From Arlene Kushner in Israel

And so I ask each of you who is a US citizen to help.

Below you will find a short list of the aides to key influential members of Congress with contact information. It is always most productive to contact the aides; a fax or phone call is most effective; e-mail if that is what is possible for you.

The message is simple:

Mahmoud Abbas is not a partner for peace; he has terrorist associations. Pushing negotiations is counterproductive to US interests and goals.

Please, work to stop all pressure on Israel to negotiate and make concessions; the US needs a strong Israel in the Middle East.

Please also work to block further appropriations to the PA, as some of this money will inevitably fund terrorism, which is what the US is supposed to be fighting.

Change the wording a bit to personalize the message. In each instance ask that the message be conveyed to the appropriate Congressperson (or Congresspersons).

Please! Try to do several of these names, and if possible all of them. They all need to hear from us. This is democracy in action and the power is in your hands.

Also, please distribute this information as widely as you can -- on your lists, to family and friends. Numbers count and we need large numbers now.
