Committee Approves Pro-Israel Measures On
July 19, the U.S. House Appropriations Committee included key provisions in the
State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations Bill for Fiscal
Year 2018 that support America’s
ally Israel. The bill provides $3.1 billion in security assistance to
Israel—fully meeting America’s
commitment under the current Memorandum of Understanding between the two
countries. It also extends America’s
authority to stockpile weapons in Israel until the end of 2019 and provides
Israel with $7.5 million for assisting with refugee resettlement. The bill and
its accompanying report also include additional important provisions that:
address rampant anti-Israel bias at the United Nations; maintain key funding
restrictions on the Palestinian Authority (PA); restrict Palestinians’
diplomatic representation in the United States and cut off aid if the
Palestinians initiate or actively support an International Criminal Court
investigation against Israel; maintain stringent prior-year restrictions on
U.N. Refugee and Works Agency (UNRWA) funds, including an analysis of the
current definition of Palestinian refugees used by the agency; provide funding
for important people-to-people reconciliation programs that promote peace
between Israelis and Palestinians; and continue provisions that mandate
reporting on sanctions applied against Iran for its ballistic missile
