Congress: Time for a New Foreign Policy!

Each year AIPAC lobbies our Congress for about $3 billion in military aid to Israel. This year AIPAC is also lobbying for war on Iran by pushing for the adoption of resolutions in the House and Senate (S. Res. 380) that would take diplomacy off the table and increase chances of a U.S. war with Iran.

After 10 years of war and our current economic struggles, the last thing we need are more policies that support arms manufacturers in the US when our tax dollars are desperately needed for our schools, hospitals, and green jobs here at home to rebuild America!  

Tell your elected officials how you want your money to be spent. Another war of choice in the Middle East would be disastrous.
President Obama recently requested $3.1 billion in military aid to Israel in his FY2013 budget, an increase from $3.075 in this year’s budget. The U.S. government has pledged $30 billion in military aid to Israel over a 10-year period from 2009 to 2018. This means that no matter what the Obama or any other administration says about peace talks, settlement growth, or the suffocating siege of Gaza, Israel’s government has no incentive to change its policies.
