The time has come for those who advocate for Israel to communicate directly with members of two major US Congressional committees which oversee US middle east policy:

The Middle East Subcommittee of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee

The Neat East Subcommittee of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee

It also behooves those who advocate for Israel to send carefully written letters to the staffers of these committees.

Letters to members of the US Congress should ask the US Congress to
carefully reconsider support for the Fatah dominated PA and for UNRWA, because:.

1. The Fatah dominated Palestinian Authority is anything but peace partner, especially since Fatah declared its commitment to continued war against Israel at the Fatah summit which occurred last August.

2. The Fatah dominated Palestinian Authority conveys a consistent message of continued virulent incitement against the state and people of Israel.

3.The Fatah dominated Palestinian Authority education system inculcates the next generation of Palestinian children to liberate all of Palestine.

4. UNWRA, funded to the tune of 30% of its budget by the US government, continues to confine descendants of Palestinian Arab refugees to the squalor of “temporary” refugee camps,under the specious premise and promise of the right to return to Arab villages from 1948,while fueling the camp residents with a zeal to recover “their lands” within Israel.

5. The Fatah-dominated Palestinian armed forces are now armed and trained by the American military with the idea that the Palestinian armed forces will quash Palestinian terrorist organizations. The PA armed forces have made it clear that they have no intention of quashing any Palestinian terrorist groups.

  1. This is what I sent to the first link that you have. The second link took me to a wikipedia page. Anyhow I am not the most eloquent of writers but I hope that this will do. Thanks for being on Tamar’s show and sharing this site.

    While listening to some international news it came to my attention that we are actively supporting UNRWA and Fatah 2 very anti Jewish/Israel entities. My question would be why? Why would we want to support groups who’s sole purpose is the destruction of Israel? They have proved time and time again that when given support and a chance they will attack Israel. Fatah in particular is little more then a front group for the PLO a very well known Terrorist organization, so again I have to ask why we would support the enemies of Israel?
    We have a moral duty here in the United states to stand with Israel as we have always done and we need to remember that they are truly the only friends that we have in that region.
    So I respectfully call upon you to reconsider our support of these groups and to renew our support for Israel.

    Thank you for your time,
    Ignacio Valdes

  2. This is the most expedient and cost-effective thing we can do. The leverage from each letter that they receive is manifold.

  3. Having learned from David for many years and having worked with him from time to time, I highly recommend the workshop planned for Monday 3 May at 8:00PM at the Israel Center, 22 Keren Hayesod in Jerusalem.

    The upcoming elections in the USA set for November 2nd will have ALL members of Congress up for re-election. This is a perfect time for American citizens to show the Congress our disillusionment with their policies on many subjects, but perhaps especially, the urgency for members of the current Congress and for those seeking election to understand the need to support Israel at this critical time.

    I’m sure that the material and methods presented will also help us fight the fight in many other venues and areas. So, even if you aren’t inclined to contact your Congressman, or even if you are originally from somewhere other than the United States, come out to learn!

In 2009, the center began decided to produce short movies, in addition to monographs, to film every aspect of UNRWA education in a clear and cogent fashion.   The center has so far produced seven short documentary pieces n UNRWA which have received international acclaim and recognition, showing how which UNRWA promotes anti-Semitism and incitement to violence in their education'   In sum, Bedein has pioneered The UNRWA Reform Initiative, a strategy which calls for donor nations to insist on reasonable reforms of UNRWA.
