Petitioning Israeli Knesset, Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli Knesset, Bibi Netanyahu: Stop developing settlements in Palestinian territory.

In recent years, a more popular belief has gained circulation that Israel should no longer be supported. As a liberal Jew, I have found it hard to both support Israel as a Jewish state and support their actions as a country. I have written an open letter to Benjamin Netanyahu (below) asking him to stop building settlements in Palestinian territory, because this has begun to jeopardize peace relations in the Middle East and has made it very hard for people such as myself to continue supporting Israel and to tell others to do the same. Thank you so much for signing my petition and have a lovely day!

Letter to
Israeli Knesset, Benjamin Netanyahu
Stop developing settlements in Palestinian territory.

Dear Mr. Netanyahu,

In recent years, a more popular belief has gained circulation that Israel should no longer be supported. As a liberal Jew, I have found it hard to both support Israel as a Jewish state and support your actions as a country. I am writing this letter to ask you to stop building settlements in Palestinian territory, because this has begun to jeopardize peace relations in the Middle East and has made it very hard for people such as myself to continue supporting Israel and to tell others to do the same. I really want to support Israel. I have visited it twice now and I love the culture and the freedom that having a Jewish state gives me, but that freedom is worth nothing if it means I am taking it from other people. I hope you take this into account and think about how your actions affect not only Jews in Israel, but all around the world.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter, and have a lovely day!

Respectfully,
Zoe Friedland
