DEAR SENATOR or REPRESENTATIVE:
The future of Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem is in jeopardy. Other non-governmental Christian organizations in Israel are facing the same threat of losing their tax-exempt status.
Prime Minister Sharon pressured the White House to close U.S. Muslim relief organizations in December 2001. Muslim charity funds were frozen and their offices raided.
At a time when Palestinians are facing severe hardships, Israel is making it impossible for Christian or Muslim charitable organizations to accomplish their missions.
By contrast, American Jewish tax-free donations have long helped close the funding gap in Israel’s social services, caused by that nation’s heavy spending on military and defense. From 2001-2002, Israel Now’s campaign raised $400 million, tax-free, to purchase armored vehicles, bullet-proof glass for houses in illegal settlements and support services for Israel Defense Forces soldiers.
Please put an end to tax-exempt status for Jewish agencies collecting billions of dollars each year for Israel if the Jewish State will not end its persecution of non-Jewish humanitarian agencies.
