  Should American policy be fair? Or is that unimportant?

The Trump Administration has “raised the idea” (i.e. demanded…) that Israel allow 20,000 illegal Palestinian buildings in Area C.

You'll find that information buried in these articles --  in very small print:

http://www.jpost.com/American-Politics/Trump-faces-deadline-on-Israel-embassy-move-494421

Only about one-tenth (!) of that number (less than 2,500 homes) is even being considered  for Israelis living in the same region  namely Area C (one of the 3 regions in Judea-Samaria which are called Areas A, B and C).

Let us ask our leaders to protest this American policy - isn't  Ambassador David Friedman stationed here in Israel so that Israeli leaders can contact him when they have grave concerns about American policies?

Example letter to Israeli leaders (or write your own):

Dear Minister, dear MK:

Ambassador David Friedman has not yet provided the Israeli and pro-Israel public with any contact information. So, can you as an elected Israeli leader ask him in my name:

1. Why – according to American policy – are Palestinian Arabs supposed to build 10 times more than Jews/Israelis are – in the ISRAELI region of Judea-Samaria where there are many more Israelis and Jews, than Arabs?

2. Shouldn't Israeli/Jews be allowed to build in Judenrein Areas A and B, if Palestinians are being allowed to build in Area C?

Can you also contact Prime Minister Netanyahu and say you don't AGREE WITH American interference in this matter and regard these building permits  as an internal Government of Israel decision (like Arab building in Saudi Arabia and American building in New York)?

Sincerely yours, (YOUR FULL NAME)
