Israel Under Fire – SFI Action Alert!

Photo: Ziv Koren

As you know, Israel has been under siege for several days and has been fighting back against hundreds of rockets aimed at her citizens. The rocket fire has been going on for years and, today, rockets have struck Tel Aviv for the first time. Yesterday, the Obama Administration released a statement reaffirming Israel’s right to self-defense and last night, at the U.N., U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice did the same.

Now, the United States Senate is considering a resolution that reiterates Israel’s right to self-defense, places the blame squarely on Hamas, and calls on the Administration to continue to stand up for Israel. The resolution is co-authored by Sens. Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

 

Please call your Senators and ask them to cosponsor and support this important resolution!

Calling your Senators is easy (remember: you have TWO so call both)!

Actions

FIND your Senators HERE.

CALL the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Senator’s office.

ASK to speak to the Foreign Policy Legislative Assistant (you don’t need to ask for them by name). If that person isn’t available, that’s okay. Leave the message with the person answering the phone.

BRIEFLY explain why you’re calling. USE the talking points below.

ASK the Senator to cosponsor and support the resolution.

THANK the staff person for their time. If they say the Senator is already supporting the resolution, THANK them again (and again)!

CALL the Switchboard again and call your other Senator!

Talking Points

•  Hamas is waging an ongoing war against Israel and deliberately targeting Israeli population centers. More than 1 million Israelis live within the U.S.-designated terrorist group’s rocket range.

•  Since Saturday, terrorists have hit Israel with more than 350 rockets. Since the beginning of the year, terrorists in Gaza have struck Israel with close to 1000 rockets.

•  The Jewish state, like every nation, has the right to self-defense. No other country in the world faces daily rocket attacks against its civilians, nor would any other country tolerate such violence.

•  It is imperative that the United States continues to stand with its ally in the Middle East and support Israel’s right to self-defense.

    I agree with most of the comments made. Let’s pray, putting action to our prayers by calling our senators. One question: I didn’t see what the Resolution is called & I need to know. God bless Israel.

    By all means we should defend Israel’s right to exist, and defend itself. If necessary we must defend Israel. If we don’t, we will be next.

      To those who hate Israel, hear the Word of the L-rd:

      Ezekiel 38:22 I will punish you and your armies with disease and bloodshed; I will send torrential rain, hailstones, fire, and burning sulfur! Eze 38:21 I will summon the sword against you on all the hills of Israel, says the Sovereign LORD. Your men will turn their swords against each other.

      Eze 38:23 In this way, I will show my greatness and holiness, and I will make myself known to all the nations of the world. Then they will know that I THE GOD OF ISRAEL AM THE LORD.

    Why does the world vilify Israel? Any other country, when faced with rocket attacks from outside their border, would retaliate. Where was the media this past year when Israel was getting attacked by rockets from Hamas? Why is this only getting media attention since Israel killed a Hamas leader? This is anti semitism, pure and simple. Israel, you are in my prayers. I pray that all Islamic militants be banished from this earth and that NO Israeli citizen loses his/her life at the hands of Hamas who is being armed by Iran.Judy

    I think the United States should have been standing with Israel since the rockets started firing. She’s our closest and best ally. It’s ludicrous to not have been there for her since day one.

Rabbi’s Commentary
Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
