Letter to UN Ambassador Power on Support for Israel at UN

The Honorable Samantha Power
Permanent Representative of the US to the United Nations

Dear Madam Ambassador,

We deeply appreciate your advocacy for Israel's equal treatment across the UN system and its candidacy for a seat on the United Nations Security Council.

Your consistent support for enhancing Israel's role at the UN, both at Security Council and in other forums, is a demonstration of your and President Obama's unwavering commitment to Israel and to ensuring the Jewish State's fair treatment in the international arena. Your efforts this week to facilitate Israel's participation in the UN's JUSCANZ's represented another important step towards Israel's full inclusion in the UN system.

I was also gratified to see your lifelong commitment to fighting atrocities shine through during your recent visit to the Central Africa Republic as an emissary of America’s ideals and its commitment to providing resources and financial support to help end the conflict in the CAR.

Many thanks to you and your staff for all the important and hard work you do to represent the best ideals of our country to the international community, and toward equality at the UN for all Member States, including Israel.

Warmly,
Abraham H. Foxman
National Director
