I hope this e-mail finds you well. 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, from 12pm-2pm at the UN Plaza (799 First Avenue), as we stage a series of vocal demonstrations 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 be 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 on all three days. 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.
