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.
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 , which former US peace envoy  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.
