On Al Jazeera: After Shireen Abu Akleh’s Murder, USCPR ED Demands Accountability


As we mourn Israel’s brutal killing of renowned Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, we demand justice, accountability, and an independent investigation into this war crime. Israel cannot investigate itself. We must end U.S. military funding to Israel, once and for all.

On Al Jazeera today, USCPR Executive Director Ahmad Abuznaid demanded accountability. Watch the interview below.

“Those of us in the United States have to demand of our elected officials that we cannot support the Israeli state as it’s currently situated. We cannot continue to support Israel with weapons and bullets that are gunning down innocent people and members of the press.”
-Ahmad Abuznaid, Executive Director of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights
