The following is a sample letter urging our government and other officials to support Israel.


The Honorable (fill in name):

I/We write today to urge you to support Israel as it fulfills the most fundamental responsibility of any government, namely, the protection of its people.

Despite Israel's complete withdrawal in recent years from both Southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, it now finds itself battling adversaries who fire rockets into Israeli cities and use guerilla tactics, such as the kidnapping of soldiers. The attack by Hezbollah, part of Lebanon's government, across the sovereign and internationally recognized border, is rightfully viewed by Israel as an ‘act of war.’

The Israeli government not only has a right to respond to these crimes, but it has an obligation to do so.

I/We urge you to stand behind Israel as it defends itself and works for the speedy release of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers.

Thank you for your consideration.
