AIPAC opposes the @ChrisVanHollen amendment that politicizes U.S. support for Israel's security. This amendment contradicts the Obama-@JoeBiden MOU and goes far beyond current law in ways that damage American interests, risk Israel's security, and make peace less likely.
Despite some policy disagreements with Israel, President Obama increased America's security commitment to Israel, and his MOU had no political restrictions.

As @JoeBiden said, it would be a "gigantic mistake" and “absolutely outrageous” to condition or leverage security aid.
.@ChrisVanHollen wants to ensure no U.S. funds are used for annexation. But that's already law. Aid can only be used for “internal security, for legitimate self-defense.”

This amendment goes far beyond current law in ways that jeopardize Israel's security.

AIPAC opposes the letter being circulated by @RepAOC—cosigned by @RepJayapal, @RepRashida & @BettyMcCollum04—which explicitly threatens the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that would damage American interests, risk the security of Israel & make a two-state solution less likely.
The letter rejects President Obama’s security assistance commitment to Israel (MOU). Dems and Reps in Congress agree the MOU is in America’s interest and is a key pillar of our security strategy in the region. Congress must continue to fully implement the Obama-@JoeBiden MOU.
The U.S.-Israel relationship is a mutually beneficial partnership that reinforces our moral values and strategic interests. The overwhelming majority of Democrats and Republicans, in Congress and across the country, agree that America is best served when we stand with Israel.

AIPAC applauds the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for adopting the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2020 (S. 3176). (1/9)
This important bipartisan legislation seeks to ensure that Israel has the means to defend itself, by itself, against continuing regional security threats.

This bill authorizes agreed-upon increases in Israel’s security assistance. (2/9)
It encourages expanding U.S. weapons stockpiles in Israel and advancing U.S.-Israel cooperation in directed energy technologies and space. (3/9)

@SenatorMenendez "There may be one or two other things happening both here and in Israel making headlines today... but I think this is the most important event happening right now for the future of the U.S.-Israel relationship.
@SenatorMenendez ...Before I continue, I want to make something clear.

I stand before you today NOT ONLY as the Ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee…

NOT ONLY as a lifelong friend to Israel and the Jewish people…
