Stop the War - Israel Britain Alliance

Via Sussex Friends of Israel

The Israel Britain Alliance

One of those times that we need you all to do your bit. We need you to send the following letter encouraging your own local MP to attend an upcoming debate on the Balfour Declaration. Please take literally a few seconds to ensure your voice is heard in Parliament. By signing this letter you will NOT be added to any mailing lists. You will NOT receive any future emails because you signed it. Your details will NOT be seen by other groups ororganizations. Simply click on the following link, add your name and postcode and everything else will be done for you. As the debate is imminent your help is time sensitive so please add your name today!

Parliamentary friends of Israel have secured a debate in the House of Commons to celebrate the Centenary of the Balfour Declaration.

It will take place on Wednesday, 16 November at 9.30am in Westminster Hall.

Working with the Israel-Britain Alliance and their partnership network, which covers every part of the United Kingdom, we have seven days to contact our MPs and let them know that we want them to attend this debate and celebrate this important event.

We shouldn't forget that it was the British Government that was the first major power to recognise the Jewish peoples' right to self determination.

That recognition came in the shape of the Balfour Declaration.

A letter dated 2 November 1917 from the British Foreign Secretary handed to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland by Lord Rothschild.

Debates like this don't happen very often - we have a short window of opportunity to encourage Parliamentarians to attend this debate and support Israel.
