Take Action

You can affect Israel's future and promote America's interests in the Middle East by urging your Members of Congress to support these important initiatives.

Respond to Iran’s Regional Aggression

Congress must send a strong message to the Iranians that the United States will push back if it violates its international obligations. The extension of the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA)—which is set to expire at the end of 2016—is a crucial step to ensure that there are sanctions in place to “snap back” should Iran violate the nuclear agreement. Please urge members of Congress to support the extension of ISA and a tough response to Iran’s ongoing ballistic missile program, including the imposition of tougher sanctions on those responsible for recent missile tests and those entities providing material support to the program.

Fight the Boycott of Israel

Israel has long been targeted with economic warfare, and Congress has a proud history of defending the Jewish state from such attacks. Please press your lawmakers to fight the boycott of Israel. Specifically, please urge your senators to support the Combating BDS Act of 2017.



Support Security Assistance for Israel

On Sept. 14, the United States and Israel signed a new MOU that pledged $38 billion in aid to Israel over 10 years starting in Fiscal Year 2019. Please thank the members of Congress who supported a quick conclusion of the MOU for playing a significant role in this historic agreement. Please also urge support for full funding—$3.1 billion—of security assistance to Israel for Fiscal Year 2017 in accordance with the current MOU, as well as future aid levels in accordance with the new MOU.
