Dear President Biden,
The new extreme-right, Netanyahu-led government in Israel is a disaster for Israeli democracy, Palestinian freedoms and our hope for a better future. They’ve moved quickly to undermine Israel’s democratic safeguards and supercharge demolitions and settlement growth on the West Bank.
Your administration has rightly criticized some of these moves, but it’s time to go beyond ‘business as usual.’ Netanyahu and his extremist partners need to face clear red lines.
To truly safeguard Israel’s democratic future, Palestinian freedoms and US interests, we urge you to meaningfully push back and make clear there will be consequences for the Israeli government acting against our shared values and international law.
