CIPAC opposes giving our taxpayer dollars to the United Nations (UN) until it ends its selective and unremitting bias and demonization of Israel. America’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said this unfair focus on Israel reflects long-standing “anti-Israel bias”. The most egregious example of UN anti-Semitism is UN Security Council Resolution 2334, whose passage was facilitated by President Obama when he ordered our UN Ambassador at the time to abstain rather than veto this resolution. President Obama did this just before his term ended. This resolution was aimed at isolating Israel and encouraging economic warfare against it. US gives the UN over $8 billion every year, about 25% of its budget.Read more
Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish people for over 3000 years and is the united capital of the modern Jewish State of Israel. During his campaign, President Trump promised to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem. CIPAC members were very disappointed when the President signed another waiver delaying this move for another six months, just as his last three predecessors had done. We believe that Congress should act to remove the waiver.Read more
US Taxpayers should not support payments by the Palestinian Authority (PA) to families of killers. The US currently gives more than $500 million annually to the PA, of which about $300 million is used to pay pensions to families of terrorist “martyrs”. The Taylor Force Act will reduce US aid payments to the PA significantly unless it stops paying convicted Palestinian Arab terrorists and their families. The bill was amended in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to provide that instead of stopping all payments to the PA, payments to the East Jerusalem Hospital Network would continue.
Iran’s illicit nuclear program and support for international terrorism represent a significant threat to the US and an existential threat to Israel. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) of 2015, negotiated by President Obama allows Iran to enrich uranium after 10 years, construct nuclear facilities after 15 years achieve almost immediate nuclear breakout after 13-15 years, assuming that it complies with the terms of the JCPOA, which are entirely voluntary. Iran’s ballistic missile development program, conventional weapons procurement program and support for terrorism are not included in the JCPOA.Read more
