We need you! (Christians in Defense of Israel)

Christians in Defense of Israel is rallying friends of Israel to urge Congress to pass the Israel Anti-Boycott Act before it’s too late. We need an additional 10,000 signers for greater impact. Click here to read and sign our STOP THE UN’s ECONOMIC WAR ON ISRAEL! petition.

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is aggressively moving ahead with its updated blacklist of American and international firms doing business with Israelis in the disputed West Bank, east Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights. The UNHRC has already identified 206 firms doing business with Israelis who live or work in the disputed regions.

The Council’s goal is to support the BDS movement (boycott, divestment and sanctions), suppress business investment, and cripple the Israeli economy. The blacklist is an open threat designed to intimidate and scare businesses out of the region.

In response to the UN’s economic assault on Israel and these corporations, both chambers of Congress are considering the Israel Anti-Boycott Act. The Act is a shield to protect American businesses, as well as Israeli firms and Israel itself, from international boycotts–including UN efforts to wage economic war on Israel.

Last week, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs passed the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (H.R. 1967). The bill now goes to the full House for a vote.

+ + Congress must act before the UN releases the blacklist threat!

Palestinian leadership is urging the UN to go public with the blacklist before its planned release date in September. That’s why we are calling on Congress and President Trump to act NOW and approve the Israel Anti-Boycott Act in order to protect American businesses from U.N. and international harassment.

Congressional action is needed before financial damage is done to American firms conducting business in Israel and grave harm is done to the Israeli economy.

Click here to immediately add your name to our petition calling on Congress to pass the Israel Anti-Boycott Act and Stop the UN’s Economic War on Israel!

The UN’s actions are misleading, harmful, and potentially crippling to the Israeli economy. It’s critical you and I urge Congress now to pass the Israel Anti-Boycott Act. This bill is a vital safeguard for Israel and firms doing business in Israel’s disputed territories.

Because this measure may come before the full House soon, we need an additional 10,000 signers as quickly as possible. That’s why I’m asking you to make your voice heard now!

Thank you for taking immediate action on behalf of Israel and American businesses!

God bless you,

Mat Staver
