URGENT MEDIA ALERT – UCI Agrees with Rep. Ros-Lehtinen

On Thursday, November 29, the Unity Coalition for Israel sent a fax to every member of the House and Senate demanding they cut off funding for Hamas.

In this fax, UCI calls "for the US Congress to immediately cease all US taxpayer money reaching Hamas in Gaza and to hold the terrorist group accountable for its many war crimes against both Israeli and Arab civilian populations."

Esther Levens, Founder and CEO of UCI, stated, "We are very encouraged by Rep. Ros-Lehtinen's statement (as well as by John McCain's initiative) and will continue our campaign to publisize and support their stand on the Consolidated Appropriations Act (Public Law 112-74 )."

Referencing the law, Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, wrote:

“It’s crystal clear that Abu Mazen and his cronies are not partners for peace and do not value their relationship with the U.S. The U.S must stand with our ally Israel and offer no U.S. taxpayer dollars and no political support for the PLO."

UCI points out that American taxpayer funding of the Palestinian Authority ($600 million per year) must be withheld since PA President Mahmood Abbas's supports Hamas attacks on Israel and the illegal unilateral action at the UN yesterday.

In its continuing effort, UCI will be following up on the need to remove funding of Hamas and support Ros-Lehtinen's powerful position.
