Operation Protective Edge

On July 7, 2014, Israel began Operation Protective Edge to defend its citizens from unprovoked rocket attacks by Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza. While more than 2,700 rockets have been fired indiscriminately at Israel, targeting 6 million Israelis (80% of its population), opponents of Israel have been bombarding Senators and Representatives with letters and calls denouncing Israel's right to self-defense since the very beginning of the operationThis is at a time when Hamas' war crimes and violations of basic morality should be widely condemned by all persons of conscience.

Our community must take action and stand up against anyone who supports Hamas' terrorist tactics. We must rally to thank our Members of Congress for their support of the State of Israel and urge them to continue doing so especially during these critical times.

You must act now to support Israel
Your voice matters!

To send an email right now thanking your Senators and Representatives for passing resolutions affirming Israel's right to self-defense, condemning Hamas and pressing for funding for Iron Dome, please click on this link.

We appreciate the ongoing support from our community.
