Update on Israeli visa for David Ben-Ariel
Ellen Kinker, representing the offices of Ohio Senators
DeWine and Voinovich , called to report that:
"I have been working on your case and have thus far been
unsuccessful in getting a response from the embassy of Israel in
Washington. I have faxed them a couple of times and I've called
them a couple of times and left voice mails...I don't know if
you have independently been trying as well, but any contact
information would be great since I don't seem to be able to
elicit a response and they haven't returned my calls...".
When I mentioned how unprofessional, she agreed and said she had
never been treated that way before or experienced anything like
it. I later e-mailed her:
From: "David Ben-Ariel"
Subject: Visa for David Ben-Ariel

Following is an excerpt from an Israeli lawyer friend, Howard
Grief: "It is a good idea to request help from both U.S.
Senators representing your state to facilitate your application
to visit Israel as a Christian tourist...If you get no
satisfactory reply from the Israeli Embassy, it would probably
help your case if you could get either Senator...to write
directly to the Prime Minister of Israel, appealing for his help
to let you re-enter Israel."
Here is the information necessary to do just that:
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon
Thank you kindly!
May our Great Creator God soon remove the mountain of obstacles
before me that I may return to Zion! May He remind the nations
that they are but men and continue to work out His great purpose
here below, since He whom God would send man cannot
return. Once I'm back in Israel, it will be as if I had
never left! The unj
ust deportation I endured will be history.
