House Republicans Are Fulfilling Our Commitment to Israel And Holding The UN Accountable

  • Rep Granger
House Republicans remain committed to supporting our great ally Israel by ensuring that they have the resources necessary to complete their imperative military mission against the barbaric terrorist organization Hamas and to safeguard not only Israel’s right to exist but also the rights of Jewish people everywhere.
The Further Consolidated Appropriations Act does just that by fully funding U.S.-Israeli cooperative missile defense programs, which include the Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and Arrow. This bill also holds the United Nations accountable for its blatant bias against our most precious ally, Israel, by prohibiting any taxpayer dollars from going to the United Nations Commission of Inquiry against Israel and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which assisted Hamas in their horrific terrorist attacks in Israel on October 7, which left more than 1,200 people in Israel dead.
The Defense Appropriations Act fully funds U.S.-Israeli cooperative missile defense programs, which include the Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and Arrow. 
  • $300 million for Research, Test, and Evaluation.
  • $200 million for Procurement.
The State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act fully funds the U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding at $3.3 billion and holds the UN accountable. 
  • Prohibits funds for UNRWA.
  • Prohibits funds for the United Nations Commission of Inquiry against Israel.
  • Forces the UN and other international organizations funded in the bill to assess and report on their efforts to combat anti-Israel bias and antisemitism and to vet personnel for connections to terrorist groups.
  • Prohibits the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps from being removed from the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list.
  • Prohibits funds to implement an agreement with the Government of Iran relating to the nuclear program of Iran, or a renewal of the JCPOA, in contravention of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015.
  • Withholds funds to the UN Human Rights Council to: 
    • Hold the Council accountable for its blatant anti-Israel actions; and
    • Reform the Council’s election process to prevent the world’s worst human rights abusers, like Iran, from becoming members.
  • Implements new conditions on any assistance to Gaza, including mechanisms for coordination with Israel, prevention of diversion to Hamas or other terrorist entities, and a requirement for third-party monitoring.
  • Prohibits funds to move the U.S. embassy from Jerusalem.
  • Strengthens vetting related to the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement, including new requirements on political neutrality, and imposing new transparency requirements on the Office of Palestinian Affairs.
