I am very concerned about the efforts being made by AIPAC in support of the following measures which I oppose.
H.R. 938, The United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2013, would make Israel a “major strategic ally,” a privileged relationship that no other nation enjoys. It would also protect aid to Israel from any future across-the-board budget cuts.
H.R. 850, The Nuclear Iran Prevention Act of 2013, would extend existing sanctions targeting Iran’s energy and financial transactions to include an even broader range of its commerce with the rest of the world.
AIPAC is pushing to exempt US aid to Israel from sequestration, the mandatory reduction of all federal expenditures. Social Security payments are undergoing cuts. FBI expenditures are being reduced. Education Department services are decreasing. It is absurd to suggest that our massive amount of aid to Israel would be exempted.
I urge you to oppose these measures.
