♦ Attend McCarty’s Town Hall Tuesday, October 29, 2019, 6pm. Clara Raley Studio for Performing Arts, 2420 N St., Sacramento.
McCarty, who went on a pro-Israel propaganda ten years ago, turned down the invitation last year, but this year has said he is accepting the expenses paid trip. All CA legislators were handed delivered letters last month asking them not to go.
If McCarty goes, he is giving tacit approval to: Israel’s refusal to allow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to take a delegation to Israel; Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza, its maiming and torturing of Palestinian children; Israel’s racist apartheid “National law” passed last year; and Israel’s other human rights abuses.
► Sunday, November 3, 2019, 5:30pm, Rise Against Racism, Protest CUFI at their night to honor Israel at the Abundant Life Fellowship, 708 Atlantic St., Roseville.
CUFI (Christians United for Israel) is the largest Christian Zionist organization working to promote Israel’s ongoing violations of human rights and expansionist policies at the cost of Palestinian lives, rights, and livelihood.
Through mass Christian base-building, government lobbying, and misinformation, CUFI attempts to provide moral cover for Israel’s human rights abuses, suffocating siege on the Gaza Strip, the illegal theft of Palestinian land, and the military occupation that controls nearly all aspects of Palestinian life.
CUFI is premised on Christian Zionism, which purports that modern Israel is a continuation of Biblical Israel and that Christians are responsible for supporting the Israeli regime and its abusive, racist, and apartheid policies.
