JVP Welcomes Congressional letter Regarding investigating Israel, Egypt Human Rights Abuses

Jewish Voice for Peace welcomes the recent letter sent by members of Congress to the State Department asking for an investigation into possible gross violations of human rights by the police and armed forces of Israel and Egypt. The letter, which was signed by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and ten members of the House of Representatives led by Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA), was sent to the State Department in late February but only recently became public.

Rabbi Joseph Berman, Jewish Voice for Peace’s Government Affairs Liaison:

I wish there were more media coverage of this. JVP is an equal opportunity human rights group. I wish someone from JVP would become PM of Israel.
