Please Support S. 653
Dear [Decision Maker],
The past decade has been one of bloody tragedy for the Christians of the Middle East. Ancient Christian communities in Iraq, Egypt, Syria and elsewhere have been targeted for persecution, terror and murder. As a result, these communities are collapsing before our very eyes. Last week, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 301 by an overwhelming margin. This legislation provides for the appointment of a special envoy for the freedom of religious minorities in the Middle East. It's an important first step. Now it's your turn to act. Senators Blunt, Levin and Blumenthal have introduced a Senate version of this legislation -- S. 653. It is crucial that this legislation pass the Senate as soon as possible. We urge you to please co-sponsor S. 653 (if you've not already done so). In addition, we ask that you press for the prompt final passage of this legislation.
Every day that passes is another day of despair and death for Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. There is no excuse for silence or delay. Please support S. 653 today!
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
