Dear Partners in Christ:
Acting out of the commandments of love for God and neighbor and our commitments to honor human rights, I have contacted the Israeli government to urge them to revoke the Order regarding Prevention of Infiltration (Amendment No. 2) and the Order regarding Security Provisions (Amendment No. 112), which were signed on October 13, 2009, and took effect in the West Bank on April 13, 2010. I further wrote to officials of the U.S. government urging them to pressure Israel to this effect. A copy of the letter is attached.
