Take Action: Oppose $3 Billion in Military Aid to Israel in FY2011

February 22nd, 2010

Last month, President Obama sent his FY2011 budget request to Congress, which included a record-breaking request for $3 billion in military aid to Israel.  

Take action now by sending your Members of Congress a letter opposing this request for more military aid to Israel, a country which misuses U.S. weapons to kill and injure Palestinian civilians in violation of U.S. law.  Send you letter by clicking here.

"How Much Military Aid to Israel?"


Click on the video see our response to the President's call for budget accountability.

In your letter to your Members of Congress, you can even let them know how much military aid to Israel your state, Congressional district, county, and city will be providing under the terms of a ten-year agreement between the United States and Israel that lasts until 2018.

You can look up this data, and the unmet domestic needs that could have been funded with this money instead, on our new and updated website www.aidtoisrael.org.  To find out how much military aid to Israel your community is responsible for and what that money could be used for instead, please click here.  

Today, we are launching on-line ads on Facebook and Google to spread the word to our fellow citizens about the true costs--both financial and moral--of U.S. military aid to Israel.  You can help us spread the word even further by making a tax-deductible contribution of $19.19--the average amount that an individual will pay in taxes this year for U.S. weapons to Israel.  Help us educate millions of Americans about the effects of U.S. military aid to Israel and "offset" your taxes to Israeli military occupation by making a tax-deductible contribution to the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation by clicking here.

And don't forget to send that letter to your Members of Congress letting them know that you oppose the President's request for $3 billion in military aid to Israel.  Send you letter today by clicking here.
