Stop U.S. Tax-Funded Aid To Israel Now!

Assalamu alaikum,

The Chicago chapter of the International Solidarity Movement and Northwest Suburban SUSTAIN (Stop U.S. Tax-Funded Aid To Israel Now!) need the assistance of our Muslim friends to arrange free screenings of the powerful video "The Killing Zone" at local mosques.

We have included a link below where you can read about this powerful vide from Channel 4 news in England that documents gross human rights abuses by the Israeli military against both Palestinians and internationals inside the occupied territories of Palestine.

Please contact us at the phone number listed below or via e-mail at either address indicated below. We are also looking for Muslim contacts in Peoria, Springfield, Bloomington, Champaign-Urbana and central Illinois to assist us with showings in their communities.

This offering is extended also to churches, temples, community groups and political organization for their gatherings.
