Every year, the United States provides more than $3.3 billion in military financing to Israel—more than all other countries combined.
Israel uses U.S. tax dollars to buy weapons and military resources to help enforce its occupation of the Palestinian territory, keep Gaza under blockade, and continue violating Palestinians’ human rights. Those who support this assistance state that it helps keep Israel secure, but what needs to be clear is that this funding does the opposite by sustaining the occupation and injustice. What’s more, U.S. military assistance encourages arms races, further fueling conflicts and instability in the region.
We know that real security will never come from more militarization—and it’s time for Congress to stop funding Palestinian human rights violations.
Tell your representatives to say NO to more military financing for Israel!
