Join AJC in advocating for an Iran deal that completely removes the threat of Iran attaining the capability to produce nuclear weapons. Allowing Iran to remain a nuclear threshold state could trigger a nuclear arms race in the already volatile Middle East. Ask your Senators to insist that any deal contains strong, verifiable measures to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.
AJC briefed Congressional leaders about anti-Semitism in late 2014, and now Representatives Kay Granger (R-TX), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Peter Roskam (R-IL), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Steve Israel (D-NY), and Nita Lowey (D-NY) have launched a bipartisan taskforce to coordinate Congressional efforts, including legislation and bilateral engagement, to combat global anti-Semitism. Urge your Representative to join this taskforce.
Help call attention to one of the biggest roadblocks to Israel’s quest for peace: anti-Israel and anti-Semitic violence and hate incited by the Palestinian Authority (PA). Ask your representatives to support a congressional resolution that urges PA President Abbas and PA officials to discontinue all official incitement. The resolution also directs the State Department to regularly monitor and publish information on state-sponsored incitement by the PA against Jews and Israel.
Senators Shaheen (D-NH) and Rubio (R-FL) have introduced a bill that will sanction intuitions complicit in the Iranian-backed group’s illicit activities. It also calls on the President to determine whether Hezbollah meets the criteria to be designated as a foreign narcotics trafficker and as a transnational criminal organization. Ask your Senators to support this bill aimed at disrupting terrorist financing and keeping the pressure on Hezbollah.
AJC's mission is to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world.
