|During the Bush Administration (January 2001-January 2009), Israel killed at least 3,107 innocent Palestinian civilians, according to B'Tselem: The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories.
In most cases, Israel killed these Palestinian civilians with U.S. weapons provided to Israel at U.S.taxpayer expense.
Israel also used U.S. weapons to injure thousands more innocent
Palestinian civilians, destroy billions of dollars of Palestinian
civilian infrastructure, blockade the Gaza Strip, and build illegal
settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem to enforce its illegal 42-year military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip.
