Hi, this is [name] from [hometown]. As a constituent and an
American Jew who supports Israel, I urge Representative [Rep.
name] to VOTE NO on HR 4681, the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism
Act of 2006.
This bill ties the President's hands in dealing with Hamas,
weakens moderate pro-peace Palestinians, and risks creating a
humanitarian crisis in the Palestinian territories. This
is not in the interests of the United States or Israel.
If possible, I'd like a written response regarding the
Representative's position. Thank you.

Dear Friends of Brit Tzedek
The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote TUESDAY on
HR 4681, the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism
Act of 2006, introduced by Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and
Tom Lantos (D-CA). Though improvements have been made
since its introduction, HR 4681 forfeits the U.S. role in
bringing Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table
and directing them to a two-state resolution of the
conflict. Its sanctions and restrictions weaken moderate
pro-peace Palestinians and embolden extremists, tie the
President's hands in dealing with emergency security crises, and
drastically cut critical US assistance to the Palestinian
people. Call your Representative now!
While there is no doubt that Hamas must renounce terrorism,
recognize Israel, and abide by all previous agreements, this
bill prevents the US government from dealing effectively with
the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority and risks plunging
Palestinian society into an even deeper humanitarian crisis.
For the past three months, Brit Tzedek supporters from across
the country have been telling Members of Congress not to support
this punitive legislation. The final vote is this week!
Call your Representative today!
