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..."

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.

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.

Legislative Priorities 2016

END IRAN’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS ACTIVITY AND OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIONS

Congress should pass legislation this year to continue, or even increase, sanctions on Iran's nuclear weapons, sponsorship of terrorism and violations of human rights. Since Iran’s leaders continually incite genocide against Israel, Congress also should consider the “Genocide Abatement and Prevention Act (GAP Act)” that CIPAC has drafted to indict Iran's leaders and set innovative, new processes to prevent and abate actions to incite or commit genocide against any national, ethnic, racial, or religious group, at the first outbreak of any such actions.
