    Further progress was made in extracting another few hundred documents from the State Department on the issue of the MIAs. The State Department was not initially cooperative, but they have become more forthcoming after our attorney, Alyza Lewin, filed for the documents under the provisions of FOIA (Freedom of Information Act).

    We met with Rev. William Harter of the National Christian Leadership Conference for Israel (NCLCI) - an umbrella organization of pro-Israel Christian groups. We are looking at several joint ventures including a lobby day/prayer-breakfast on the Hill, and a full page in the Times with signatures of 500 Christian leaders.

    Meetings were held with Bonnie Lipton, the President of Hadassah, and Michael Miller, the Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC). There is an opportunity with both these bodies for a serious joint effort on several projects in the fall.
