ICYMI: Congressman Wilson Urges American Allies to Oppose Anti-Israel UN Resolutions

Last week, Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) sent 27 letters to nations across the globe regarding the upcoming United Nations General Assembly resolution votes that continue the mandates and funding for the Division for Palestinian Rights (DPR) in the U.S. Secretariat and the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP). These organizations impede the Middle East peace process by creating institutional bias against Israel, as well as waste U.S. resources sent to the UN. 

The letters sent by Congressman Wilson ask these countries to consider changing their votes during the upcoming UN General Assembly sessions. Any show of supportincluding an abstentionis progress toward protecting Israel and the prospects of a peace deal. 

Letters were sent to the following countries:

Argentina; Australia; Benin; Bulgaria; Burkina Faso; Cameroon; Cape Verde; Chad; Colombia; Czech Republic; Ghana; Greece; Hungary; Italy; Latvia; Lithuania; Netherlands; Palau; Poland; Romania; Rwanda; Samoa; Sierra Leone; Slovakia; Tonga; Tuvalu; and Vanuatu.
