As part of its campaign to stop US financial support for the Israeli occupation, the American nonprofit organization If Americans Knew launched on Friday a short film, documenting the Israeli killing of 78 Palestinian children in 2021.
The two-minute film, posted on social media and the group’s website, conveys how many Palestinian children have been killed by the Israeli occupation and how.
How many Americans know about this?

If Americans Knew details in the film about how much the US pays to Israel as financial and military aid.
“During Fiscal Year 2020, the US is providing Israel with at least $10.5 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians,” the organization stated.
If Americans Knew has called for Congresspeople to show the film during the meetings of the different Congress committees to educate people about the continuous Israeli violations and crimes against Palestinians.
"[Biden] funds the Israeli military more than…climate response……Per the Paris Accords (and science), US financial…climate response should be orders of magnitude higher. Per international human rights law, US military aid to Israel should be zero."https://t.co/uL4xAC9wdm
