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.

Oppose The Delegitimization of Israel

Every day, Israel faces unfair criticism from the United Nations, international organizations, and activists that seek to stigmatize, delegitimize and isolate the Jewish state. From the U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to the broader Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, Israel is under assault. Please urge your members of Congress to cosponsor The Israel Anti-Boycott Act (H.R. 1697 and S. 720), which would expand remaining U.S. anti-boycott laws to international organizations like the United Nations and the European Union.

Counter Iran’s Regional Aggression

Iran—the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism—remains the greatest long-term threat to U.S. and Israeli interests in the Middle East. Since the 2015 announcement of the Iran nuclear deal—also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—Tehran has increased its dangerous behavior. America should respond decisively to let Iran know that it will face severe consequences if it does not cease its aggression and comply with its international obligations. Please urge your representative to support bipartisan legislation to counter Iran's malign behavior.

Support Security Assistance for Israel

The United States has long defined Israel’s survival and security as important to its national interests. Accordingly, America provides Israel—the sole democracy in the Middle East—with annual security assistance to help it defend itself, by itself, against mounting threats across the region. Please urge your members of Congress to support full funding of annual security assistance to Israel—$3.1 billion—as well as $600 million in missile defense funding. Additionally, please urge your members to support robust overall funding for the Fiscal Year 2018 International Affairs Budget.

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.
