          g.    Resolution for approval
                1.  Shireen Abu Akieh resolution (see below)  

A resolution calling for investigation of the killing of an American journalist and a halt to support for war crimes
 
Whereas the killing of veteran Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh on May 11 was most likely perpetrated by an Israeli sniper, according to eyewitness testimony from other journalists and forensic analysis by the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem and a subsequent CNN investigation debunking the Israeli military’s claim that Palestinian militants might have shot her; and
 
Whereas more than 50 Palestinian journalists covering the West Bank and Gaza have been killed since 2000, according to the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, indicating that as in other oppressive countries around the world, Israel strives to cover up its violent repression by targeting those who bravely strive to show the world the truth: and
Whereas this year has also seen major increases in the killing of unarmed Palestinian civilians in the West Bank, including children, in arrests, including hundreds of “administrative detainees” without charges or evidence, in demolition of Palestinian homes, in expulsions of whole villages, and in building thousands of new units in illegal Israeli settlements, which along with the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh all reinforce the conclusions of numerous human rights groups, including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and B’Tselem, that Israel is committing the crime of apartheid both inside Israel and in the occupied Palestinian territories;
Therefore, be it resolved that the Democratic Party of Sacramento County urges our congressional delegation to support an independent, international investigation into the killings of Abu Akleh, other journalists and civilians in the occupied Palestinian territories, and to support referrals for war crimes investigations by the International Criminal Court, as the United States has recently done for alleged Russian war crimes against Ukraine; and
 
Be it further resolved that the Democratic Party of Sacramento County urges Congressman Ami Bera and Congresswoman Dori Matsui to follow up with the administration to take seriously their obligation to follow U.S. and international law that bars or conditions military aid to violators of human rights.
