October 25 - Please contact Congressional Representatives in Support of Palestinian Human Rights

The Israeli Ministry of Defense designated six leading Palestinian human rights and civil society organizations "terrorist " organizations.  

Rep. Betty McCollum just introduced a Resolution in the House of Representatives opposing the designation of six Palestinian human rights groups as “terrorist” organizations.

Contact Your Member of Congress Today: Ask Them to Support this Critical New House Resolution

Among them: Defense for Children International, an organization that works closely with the No Way to Treat a Child Campaign here in the U.S. (We've endorsed H.R. 2590 which addresses the issue of child detention and imprisonment by the Israeli military.)  

Also Al Haq: A leading human rights documentation and advocacy organization exposing Israel’s occupation and apartheid policies since 1979. (Jonathan Kuttab is a co-founder of Al Haq. Jonathan spoke here in Albany last Sunday and some of us joined him for dinner).

We should call on our Members of Congress asking them to join Rep. Mark Pocan in calling on the Israeli government to rescind this decision. Churches for Middle East Peace is also calling on Israel to rescind this decision.
