Letter Protests DO Work
Dear Speaker Rivlin,
I am deeply distressed at the continuous destruction of Jewish communities and neighborhoods such as that which may happen in Bet -El in the near future.
As one who wishes to fully support the present government I request that you do your utmost to preserve the rights of Israeli citizens who are entitled to live without fear of being uprooted from their homes.
The consequences of not protecting Jewish families impacts not only those individuals but also erodes the trust of many of us.
I AM ALSO COMPLETELY OPPOSED TO THE AUTHORITY IN THE HANDS OF DEFENSE MINISTER, EHUD BARAK, WHO HAS REPEATEDLY DISPLAYED SUCH LACK OF HUMANITY TOWARD FELLOW JEWS.
WE NEED AN IMMEDIATE CHANGE IN THIS AND REQUEST THAT YOU START BY DOING ALL IN YOUR POWER TO PREVENT THE POSSIBLE DESTRUCTION OF THE BET-EL NEIGHBORHOOD.
This letter prompted a response-here is the reply from the MK's office:
We received your latter at the Knesset's Spear Rivlin.
MK Rivlin is trying to do what he can to avoid distraction of Jewish communities and neighborhoods in Beith El, Migron and other places.
He hope that there will be good solution to the extremely complicated situation.
Knesset's Speaker Office
