Action Alert: Help Israel Save Lives By Calling Your Senators!

URGENT: Israel needs your help to continue to save innocent lives.

Please call your Senators now to prevent divisive politics from interfering with funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system

 Israel is under attack. Every five to ten minutes another missile is launched into Israel from Hamas-controlled Gaza. The Iron Dome system saves lives. It has a 90% success rate against rockets fired by Hamas attacking Israel. Right now, 6 million Israeli lives are at stake. The Pentagon requested $225 million in additional funding for the Iron Dome system, but there is legislation that ties the new Iron Dome funding onto a controversial multi-billion dollar supplemental bill addressing immigration!

Funding for the Iron Dome is too crucial of an issue to be tied to any others. The US and Israel cannot afford to allow funding to become bogged down in partisan politics.

Israel needs your help. Please call the US Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to speak to your Senators to support Senator Mitch McConnell’s stand-alone spending bill to increase funds for the Iron Dome. This bill can pass within minutes, with your support. Every phone call makes a difference. Please flood your Senators with calls now.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is X, calling from X city, asking that Senator X support Senator McConnell’s stand-alone legislation to increase funding for the Iron Dome. The Iron Dome has saved countless Israeli lives, and it is neither in the interest of the United States nor Israel to see increased funding included in a controversial, partisan bill. Funding for the Iron Dome is too crucial of an issue to be tied to any others.”
