If RED is your favorite color, this should be your favorite message from Israel.

It’s been 6 weeks since Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hotovely protested the Trump administration’s negative attitude to settlement building.

No progress has been made.  A senior Israeli delegation is in the USA right now, trying to convince Trump and his people to be more understanding.

Jason Greenblatt has disappointed Israel. Talk of moral equivalence – he warned  Israel NOT to build peaceful homes – and beckoned to the Palestinians to… become stronger militarily!

Please urge Israel’s ministers and MKs to take action. This should not wait. An example email, short and simple enough to be understood by any Israeli aide, might say:

re: Draw up your red lines!

Dear Knesset Members, dear Ministers,

The Likud and Jewish Home parties must meet NOW, to decide on Israel’s red lines for construction: how much building is needed, in which Judea-Samaria communities, and on what upcoming dates.

Please explain to Mr Netanyahu that if he cannot keep to the red lines decided upon, he will lose your coalition support.

President Trump’s support is very nice to have, but his own coalition’s support is what Mr. Netanyahu can’t do without!

I will support you and I will tell my friends and family to support you too. Because Israel, to be a viable state, MUST keep, and build, the strategic and historic Judea-Samaria region!

Sincerely, and counting on you,  (YOUR FULL NAME)

The email addresses of Israel’s leaders are:

Thanks for helping Israel. Because yes, doing the above is, believe it or not, as helpful as a financial donation. By simply writing an email - you can increase Israel's strength in a very tough world - if your favorite color is RED.
