Using a variation of ‘Urgent Call to Ban British Citizens Joining the IDF in Light of War Crimes’


I want to express my deep disappointment in your failure to vote in favour of a Ceasefire. Your unwavering support for Israel in the face of war crimes committed casts judgement on your impartiality and ability to hold effective office, and has potential criminal ramifications.

On October 14th, the International Centre of Justice for Palestinians served written notice to Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer for their intention to prosecute UK governmental officials for their role in the aiding and abetting of Israeli war crimes. I believe your intentional refusal to condemn or criticise atrocities by Israel and their flagrant disregard for international law might make you complicit.

These continuing war crimes have been widely documented by the United Nations, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and the International Service for Human Rights.

War crimes are in direct opposition to self-defence, which has been the justification used by many politicians for Israel’s actions. Highlighting their war crimes does not undermine any war crimes by Hamas, but to ignore the bombardment of civilians dehumanises and devalues the lives of real Palestinians – who are paying the price in their thousands.

Your constituents, including myself, have pleaded with you to back a ceasefire. Humanitarian pauses are not sufficient, as declaring anything as a ‘pause’ sets the precedent for hostilities to resume.

The lack of leadership and condemnation of clear war crimes from our politicians is a stain on our country’s record. I am aware there are multiple legal cases being-made in addition to the ICJP’s. As a constituent in your area I feel a distinct responsibility in holding you accountable too.

If you are not willing to do the right thing and support a ceasefire, I implore you to step down.

Your constituent,
