Is your representative on this list?

Thanks to the generosity of Israel along with American taxpayer expense, some of your congress-people are here in Israel as guests of the Israeli government. You can be sure that they will not have on their itinerary any of the horrors visited upon the Palestinians. They will not visit the Apartheid Wall. They will not visit the farms and orchards that have been cut in half by Israel's greed. They will not visit the hospitals and universities that are closed by order of the Israeli Military.

No, they will swim in the pools filled with water taken from the Palestinians and drive on roads that separate Palestinian towns into bantustans. In fact, they will be able be driven all over the occupied territories and never see the grief visited upon Palestinians by the Apartheid Wall or its consequences on a once-thriving people.

We've posted a list of the 29 Democrats who are in Israel instead of tending to the business of the American people. If any of your representatives are on this list, call their offices and ask them why they are visiting a country that denies basic human rights to an occupied people. Then, ask them to withhold all American taxpayer money for this egregious wall/fence. Tell them to build it four feet inside the green line the way any of us have to build our own fences, not 3-4 thousand acres into Palestinian land. In Jayous alone, the Israeli government has confiscated 2500 of the 4000 acres belonging to the farmers for illegal settlements.

This scar on the face of occupied Palestine is not about security. It's about stealing water and resources from the Palestinians.

Sign onto http://www.palsolidarity.org and see the many pictures of the devastation from this wall, then send the photos on to your representatives.

The next list will be the Republicans who are coming to Israel instead of taking care of business in their home states.
