Default J-Street Call on House Foreign affairs Leader to Return Donations

Tell the new Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) to return campaign contributions from a top settlement funder. We'll deliver your messages in person to her offices.

Quote:
The new Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Ileana Ros-Lehtinen seems to see nothing wrong with taking large campaign contributions from the most renowned funder of housing for Israeli settlers in East Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods. [1]

This notorious settlement funder -- Irving Moskowitz -- actively works to derail the chances for a two-state solution by funding Jewish settler housing in the middle of Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem. Days ago, Moskowitz’s handiwork made headlines with a demolition of the Shepherd’s Hotel in the East Jerusalem hot spot of Sheikh Jarrah. [2]

The whole world – including the United States under many Presidents of both parties – has condemned and opposed his projects as obstacles to a two-state solution. [3]

But the new Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, is taking his money to support her campaigns? Give us a break.

With the two-state solution hanging by a thread, what a terrible signal it sends for an American political leader to be so cozy with a far-right political funder whose actions undermine the foreign policy of the United States and makes a two-state solution harder to achieve.

We’ll deliver your petition and thousands more to Ros-Lehtinen’s office – and take other steps to let her constituents know how outraged pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans are with the company she keeps.

Like a kid playing with a book of matches, Moskowitz and the settlers he supports are putting not just the Middle East peace process but the safety and security of Israel and the region at risk.

We need to do our part to help stop provocative East Jerusalem construction.

In the face of a new Congress led by people who seem to have no interest in achieving a two state solution, J Street is going on the offense. We’re going to expose and push back against actions that undermine the long-term security of Israel and the fundamental interests of the United States.

We want Congress to know that they can expect to hear loudly and clearly from the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement that there is only one way forward that meets the United States' interests, secures Israel's future, and creates a viable and independent state of Palestine.
