CMEP is honored to co-sponsor this conversation with J Street, the Arab American Institute, and Combatants for Peace.
Each year, the United States provides $3.8 billion dollars in military assistance to Israel. Despite a variety of Congressional mechanisms in place to ensure that American taxpayer dollars are not used to abuse human rights abroad, there is little transparency or supervision over the ways in which U.S. assistance to Israel is used. Without a clear understanding of how U.S. military assistance to Israel is used, Congress, and by extension the American people, remain complicit in the ongoing Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory. What can be done to address this reality? How can we effectively advocate with Congress to ensure U.S. taxpayer funds are not and cannot be used to deepen the occupation and abuse Palestinian human rights? Join us for a conversation between Jim Zogby, Founder and President of the Arab American Institute and Jeremy Ben-Ami, Founder and President of J Street where they will discuss how the US must act to help peacefully end the occupation -- instead of exacerbating it.
