Virtual March On The White House

The National Unity Coalition for Israel has launched a campaign to stop the current course of the so-called roadmap.

ACTION

1. Read the press release below.

2. Send a fax (or letter or email) to President Bush expressing your views on the "road map". Israel should not be asked to take any steps that compromise its security in any way until the Palestinian Authority has taken at least two concrete steps: (1) disarmed and arrested Palestinian Arab terrorists and (2) ended incitement to violence against Israelis, Jews, and Americans.

A "cease fire", which only allows terrorists to prepare for future attacks and can be reversed at any time, is totally inadequate. Under Oslo, Israel undertook concrete steps and got only violence in return. This mistake must not be repeated.

ANNOUNCING

A Virtual March On The White House - A Grassroots Blitz to Washington

The National Unity Coalition for Israel announced on Sunday, May 18, 2003, at an Interfaith Zionist Summit in Washington, D.C., A Virtual March on the White House. At the Summit, organized by Zionist House and co-sponsored by the Coalition, participants expressed their frustration that there has been no organized opportunity for grassroots Americans to express their apprehension about important elements of the Road Map that would alter US policy toward Israel. In response to the "railroad tactics" being used, the National Unity Coalition for Israel has begun an organized information initiative, termed A Virtual March on the White House to express the concerns and objections of the President's core conservative constituency.

Leaders of the Summit expressed their view that the devastating toll of terrorism by 5 separate terrorist attacks over the weekend is proof positive that Palestinian-Arabs do not want real peace. Esther Levens, CEO & Founder of the Coalition, said, "The Road Map is one more deceptive "agreement" toward the basic Arab and Palestinian-Arab goal of eradicating Israel. Now, with more deaths, the Road Map has been deferred, at least for a short time while the dead are buried. If the Road Map is implemented by US endorsement, the next step will be to bury all of Israel."

The suicide attacks in Israel occurred at the same time the Summit was being held. As Christian and Jewish world leaders were seeking to unify support for the preservation of the biblical and historical rights of Israel, radical Islamic Jihad continued to wreak death and destruction on the ancient Jewish homeland.

Levens said today, "We simply must gain our President's attention by bombarding the White House with our concerns about the obvious negative effect of the Road Map on genuine peace in the Middle East."

National Unity Coalition for Israel, Founded in 1991, is the largest worldwide coalition of Jewish and Christian organizations, with more than 200 groups representing millions of people dedicated to Israel. Though we have many different backgrounds, we have one
common goal: A Safe and Secure Israel.

Israel is not just a Jewish issue. Millions of Christians resolutely endorse the principle of peace with security for the state of Israel. Because we work closely together and speak with a united voice, our message is being heard!
