Condition US Military Aid to Israel on Respect for Human Rights

On October 5th, 2012 AFSC joined 14 other church groups in calling on congress to condition the provision of US military aid to Israel on Israel’s compliance with applicable US laws.  We joined together with these other groups because the content of the letter is consistent with AFSC’s belief that continued unconditional U.S. military assistance to Israel helps sustain the conflict, undermines the long-term security interests of both Israelis and Palestinians, and forestalls the realization of a just and lasting peace.  US policy must change.
