Democratic senators release letter warning Israel against rightful sovereignty

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The letter is backed by the anti-Israel hate group J Street. And what does AIPAC do while J Street and the Democrats smear Israel? Nothing. What are these Democrat Senators warning Israel about? They are warning Israel to not apply sovereignty to the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people. All while they promise to send your money to the neo-Nazi Palestinian Authority. #Exodus!!

Democratic senators release letter warning Israel against annexation

By Jewish Insider, May 21, 2020

On Thursday, a group of Democratic senators released a letter they have been working on for weeks, warning Israeli leaders against efforts against unilaterally annexing portions of the West Bank.

The letter, signed by 18 Democratic senators and authored by Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Tim Kaine (D-VA), is a watered-down version of the letter the trio drafted and distributed to fellow senators earlier this month. The initial draft threatened that unilateral annexation would end bipartisan congressional support for Israel.

The first draft of the letter had garnered seven signatures in addition to Van Hollen, Murphy and Kaine: Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Tom Udall (D-NM) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR).

second draft of the letter, which softened the original language, was circulated among Senate offices and gained additional signatories.

The letter released on Thursday appears to have been further revised. The second draft of the letter suggested that annexation would “undermine” the close relationship between the two nations. The final letter added that “unilateral annexation puts both Israel’s security and democracy at risk.”

The last paragraph of the finalized letter, which was addressed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz, includes a warning that “If you move forward with unilateral annexation, we would not support that action.” Both prior versions of the letter read “If you move forward with unilateral annexation, we could not support that action.”

The final letter’s signatories, in addition to the original 10, include Ed Markey (D-MA), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Tom Carper (D-DE), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), who did not sign on to the letter, told Jewish Insider earlier this month: “I don’t think it is helpful for us to sow dissension in the United States as it relates to the support for Israel.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) issued her own letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the text of which was released last week.

The letters had the backing of J Street, which sent action alerts to its members urging them to lobby their senators to sign onto the letter.
