UPDATE: These excerpts from JNN newsletter of May 8 provide updates on various issues which have been subjects of CIPAC campaigns.

CONGRESS REJECTS PAYING SALARIES TO TERRORISTS: The Senate on 4 May 2017 passed a $1.1 trillion funding bill which includes a number of provisions to help Israel address security-related challenges. Senators voted 79-18 in favor of the bill, which passed the House the previous day. The Omnibus Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2017 provides $3.1 billion plus an additional $75 million in overall security assistance to Israel. The bill also contains $600.7 million for vital joint USA-Israel missile defense programs, representing a $113 million increase over FY 2016. In addition, Congress included $42.5 million for continued USA-Israel joint development of technologies to address the complex challenge of locating, mapping and destroying terrorist tunnel networks. The bill also includes a provision that reduces aid to the Palestinian Authority on a dollar-for-dollar basis for any support the PA, the Palestine Liberation Organization provides to terrorists or their families. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) welcomed the passage of the bill, saying it “applauds Congress for including key provisions to help Israel address critical security challenges in the Omnibus Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2017.” (INN)

Legislative Priorities 2017

Designate the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as terrorist groups.

The U.S. has listed as terrorists such members, branches, and charities of the Muslim Brotherhood, as Hamas, al Qaeda, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, but has not designated the organization as a whole. The intent of the Brotherhood is stated in its Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America: "The process of settlement is a Civilization-Jihad process...The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers..."

Diplomatic Malpractice - UNSCR 2334

On December 24, 2016, the UN Security Council passed resolution 2334 demanding Israel give up any territory won in defensive wars since 1967.  The failure by the Obama administration to veto this resolution is a shameful abrogation of the United States’ duty to support its most important ally, Israel.

B'nai Brith Canada series "Jews From Arab Lands"

Today, while stories abound of many Arab refugees, few are aware or even acknowledge the forgotten exodus of Jewish refugees from Arab countries. Only in Israel has Nov. 30, the day after the UN voted to approve the Jewish-Arab partition plan of Palestine, been marked to commemorate their plight.

Is Obama preparing a parting shot at Israel?

Last week, the U.N.’s premier cultural agency, UNESCO, approved a resolution viciously condemning Israel (referred to as “the Occupying Power”) for various alleged trespasses and violations of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Except that the resolution never uses that term for Judaism’s holiest shrine. It refers to and treats it as an exclusively Muslim site, a deliberate attempt to eradicate its connection — let alone its centrality — to the Jewish people and Jewish history.
