Congress: Reject Pro-Settlement Provisions on Ex-Im Bank

Congress should reject attempts to attach provisions supporting Israeli settlements in the West Bank to the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank, and should reject re-authorization of the Ex-Im Bank if pro-settlement provisions are attached.

Why is this important?

It's bad enough that the Export-Import Bank is corporate welfare, crony capitalism supported by Members of Congress in exchange for campaign contributions from the corporations that benefit from this taxpayer-funded subsidy.

But now some Members of Congress are trying to attach a provision to the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank that would promote Israeli settlements in the West Bank [1], which former US peace envoy [2] Martin Indyk has acknowledged are the key obstacle to a diplomatic resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict. The Obama Administration is opposed to Congress passing such pro-settlement provisions.

Urge Members of Congress to oppose attaching pro-settlement provisions to re-authorization of the Ex-Im Bank, and to oppose re-authorization of the Ex-Im Bank if pro-settlement provisions are attached, by signing our petition.

  • Well, that's pretty clear. In stead, we should be calling Israel out, and imposing on them the kind trade barriers we have imposed on the people of Palestine, until they return occupies territories to their rightful owners, and end their apartheid occupation.
