ACTION ALERT: DEFUND THE UNITED NATIONS
 
Staff
 

 

From the Jewish Voice:
As we begin the joyous festivities of Chanukah, we find ourselves beset with angst over the colossal betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration at Friday's United Nations Security Council. As you are aware, UN resolution 2334 which was passed unanimously because of the abstention of the United States essentially declares that settlements in Israel that are now home to over 600,000 Jews are "illegal" under international law and are considered by the world body to be "an obstacle to peace" in the region. Because we are cognizant of the fact that this resolution will become fodder in the obsessive crusade by the international community to create a terror driven Palestinian state in Israel's backyard, thereby jeopardizing its security, we have taken initiatives of our own to counter these nefarious agendas and we ask that you play an important role in them.
 
We are calling upon our friends, (both Jewish and non-Jewish) to join us on Wednesday, December 28th as we stage a vocal demonstration in which we will be sending a clarion call to the United States government to defund the morally bankrupt and highly tendentious United Nations. We will also be calling upon community leaders, elected officials across the nation and the president-elect to posit themselves in the forefront of the campaign to immediately cease payments to this world body that is purportedly predicated on maintaining the rights and dignity of all nations and the inhabitants therein but has proven itself a propaganda weapon in which to consistently denigrate and attack the one and only Jewish state.
 
Moreover, we will be distributing thousands of copies of the forthcoming issue of The Jewish Voice while we are protesting at the United Nations. Our projected cover story will focus on the plans of President-elect Trump to defund the United Nations, along with the efforts of many legislators from both sides of the aisle who see the issue of defunding the UN as a top priority.

We ask that you join us at 12 noon in front of the US Mission to the UN this Wednesday, December 28.

Make your voice heard and stand with those who support the timeless values of decency, democracy and equality as we show a united front for Israel and America.

About AFSI

AFSI is an educational organization created to support an undivided Israel.

AFSI was founded in 1970 as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, asserting Israel's historic, religious, and legal rights to the land re-gained in the 1967 war. AFSI has argued consistently that a strong, territorially defensible Israel is essential to U.S. and global security interests in the region, and that the "two-state solution," would endanger the world, while bringing the dissolution of Israel.

We are a national organization with chapters throughout the country and members throughout the world. All are dedicated to the premise that a strong Israel is essential to Western interests in the Middle East, and that the Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and the Golan are the best guarantee against strategic vulnerability, as were the Gush Katif communities.

AFSI supports a policy of "peace for peace" between the Arab states and Israel, and rejects "peace for territory." AFSI opposes spending U.S. tax dollars, estimated to be in the billions, to fund a phantom "peace" plan.

Send a message to the detractors of Israel in the media, the Administration, and the public by joining AFSI and becoming active in your community chapter.
