Take Action For Israel 12

Action 1:
U.S-Israel Cooperation
Please urge your House and Senate members to support resolutions (S. Res. 380 and H. Res. 568) affirming that it is U.S. policy to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability and opposing any reliance on a policy seeking to contain a nuclear-capable Iran.

Action 2:
Dear Friend,
Sunday night CBS reporter Bob Simon presented an episode of “60 Minutes” that was a pathetic excuse for objective journalism.  He begins the segment by remarking on the tragic state of Christians in the Middle East, where violence against Christians has spiked during the recent regional turmoil which some have dubbed the Arab Spring.  His remarks on Christian persecution in the Middle East last all of two sentences before he plunges into an attack on the only country in the region where Christians are safe: Israel.  The irony of this story is remarkable.  

The irony unfolds in the first 30 seconds of the episode as Simon says “… In Iraq and Egypt scores of churches have been attacked, hundreds murdered.  In Syria, revolution seriously threatens Christian communities.  The one place where Christians are not suffering from violence is the Holy Land.”  Simon then goes on to present a skewed narrative filled with misrepresentations and inaccurate facts, which ultimately paint Israel as the Villain.  For those of us who feel deeply for the persecuted Christians of the Middle East, it is hard to comprehend what motivates a Journalist to casually gloss over the travesty of the ongoing annihilation of ancient Christian communities throughout the region, in order to attack the only country in the Middle East where the Christian population is thriving.  

The damage that this piece of irresponsible reporting inflicts is two-fold.  First, and most obviously – it paints the democratic country of Israel in a negative light in a blatant attempt to dislodge Christian support for Israel.  Secondly– it deflects attention from the real tragedy befalling Christians all over the Arab world.  The real news story is that throughout the so called Arab Spring, the rapes, beatings, murders, looting and terror perpetrated against Christians in the Middle East have been endemic.  At a time when Christians are being terrorized by Islamic extremists and complacent regimes throughout the entire region, “60 Minutes” chooses to vilify the only safe haven for Christianity in the entire Middle East.

Click here to write to CBS and tell them that this reckless, politicized reporting will not do!  This is a poor example of news reporting and we expect more from a leading news network. 

Secondly we encourage you to speak out now in support of persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Visit the website which sends a message to Congressional leaders that US Aid of $600 million to the Palestinian Authority is not acceptable, especially with its poor record of the treatment of Christians.   On this site you can also learn the truth about who is actually persecuting Christians in the Middle East (which wasn’t reported by CBS).

Action 3:
60 Minutes Attacks Israel. Help us set the record straight!
Dear Joseph,
The media has done it once again! Last night, the CBS show 60 Minutes aired a story about the Christians of Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The story suggested that the Christian population of these areas is disappearing and that Israel is largely to blame for this crisis. Neither assertion is true.

What a wasted opportunity! The Christians of the Middle East are facing unprecedented peril. As Islamic terrorists have stepped up their attacks on the region's Christians, the ancient Christian communities of Iraq, Egypt and Syria are collapsing before our eyes. Yet 60 Minutes ignored this true tragedy in order to focus its fire on Israel's efforts to protect its citizens from the very same Islamic terror.

60 Minutes could have sounded the alarm about one of the great tragedies of our time. Instead, it chose to attack Israel -- the one country in the Middle East where the Christian population is growing and Christians are truly free to practice their faith.
Click here to tell CBS and 60 Minutes that you object to their decision to air this biased report which scapegoats Israel and ignores the real threats facing Christians in the Middle East.

Please take a minute to send this letter to CBS and 60 minutes now. Make your voice heard!
Set the record straight. Email 60 Minutes.
Blessings to you and those you love,
