ACTION ALERT: Oppose Anti-BDS Bill in SC Senate
Christian Zionist pro-settler SC Representative Alan Clemmons from Myrtle Beach has pushed an anti-BDS bill H.3583 through the SC House and now it is up for a vote in the SC Senate.  Posing as an anti-discrimination bill, we know the true target of Rep. Clemmon's bill is to bar SC governments from doing business with any business that honors a BDS boycott including of illegal Israeli settlements. What's worse, the Senate Finance committee has added Iran divestment language to the bill.

TAKE ACTION! Call & Email Your SC State Senator and tell them to VOTE NO on H. 3583

ACTION ALERT: Netanyahu Speech Undermines Diplomacy with Iran PDF Print E-mail

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's fearmongering speech to Congress today undermines President Obama and our allies' efforts to negotiate a deal with Iran over its nuclear program.  Containing naked fearmongering, outright lies, illogical statements, unrealistic demands and even a few valid points, Bibi Netanyahu's speech is at best an Israeli election year ploy and at worst an attempt to inject a foreign government's agenda into Congress, sabotaging an Iran peace deal. The time to speak out is NOW...

TAKE ACTION! Tell Your Congressman to Support Diplomacy with Iran

1. Take Netanyahu's Speech with a Grain of Salt

2. Support President Obama and our Allies' Diplomatic Efforts for a Nuclear Deal with Iran.

Email & Call your Congressmen! A list of contact information is below.

*Representative James Clyburn (SC-6) was the lone South Carolina Congressman to have skipped the speech.  Please thank him for taking a stand and voice your support for diplomacy.

Willing to write a letter to your newspaper on this?  Or meet with your Rep's local office?
