Action Alert- Call the White House and Tell Them Now is NOT the Time to Hold Up Critical Arms to Israel While It is Fighting a War for Its Very Survival

Israel is in the midst of an existential war. The Iranian proxy, Hamas, attacked Israel on October 7th in the most brutal ways imaginable – decapitation, incineration of children in front of their parents whom they tied to chairs, and using sexual violence upon women as a weapon of war – murdering 1200 innocent Israeli civilians, plundering and burning homes, and kidnapping over 253 Israelis, Americans and other nationals.

As Hamas invaded Israel by land, air, and sea, they also launched thousands of rockets into Israeli cities. Meanwhile, since October 7th, the Iranian proxy Hezbollah has been regularly launching missiles into Israel from Lebanon – stepping up its attacks in the last 24 hours. At least 60,000 Israelis from Israel’s north have had to find ‘temporary shelter’ – now lasting over the last 7 months. In addition, another Iranian proxy – the Yemeni Shiite terrorist group, the Houthis – have launched over 50 attacks on international shipping lanes in the Red Sea.

On April 13th, the Islamic Republic of Iran launched approximately 300 drones, ballistic missiles, and cruise missiles against Israel, terrorizing the population. And the Islamic Republic has perpetrated over 170 attacks – with impunity – on active-duty U.S. service members stationed in Jordan, Syria, and Iraq.

And just this week, the International Atomic Energy Administration (IAEA) reported that the Islamic Republic of Iran is just days away from total nuclear breakout – as they continue to ban mandated IAEA inspectors from conducting their mutually agreed upon mission.

If ever there was a just war, Israel’s existential war against Hamas is the most unequivocal example.

If Israel does not complete its mission against Hamas, there will, inevitably, be endless October 7th’s – because Hamas has vowed as much. Yet, as stated in the Wall Street Journal, President Biden has vowed to hold up the sale o 6,500 joint direct attack munitions, worth as much as $260 million to the US defense manufacturers.

This week, on Yom HaShoah, President Biden pledged to the Jewish community that:

Never again means never forget.

The President also said that:

Now, here we are, not 75 years later but just seven and a half months later, and people are already forgetting. They’re already forgetting that Hamas unleashed this terror, that it was Hamas that brutalized Israelis, that it was Hamas who took and continues to hold hostages. I have not forgotten, nor have you, and we will not forget.

President Biden also promised on April 23rd to:

make sure that Israel has what it needs to defend itself against Iran and terrorists it supports.

President Biden signed the Congressional Appropriations Package to Israel. The Legislative Branch is equal to the Judiciary and the Executive Branch in the Constitution. It is outrageous that he dares renege on his promises and signed commitments to Israel.

Please call the White House immediately at 202-456-1111 or send an email to and tell President Biden that Now is Precisely the Wrong Time to Fail to Honor his Repeated Commitments to Israel and Renege on his Pledge that he “has Israel’s back.”

If we fail to support Israel and the Israeli people today, we may find that it is the U.S. and Americans who are the next targets of this threat to civilization.
