Emergency in Khan al Ahmar: urge your Senators and Rep to go there NOW
When Rebuilding Alliance brought Eid Jahalin, the spokesperson for
Khan Al Ahmar to Washington DC to walk the halls of Congress, the best
advice we got is this: Take Congress there NOW.
By Senate and House rules, the soonest we can take them is 30 days after they apply to the Ethics Committee. Please invite your Senators and Representatives to join Rebuilding Alliance's Leadership Learning Mission to the West Bank, Jerusalem, and Israel starting on August 9th.
Please click the red START WRITING button on the right
to invite your Senators and Representative to authorize their staff to go,
accompanied by constituents from their district!
The goals of this trip will be to:
1). Visit Palestinian villages of Khan al Ahmar, Susiya, and Al Aqaba to stop the demolitions and assure Palestinian planning rights. Discuss how to safeguard the 12,500 Palestinian homes, schools, barns, and water systems currently under demolition orders;
2) Visit the Israeli court where Palestinian children are tried with a 95% conviction rate and meet with parents of and attorneys for the children;
3). Meet with and encourage Palestinians and Israeli who are already working to secure human rights and bring about justice and peace, and recognize their efforts.
