The Faith Forum on Middle East Policy, of which Pax Christi USA is a member, sponsors a "Third Thursday for Israel-Palestine" action each month. This is the action for April. We encourage you to take action and to share this with others.

Ten representatives and Senator Patrick Leahy (VT) have called for accountability for U.S. military assistance to Israel and Egypt in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry.

The letter, led by Rep, Hank Johnson (GA), seeks answers as to how the Leahy Law is applied to the two countries and asks for an examination of specific cases of possible rights violations.

If your member did not sign, click here and see at the bottom a sample letter you can send to your Member encouraging them to support this effort. You can find your representative's contact information by clicking here.

In Christ's peace,
