Content of message to audience:

2006 is a midterm election.
Do our 10000 votes count?
The White house is keenly interested in Israel voters.
We have to articulate why we are for the President. "It's the foreign policy, stupid!"
If you care about Israel, you have to vote, and you have to vote Republican.
In 2004, 40K US citizens in Israel voted, of which an estimated 70% voted

In Israel, we know why we vote Republican, because we put Israel high on our

priorities. By communicating, we can try to influence US Jews.
According to recent polls, only 31% of US Jews list Israel as a priority in voting.
The Israel Republican Committee, and all US citizens in Israel who register and vote,

can set a standard, a target, by which USA Jews can decide what their interest should
Americans in Israel recognize that Republicans are now unquestionably more pro-
Israel than Democrats. Three recent resolutions exemplify this:
Security fence resolution: 20% Democrats voted against, because the extreme left was

against it
37 Democratic representatives voted against the policy declaration against Hamas.
[Another important vote]
In each of these votes, Republicanss were closer to 100% pro-Israel
