The MA legislators represent all of us with our tax $$$. This is not a
district issue. Why are out state senators going on a FREE trip to
Israel? Please sign petition below to object and circulate widely.
You may or may not have heard that 10 Massachusetts State Senators are
scheduled to visit Israel next month, on a trip sponsored by the JCRC
(Jewish Community Relations Council) and funded by CJP (Combined Jewish
Philanthropies), both of which are partisan, pro-Israel organizations
that regularly lobby lawmakers on Israel’s behalf. The trip is designed
to present Israel in a positive light and mute international
condemnation of its treatment of Palestinians; its aim is to promote
economic and cultural ties between the state of Massachusetts and Israel.
There is a petition circulating that will be delivered to Beacon Hill
next Monday asking that the Senators not go on the trip.
