As you are aware, on March 3 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be addressing a joint session of Congress about the threat posed by Iran.
We are disappointed to report that some local members of Congress have not yet responded to requests for confirmation that they will attend the Prime Minster’s address.
We urge you to contact Representatives Yvette Clark and Nydia Velazquez, and respectfully urge them to attend the speech as a sign of respect to their constituents and of friendship and support to Israel and its people. They must not allow a diplomatic disagreement between friends to undermine the bipartisan concern for Israel’s safety and security.
Please thank Congressman Hakeem Jeffries who decided to attend. We greatly appreciate his leadership and friendship.
We remain grateful to President Obama and the entire United States government for their unwavering support for the security and safety of the State of Israel and its people.
Your opinion matters. Please contact:
