In response to our last action alert thousands of you sent messages to the State Department and the President. Now, we need you to mobilize once again and get in touch with your Senators.

The Senate is now considering the Omnibus Appropriations bill which would determine appropriation until the end of the 2009 governmental fiscal year. Representatives will often take the opportunity to add amendments to this bill and others which appropriate billions of dollars, to bring funding back to their state.

Senator Jon Kyl (R-Ariz), however, took this opportunity to attack Palestinians. Several amendments offered by Senator Kyl target Palestinians and have nothing to do with his home state of Arizona. In S. Amd. 629 Senator Kyl wants the US to deny resettlement of Palestinian refugees from Gaza. Further, in S. Amd. 631, Senator Kyl wants to place restrictions on reconstruction aid to Gaza which could delay reconstruction efforts significant or even entirely.

It is despicable that Senator Kyl would attacks victims of one of the most destructive wars in recent history by denying reconstruction aid and denying refugees entry to the United States. Throughout its history the United States has been a safe haven for refugees from across the globe. Let the Senator know that his actions are not only Anti-Palestinian, they are Anti-American too!

Act now to contact your representatives and let them know you do not support this disgraceful targeting of Palestinians.

Gaza is already illegally occupied , and now destroyed, by Israel, and now this JERK ( I will not call him "Senator") wants to interfere with what little dignity refugees have left "in our name"? With the American USA seal on it? NO WAY!

I would sign, but getting error . :(

ARREST BUSHCO & RICO PNAC/FARA AIPAC...PNAC is Bush/Cheney's "Helter Skelter" !

We can't take care of the debt we now have and you're wanting to support MORE refugees ?? Wake up !!!

Tex

I do not owe every illegal alien that smuggles their way in, but I do feel an obligation to Gaza refugees that my tax dollars "helped" pay for their predicament. What goes around , comes around, and the chickens WILL come home to roost (again). Call it Kharma, call it guilt, call it whatever you want. If we do not compensate those innocents we have wronged(even inadvertantly), then we are no better than animals and are no longer civilized anyways.

ARREST BUSHCO & RICO PNAC/FARA AIPAC...PNAC is Bush/Cheney's "Helter Skelter" !
