SAMPLE SCRIPT:

Hi, my name is [name] from [hometown], [state].  As a pro-Israel, pro-peace constituent and member of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, I urge you to support President Obama's Middle East peace initiatives by:

Support the President’s Diplomatic Initiatives in the Middle East!

Dear Friend of Brit Tzedek,

As American Jews and friends, we have a very exciting opportunity to support the President of the United States in his efforts to promote a pro-Israel, pro-peace agenda!  We now have a president whose Middle East agenda is in line with the majority American Jewish opinion, which supports a two-state solution and diplomatic engagement, and so now is the time to act!

Call your Senators and Representatives today and urge them to back the President's Middle East peace efforts!  Tell them to support Obama's request for supplemental aid to the Palestinians and to support Obama's approach to engaging with a possible Palestinian unity government.
 
Finally, tell Congress to support Obama's efforts to engage diplomatically with Iran by rejecting initiatives to impose new sanctions and rejecting efforts to impose impractical timelines to engage diplomatically with Iran.

L’shalom,

Sue Swartz, Chair of Advocacy

Deepa Domansky, Washington Liaison and Advocacy Coordinator
