Call your Senator: Commemorate the Reunification of Jerusalem

In two weeks, June 7th will mark the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the Jewish people’s historic and spiritual capital for over 3,000 years. Between 1948 and 1967, Israeli citizens of all religions and Jews of all nationalities were denied access to Jerusalem's Old City and holy sites, including the Western Wall. Immediately after reunifying Jerusalem, Israel abolished restrictions on the free exercise of religion for all people.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem's reunification, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) have introduced a bipartisan resolution (S.Res.176) that reaffirms support for “Israel’s commitment to religious freedom and administration of holy sites in Jerusalem" and commends the "mutually beneficial American-Israeli relationship.”


Thanks to AIPAC for the action alert.

To support the commemoration of Jerusalem's reunification:

1.     Call the US Capitol switchboard toll free at 844-801-9984, select “2” to choose to speak with your Member of Congress, and then enter your zip code.

2.      Tell your Senator: "My name is ________, and I’m a constituent of yours. I live in (hometown). I am calling to urge the senator to cosponsor S.Res.176, a bipartisan resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.”

Call your Representative: End Financing for Palestinian Terror

The Taylor Force Act will stop your tax dollars from funding terrorism, by conditioning future aid to Gaza and the West Bank on actions by the Palestinians to combat terror attacks. These conditions include terminating payments to the families of those involved in attacks. In 2016, Taylor Force, a West Point graduate and former US Army officer, was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist while visiting Israel. The terrorist’s family then became eligible for regular payments from the Palestinian Authority’s ‘Martyr’s Fund.’ In 2015, the United States gave $272 million in taxpayer funds to the Palestinian Authority.

To support the Taylor Force Act, H.R. 1164: 
1.          Call the US Capitol switchboard toll free at 844-801-9984, select “2” to choose to speak with your Member of Congress, and then enter your zip code.
2.         Tell your Representative: My name is ________, and I’m a constituent of yours. I live in (hometown). I want you to stop my tax dollars from funding Palestinian terror by supporting H.R. 1164, the Taylor Force Act. Palestinian terrorists are rewarded with special financial gifts from their government, and the United States sends millions of tax dollars to the Palestinian Authority every year. Please support this critical bill by becoming a co-sponsor. Thank you.
