Israel Update:
Palestinian Chairman Arafat indicates that he may unilaterally declare statehood, October 27, 2000

Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasir Arafat has indicated he may unilaterally declare statehood as early as November 15 in violation of the Oslo Accords. It is urgent that you contact your Senator to send a strong message that the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state is unacceptable! Time is running out for Congress to act on legislation rejecting recognition of a unilaterally declared Palestinian State and cutting of US non-humanitarian aid to such a state. Contact your Senators and urge passage of the Middle East Peace Process Support Act/S.2938 before the Senate adjourns. The House passed the bill on September 27.
