propaganda that Israel is "under attack" from the Palestinians. See my earlier post on this (There Are Only 10 Stories In The Entire World), but the fact is that it is the Palestinians who are routinely murdered by the Israelis, not the other way around.
We need to cut off the money. Otherwise Israel will continue its genocidal policies until they have stolen all the land and killed all the Palestinians. Then they'll start on the next group whose land they choose to steal. We also need to stop our own politicians from accepting bribes from foreign countries. Isn't there something treasonous about that?
