Phone and email your senators NOW to vote no on Senate bill S.1!
The latest news is that Democrats may try to prevent today’s action on the bill (over concerns over the government shutdown), so phoning & emailing could help block the bill!
This composite bill, the first Senate bill of 2019, would give Israel billions of dollars and would work, in its own words, to “combat BDS.” The fraudulent title is “Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019.”
- For more information on the bill and its four components see my recent article on S.1.
- The first component of the bill gives Israel the largest military aid package in U.S. history – see our previous report on the $38 billion to Israel package, and how it goes far beyond the Obama MOU.
- Go here for more information on how the bill’s “combatting BDS” component violates the First Amendment right to free speech.
- The bill is scheduled to be taken up at 3 EST, at which time the proceedings can be viewed here.
As you can see from the email below, sent out by the Republican Jewish Coalition, all four components of the bill are created on behalf of Israel. The good news is that we have a real chance of defeating it! See below:
