“The Defense Department funnels hundreds of millions of dollars into Israel’s deadly military machine; American diplomacy in the Middle East is impotent thanks to the Israel lobby’s manipulation of our State Department; and a host of little known programs such as loan guarantees are a burden taxpayers should not bear.”

The number of Palestinians killed actually was even larger than this – 173, at least 43 of them children (some people died of their injuries a few days later). Details about the children can be seen at Remember These Children, and the names and ages for all those killed in Gaza can be seen at the PalestineFromMyEyes website.

May they all rest in peace and may the world stop these endless cruel and ruthless assaults. Please take action to end the US support that makes all this possible and that prevents justice and peace.

Your Council for the National Interest Foundation is deeply involved in changing—even fighting—policies that affect US-Israel relations …

There is another agency in Washington that CNIF keeps in its sights: the Internal Revenue Service.

The IRS grants non-profit organizations, like the CNI Foundation, the right to receive donations that reduce the federal tax obligations ofcontributors who support our work. Individuals who donate to CNIF are allowed to take a tax write-off on their returns, and many of our supporters take advantage of this option. The deadline to qualify for a deduction on 2013 tax returns is December 31—just a few days away. I want to inform you that IRS rules and regulations may change next year and the option for tax-deductibility to educational groups like CNIF could be restricted.

Thanks to your generous support, CNIF is effectively advocating for policies that will foster peace and justice in the Middle East. That requires research, writing, educational presentations, and newspaper advertisements and billboards (see one here) aimed at awakening the American public on a variety of issues: the plight of the Palestinians; efforts aimed at targeting Iran; and the extraordinary political power of groups such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the other numerous entities that compose the Israel Lobby.

I remind you now that your continued loyalty is needed as we plan for an even more aggressive and expanded CNI agenda for 2013. Including CNIF in your estate planning ensures our fight can continue long into the future; a gift of stocks and securities are a good investment in our work; a tax-deductible donation of $500, $1000, or even $5,000 will help the CNI Foundation move forward—and give you a chance to reduce the bottom line of your tax turn.

Your support in any amount—whether it’s $20,$ 30, or even $100 is very much appreciated—and important.

Please consider taking advantage of the existing IRS tax-deductible statues while you can. Supporters who give $25 or $2500 are the lifeblood of the Council for the National Interest Foundation.

I look forward to working with you in the New Year.

Gratefully,


Alison Weir
President
Council for the National Interest Foundation

P.S. CNIF can provide you with a receipt for all your tax deductible donations in 2012 right after the New Year.

Alison Weir is a journalist and the founder of If Americans Knew, a nonprofit organization that focuses on the Israel-Palestine conflict, specializing in statistical analysis. Weir writes and speaks widely about Israel-Palestine, with particular focus on media coverage. Her articles on the subject have been published in anthologies both in the U.S. and abroad and in diverse online and print publications.

Ms. Weir has given talks at numerous universities, including Harvard Law School, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Yale, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and the Naval Postgraduate Institute; four times at the Asia Media Summit in Kuala Lumpur and Beijing, and has twice given briefings on Capitol Hill.

Former U.S. Congressman Tom Campbell (R-CA) said of her presentation: “Ms. Weir presents a powerful, well documented view of the Middle East today. She is intelligent, careful, and critical. American policy makers would benefit greatly from hearing her first-hand observations and attempting to answer the questions she poses.”

The New York Times reported of her lecture in Greenwich, Connecticut: “When the speech ended, Ms. Weir was met with thunderous applause, and across the room there was a widespread sense of satisfaction that someone was saying what needed to be said.”

In 2004 she was inducted into honorary membership of Phi Alpha Literary Society, founded in 1845 at Illinois College. The award cited her as a: “Courageous journalist-lecturer on behalf of human rights. The first woman to receive an honorary membership in Phi Alpha history.”
