Sample  Email template for use with Congressional members with asks for July 2 re-registration


With all eyes focused on Gaza, more Palestinian agricultural land in the West Bank is being taken by Israeli settlers and the military. Tent of Nations, a family-owned farm located in Area C has not escaped these circumstances, and the situation is dire.

The Nassar family has been engaged in a 33-year long legal struggle in Israeli Military and Supreme courts to maintain ownership of their farm for which they have documents of ownership dating from 1916.  Using continual postponement or cancellation of hearings, the military court has delayed a decision.  The 11th hearing is scheduled for July 2nd, and it is crucial that it be held.

Since October 7, the farm and family have been under increased threat of land confiscation, harassment and intimidation from Israeli military and settlers. Roads are being built around and through their property, and an illegal outpost is being created adjacent to their farm.

The Nassars’ ownership of their land is clear and well-documented. The current situation heightens the urgency for these delays to end and a just outcome for the family to be secured: that is, completion of the re-registration process recognizing the Nassars’ ownership of their land.

I am asking you to contact the State Department and request that they do the following:
1.  Pressure COGAT to hold the July 2 hearing and come to a decision that confirms the Nassar ownership of all their land as delimited in their Re-registration Case Nos. 3714/2 and 3715/2
2.   Ask them to support the Nassars by attending the scheduled July 2, 2024, hearing at the military compound at Beit El (north of Ramallah).
3.  Extend protection to the Nassar farm by asking the Office of Palestinian Affairs to schedule regular visits to Tent of Nations including those by Congressional members visiting Israel.

Thank you for your attention to my request, and I look forward to hearing from you regarding your action.
