- Receiving a briefing from the Brigade Commander and his troops defending against Hamas terrorism in Gaza;
- Meeting with top officials of Israel’s government to hear what lies ahead and to learn how we can help.

Special Diplomatic Mission Extension:
Members of the American Jewish Congress Board of Trustees are invited for an additional series of informal Shabbatdiscussions (sic) with Israeli diplomatic and intelligence experts about the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, with special emphasis on the Muslim Brotherhood and its Jordanian form, the Islamic Action Front.
Following the discussions on Shabbat, the Trustees will travel on Sunday to Jordan where we have been invited for an audience with King Abdullah and for meetings with top Jordanian officials to discuss cooperation to rein in the forces of extremism in the region. Upon return to Israel from Jordan, the Trustees will brief top officials of the Foreign Ministry about our Mission to Jordan, and depart Sunday evening for return to the U.S.
*For information about requirements for joining the American Jewish Congress Board of Trustees, please contact Neil B. Goldstein, Executive Director, at: email@example.com
Dear S. Samuels,
Why are you not also visiting Lebanon and Gaza where war crimes have been and are being perpetrated against the civilian population? Ambulances are bombed, and they can't go on roads because they don't have permission from the Israeli's ... medicines not available, children killed ...
Good idea to inform yourselves of what is really happening?
Such as the Israeli air force using US cluster and phosphorus bombs on the civilians of Lebanon and Palestine. Why don't you ask the pilots about this? Even take tourist photos of them?
What about the Israeli terrorism perpetrated on the Palestinians? Will you please ask the Brigade Commander about this?
Protocol I, Article 85, Section 3 of the Geneva Convention: "An indiscriminate attack affecting the civilian population or civilian objects and resulting in excessive loss of life, injury to civilians or damage to civilian objects is a grave breach of the Geneva Conventions."
