Palestinian Rights Matter !
Rapid Response Needed
Immediate Background: As the Israeli-Palestinian crisis deepens, AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) and related organizations are generating one-sided pressure on members of Congress to “Stand with Israel. One month ago, these groups prevailed on 330 Congressional Reps to sign a letter, insisting that, “reducing funding or adding conditions on security assistance would be detrimental to Israel’s ability to defend itself against all threats.”
For text of this AIPAC-driven letter and signatories:

Our Representatives and two Senators need to hear from us ASAP:
