Campaign Mounted To Put Pro-Israel Book In Hands Of Lawmakers

A new initiative has been launched to flood U.S. lawmakers with a book outlining the urgent dangers faced by the Jewish state.

"One major concern is that it seems many lawmakers don't understand how America is contributing to the threats facing the Jewish state. For example, how U.S. funding, arming, and training of Fatah forces translates into Fatah terrorism against Jews," said WorldNetDaily Jerusalem bureau chief and Jewish Press columnist Aaron Klein.

Klein's new book, The Late Great State of Israel, details how U.S. funding to Fatah fuels Palestinian terror. Klein also argues some of President Obama's foreign policies may harm the Jewish state, such as proposed talks with Iran and the trumpeting of a so-called Arab Peace Initiative.

WorldNetDaily CEO Joseph Farah pointed to a recent letter from the vast majority of U.S. senators urging Obama to mind the "risks" to Israel in any Middle East peace accord as evidence lawmakers are concerned at the president's Mideast approach.

"Though Obama has made it clear U.S. policy in the Middle East will change under his leadership, there's still a chance to maintain a supportive friendship with the Jewish state by targeting Congress," said Farah.

"One effective tool is getting Aaron Klein's important new book into the hands of as many senators and representatives as possible - because this book lays out the stakes. Members of Congress are not inclined to abandon Israel, but they need some ammunition to resist the pressures of the Obama administration."

Farah's website has launched an initiative allowing those concerned to send their senators and representatives copies of Klein's book. Each copy will arrive with a letter from the concerned citizen explaining why the book - and continued U.S. support for Israel - is important.

The initiative can be accessed online at or orders can be placed by phone at 1-800-496-3266.
