Suggested text opposing Israel's Entry Law for Israel Consulate in Los Angeles

Thank you for adding your voice to the many supporters of Israel in the Los Angeles area who oppose Israel's new "Entry Law".

Suggested text for your message to the Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles is below in a screen shot of their Contact Form. It is written as if you attended the Celebrate Israel Festival on Sunday, May 7, so that should be deleted if it doesn't apply.

Go HERE to get to the Consulate General's Comment Form.

Note: The form limits the number of words in the message, and you can also deliver a message by phone (323-852-5500) or email (consular-global@la.mfa.gov.il). 

Go HERE for our resource page on this issue, including a link to a past ACTION ALERT that has information you will find useful.

We would appreciate you emailing us at apnwest@peacenow.org to indicate you have indeed sent a message to the Israel Consulate. We can be reached via that email or at 323-934-3480 if you have any questions or would like further information.
