Ask President Obama to stop supporting a Hamas government
Mr. President -- Stop Supporting a Hamas government
Dear [Decision Maker],
I'm writing to you on behalf of Christians United for Israel to urge you to immediately isolate the terrorist organization Hamas by 1) cutting off all US aid to the Palestinian Authority that is now allied with Hamas, and 2) desisting from all efforts to pressure Israel to negotiate with this government. We appreciated your statement at AIPAC's 2011 policy conference that your administration will continue to "demand that Hamas accept the basic responsibilities of peace, including: recognizing Israel's right to exist, rejecting violence, and adhering to all existing agreements." But we humbly suggest that Hamas will ignore any and all such demands unless they are backed up with action. We fear that your continued funding of the Palestinian government and your suggestion that Israel must "try" to negotiate with this government will only strengthen Hamas' belief that terror works.
You actually recognized what must now be done in your speech at AIPAC's 2008 policy conference, when you stated that "we must isolate Hamas unless and until" they meet the conditions outlined above. The only way to "isolate" Hamas is to immediately suspend aid and support for any Palestinian government which includes an unreformed Hamas no matter how they might camouflage their participation. The failure to take these steps is not isolation, but recognitionWe share your dream of peace in the Middle East. But we recognize that a bloody terrorist organization such as Hamas will only sabotage peace unless they change their ways. We call upon you to replace your current ambiguity with clarity, and to lead the effort to isolate Hamas before terror is vindicated and empowered.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Christians United for Israel.
