senate Bill S. 2497

Should the U.S. Reaffirm its Commitment to Israel’s Security by Providing Military Aid?

Argument in favor

America’s interest in Israel’s security is significant. Given the Middle East’s security situation, it’s more important than ever for the U.S. to both provide financial support to Israeli military goals, and for relevant U.S. agencies to cooperate with relevant Israeli agencies in areas of mutual interest.

Yes! Out of all the countries that are suppose to be our allies, Isreal deserves our support the most. If it wasn't for us the middle east most likely would have destroyed Isreal by now. If we can go to war for a country like Kuwait, then we can most certainly give aid to Isreal.

There is no question that Israel is our friend and ally. It is in our interest and it's morally right. We send aid to countries that are much less loyal if at all. I don't understand the hate that I see in the other comments. Israel Has never carried out an act of terrorism against us or anyone else.. I see comments about them being Apartheid and land thieves. Nothing can be further from the truth. That land along with much of the surrounding area belongs to them. Other people are on their land.

Argument opposed

U.S. aid to Israel is counterproductive to the peace process. Israel’s economic and military dependence on the U.S. is draining its economy, which would benefit more from domestic arms manufacturing than from U.S. funds and equipment going directly to the Israeli military.

No. Have those thieves return the Palestinians’ land. The land they stole from a disarmed populace.

Israel is an illegal settler occupation who keeps the citizens of Palestine in an open air prison. They shoot innocent men, women, and children. They withhold medical treatment from the people of Palestine by blocking aid and access to chemotherapy by denying access into Israel where there doctors are. There citizens have no qualms with genocide as long as they get to keep the land. We must stop funding this genocide against the Palestinian people.

No. Isreal has enough resources to protect themselves. Maybe they can get a patreon account. Their security is not our security.

    Should we put billions on our children’s credit to finance an apartheid state on the other side of the planet?? NO!

    When the Israelis stop treating the Palestinians like subhumans, then maybe we should give them aid. Until then, they shouldn't get a penny. How can they treat people so badly when they have been the victims of unspeakable behavior for hundreds of years?

    Isreal is in violation of international law and has been for decades. The seige on Gaza must be lifted, Palestine must be restored, and there must be an honest push towards a two states solution. Israel is an apartheid state committing genocide on the Palestinian people and we CANNOT support that.

    No! End all military aid to Wars that have nothing to do with us. Israel hasn’t actually done anything for us. Pull completely out of the Middle East.

    Israel seems to be doing just fine compared to the people of Palestine. Let’s get our national debt under control first.

    Israel has become a de facto authoritarian regime and treat the Palestinians alarmingly similarly to how the Germans treated European Jews in the early 20th Century.

    Not at the expense of the Palestinians! Trump just voted to defund the UN agency that helps Palestinian refugees; this is “governance” by bigotry.

    Absolutely! Israel has done everything they can to protect themselves from multiple hostile people’s and we deserve to keep this ally as close as possible. They are the only real Republic in the Middle East that is a shining light for those who wish to emulate its government. Turkey no longer deserves our support and Israel should obtain all of it. They have never stepped away from our help nor have they made us question our support for it. Step up military relations with Israel as they will guarantee us better knowledge and cooperation on subject of cyber-security and conventional security than any of our allies since their system is always in use defending itself from multiple enemies.

    Israel is financially strong enough to provide for its own security. Israel needs to put an end to its atrocities with Palestinians. Israel should submit to a two state solution.
