Override Obama’s abandonment of Israel
Give Congress ammunition it needs to defend Jewish state
Posted: May 27, 2009
WASHINGTON – Are you concerned about Barack Obama’s pursuit of a new U.S. policy in the Middle East – one that critics argue amounts to the abandonment of the state of Israel?
WND is making it possible for you to a part of preserving the U.S.’ good relationship with Israel.
Israel is dire straits, Klein writes. And those responsible are not just the terrorists plotting its destruction but also the political elites within its borders. Drawing on in-the-field reporting and research that has brought him to the front lines of the Middle East news cycle, acclaimed journalist Aaron Klein spells out the shocking truth.
In this groundbreaking work, Klein shows how Israel is often its own worst enemy. And how Hamas, Iran and Palestinian terrorists are poised to end the democracy once and for all. Unless these perils are countered soon, warns Klein, the only remnant of the Jewish country may soon be an epitaph: “The Late, Great State of Israel.”
Though Barack Obama has made it clear U.S. policy in the Middle East will change under his leadership, there’s still a chance to maintain a supportive friendship with the Jewish state by targeting Congress.
One effective tool is getting Aaron Klein’s important new book, “The Late Great State of Israel” into the hands of as many senators and representatives as possible – because this book lays out the stakes.
Members of Congress are not inclined to abandon Israel, but they need some ammunition to resist the pressures of the Obama administration.
Recently a vast majority of senators urged Obama to mind the “risks” to Israel in any Middle East peace accord as he presses for a so-called “two-state solution” to the six-decade conflict.
“As we work closely with our democratic ally, Israel, we must take into account the risks it will face in any peace agreement,” 76 of the 100 senators wrote Obama in a letter released to reporters. “Without a doubt, our two governments will agree on some issues and disagree on others, but the United States friendship with Israel requires that we work closely together as we recommit ourselves to our historic role of a trusted friend and active mediator,” they wrote.
Democratic Sens. Christopher Dodd and Arlen Specter as well as Republican Sens. Johnny Isakson and John Thune were the lead authors of the letter, which came one day after Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Now is the time for a big educational push in Congress. Send your representative and your two senators copies of this book. Each copy sent will arrive with a letter from you explaining why the book is important – along with the U.S.’s continued support for the Jewish state.
