March 2019 Alert:

Tell Your Congressional representatives: 

1) Support HR 810 that would prohibit the use of any funds to implement Trump’s Muslim ban. Sign CodePink petition.  (Note: Both Senators Feinstein and Harris are supporting the Senate’s companion bill S 246)

2) Support the wording of SJ Res 7 that just addresses getting the U.S. out of Yemen. The House passed its companion bill HJ Res 37 that was amended at the last minute to include language intended to silence those who criticize Israel – that language should NOT be included in the final bill.

3) Oppose any legislation that restricts our constitutionally protected right to boycott, this includes HR 336 that contains the Combating BDS Act of 2019  and H. Res. 246: Opposing the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement targeting Israel. These bills are trying to silence those who criticize Israel’s apartheid and abuses.  Sign Jewish Voice for Peace petition to Nancy Pelosi. Click for more info.

4) Oppose H.R. 1372 and S.567  that support Israel’s illegal annexation of the Golan Heights. Click to sign petition opposing these bills.

5) No U.S. war on Venezuela. Support H.R.1004Consider signing the Al Awda Palestinian Statement of Solidarity with the Venezuelan People Resisting Imperialism.

6) End all U.S. aid and weapons sales to Israel until Israel stops practicing apartheid, violating international law and abusing human rights. More info.

► Tell Democratic Leadership: Stand Behind Representative Ilhan Omar, Oppose all Bigotry, and Protect our Right to Boycott
3/5/19: Using a false definition of antisemitism, the House is poised to introduce a resolution targeting Rep. Omar for telling the truth about AIPAC
.   Click to sign Petition.
Also in the House is HR 336, a bill  that includes giving Israel $38 billion over the next decade and the “Combating BDS Act of 2019” that attempts to restrict our constitutional right to boycott.  
   Tell Speaker Pelosi and your representative:
   – Any resolution that condemns one form of bigotry must condemn all forms of bigotry and supremacism based on religion, ethnicity, or race.
– They must protect our right to boycott and vote against HR 336 that includes the Combating BDS Act of 2019 and well as a give away of  tax payer dollars to a human rights violating government.
– Criticizing Israel is NOT antisemitism.
– You appreciate Rep. Omar’s telling the truth about AIPAC and want her supported, not attacked.

► Tell CNN to reinstate Dr. Marc Lamont Hill who was fired for speaking up for Palestinian rights. 

Demand that Israel free Palestinian human rights defender Khalida Jarrar.  The Israelis have held Jarrar without charges for over a year in violation of her human rights.  She is an elected member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, the legislative body of the Palestinian Authority.
Ask California’s senators: Dianne Feinstein and Kamela Harris and Representatives Doris Matsui, Ami Bera, John Garamendi, or your representative to demand that Jarrar be released immediately. Ask Israeli  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to release her now.

More Actions & Recent Alerts:

♦ Thank Representative Ilhan Omar for telling the truth about the Israel lobby and demand that our representatives support her. Rep. Omar is correct that the Israel lobby, like the NRA and other powerful lobbies are powerful because of money.
Call her office (202) 225-4755 or tweet in support of her @Ilhan using the hashtag #IStandWithIlhan.
Call Nancy Pelosi’s office at (202) 225-4965 and voice your opposition to her shameful capitulation to the Israel Lobby. Tell Speaker Pelosi that criticism of Israeli policies and the pro-Israel Lobby is NOT anti-Semitism and to stop conflating the two!

♦ At the end of January, the Senate passed S 1, the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019,  that included provisions criminalizing our right to boycott, which were put in the bill to try to stop the boycott movement against Israel’s apartheid and human rights abuses.  You can thank California’s Senators Feinstein and Harris for voting against S 1. Tell them you want our right to boycott protected and that you also object to the $38 billion in aid for Israel that was included in S 1.
All members of Congress can be reached through the Congressional Switchboard 202-224-3121.
