Benefits of the U.S.-Israel Relationship

 

    • America’s close alliance with Israel, built over decades on the bedrock of shared values, provides significant benefits to both countries.

    • Our partnership with Israel keeps both countries safe. Israel is our closest ally in the Middle East, and our partnership helps counter radical forces in the region.  Working together, through intelligence-sharing, we are able to defeat common threats like terrorism and cyber attacks.

    • The U.S.-Israel alliance also supports technology research, development and innovation.  Our economic partnership with Israel has led to not only cutting-edge military advances, but also energy security technology, and environmental advances like desalination technology that holds promise for addressing water supply issues caused by global warming.  U.S. companies are benefiting from research and development in Israel, and Israel is an important export market for U.S. products. Israelis now invest close to $24 billion in the United States, as well.  Civic aviation, transportation and public health are other areas where the U.S.-Israel alliance is bringing forward benefits. 

    • The U.S. and Israel share democratic values including respect for the rule of law and the rights of individuals.  Our partnership is important for spreading democracy in the Middle East and around the world.

    What’s At Stake in 2020

     

    • The 2020 elections will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Each of the 435 United States House of Representatives seats and 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be up for election.

    • We know Congress is rapidly changing – more than 20 percent of current House members are new to Congress, and more than two-thirds of House and Senate members were elected after 2008. 

    • Challenges to the U.S. – Israel relationship have grown, and will continue to grow, in the years to come. We must be poised to use every tool at our disposal to educate and engage members of Congress politically.

       

    • The 2020 U.S. elections have the potential to drastically change the political landscape and could swing the balance of support for a number of important issues.  So much is at stake.

    • We need pro-Israel voices like yours to help protect our strong U.S.-Israel relationship. That’s why pro-Israel America makes it easy for members to support the election of pro-Israel candidates on both sides of the aisle.
