130 US Jewish Leaders Plead With Ganz To Oppose Annexation Of West Bank

Over 130 American Jewish leaders signed a letter on Monday to Blue and White leaders Benny Gantz (pic above) and Gabi Ashkenazi, urging them to remain steadfast in their “opposition to unilateral West Bank annexation.”

The letter was authored by the Israel Policy Forum, an organization that works “to shape the discourse and mobilize support among American Jewish leaders and U.S. policymakers for the realization of a viable two-state solution.”

Signatories include Rabbis Rick Jacobs, head of the Union for Reform Judaism, and David Saperstein, who served as ambassador for International Religious Freedom in the Obama administration.

The group vehemently opposes Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and instead advocates for a policy of “territorial withdrawal, halting settlement activity, and concessions.”

“We write to you as American Jewish communal leaders who are proudly Zionist, unquestionably pro-Israel, and who have devoted our lives to supporting the State of Israel,” the letter says.

“In the midst of this unprecedented health and financial crisis for Israel, we respectfully urge you not to use the need for unity in the face of emergency to create a different crisis for Israel by moving forward on unilateral annexation,” they said.

The letter also warned, “Should annexation be advanced, American Jews – the majority of whom oppose such a policy – will feel more alienated from Israel as a result.”

The organization advocates for an agreement with Palestinian Arabs based on the principle of “two states for two peoples.”

They warn, “Do not proceed with unilateral annexation (of settlements, settlement blocs, or the Jordan Valley), for Israel will have no control over the ensuing chain reaction.”

The letters come while the leaders of the Blue and White party are negotiating with the Likud over the formation of a unity government.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
