Congress today sneaking through $38 billion to Israel – Call now!

  • A bill for a special envoy who will monitor criticism of Israel world wide.

Phone the Congressional switchboard at 202-225-3121 or 202-224-3121 and ask for your Congressional rep. (If you don’t know who that is, put your zip code in here.)
