Today, Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) led 21 of her colleagues in sending a letter to Secretary of
State Antony Blinken and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, expressesing serious concern for the six
Palestinian human rights organizations Israel designated as “terrorist organizations” last fall.
The letter requests an inter-agency briefing to discuss this designation and the secret evidence distributed
by the Israeli government. The letter urges Secretary Blinken and Director Haines to; call on the Israeli
government to reverse course; to confirm a date for an inter-agency briefing with members of Congress; and provide
a report to Congress on these efforts within 30 days, and ultimately to publicly reject this decision.
