Text on front of card:

Why aren't news media telling us about the largest aid legislation in US history? $38 billion to Israel over the next ten years, in Congress right now.

American taxpayers have the right to know.

What you should know:

The current bill, "United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018" H.R.5141, has been approved by the Senate and is in committee in the House. This is the largest military aid package in history. The U.S. has already given more money to Israelis than to any other people around the world – on average, about 7,000 times more. This $38 billion would amount to $23,000 per every Jewish Israeli family of four.

The aid would violate several U.S. laws:

  • It would violate two amendments to the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act, known as the the Symington and Glenn Amendments, that ban support for countries engaged in clandestine nuclear programs.
  • It would violate the Leahy Law, which prohibits aid to countries guilty of human rights violations.
  • In the past Israel has used U.S. aid in ways that violated the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), which prohibits re-export of U.S.-origin defense and dual-use technology, which Israel has repeatedly done. Israel has also been charged with using U.S. weaponry illegally.

38 billion card back

Text on back of card:

Demand Congress vote AGAINST sending $38 billion to Israel!

Do the math.

  • A $1 bill is approximately 0.004 inches thick.
  • A stack of 250 bills is an inch high.
  • A stack as high as Mt. Everest would take 87,087,000 dollars.
  • With 3.8 billion dollar bills, you could reach the International Space Station in orbit.
  • This military aid package, would give Israel that much every year for the next 10 years!

Can you think of a better way to use that money?

Contact Congress now and let them know!
