Summary

A crisis of demolitions, confiscations, and evictions by the Israeli Army is underway in the West Bank and Jerusalem - with increasing settler violence also on the rise. To combat this we ask for your help to upgrade our advocacy to reach more constituents, develop case-specific tools, arrange more briefings with American Senators, Representatives, and the U.S. Embassy, and pay for translation and legal fees. Your support also makes urgent action response to 96-hour demolition orders possible.

Challenge

With the world's attention turned to the global pandemic, the Israeli government is expropriating & demolishing Palestinian homes in record numbers. How do we prevent this? All Senators and Reps promise to help constituents resolve urgent issues - this is not lobbying. When at least 10 constituents call, officials are obligated to respond, and in our experience, they will intervene to safeguard Palestinian families, homes, schools, & communities. So let's ask.

Solution

This is a time of change. We take heart that the US Embassy is now accepting briefings on all these matters. With your help, this should lead to policy change. We must engage the US Congress to safeguard Palestinian families, homes, and land. Fueled by constituent letters and phone calls, we arrange briefings and virtual walkthroughs to inform American elected & diplomatic officials to request their intervention. Unfair laws in confiscation & demolition cases make their intervention critical.

Long-Term Impact

Rebuilding Alliance began Contact Congress requests in 2008 when we brought Al Aqaba Village's Mayor to Congress. Everyone emailed their Senators & Reps, who called the State Dept & the Israeli Embassy to keep his village standing. It worked. This West Bank Area C village is thriving- they're even issuing their own building permits, the first in Area C. We are extending this action to other Palestinian families & communities ASAP to safeguard futures & build the basis for peace with justice.
