Our great nation, the United States of America, stands at a critical juncture in its history, and we, the people, have the power to determine the direction that we take by exercising our freedom of speech and right to vote. During this historic presidential election, one of the key issues facing this great country is our relationship with Israel, our closest ally in the Middle East.
The vast majority of the American people support Israel, and it is our responsibility to make sure that the next President of the United States reflects the will of people and stands in friendship with the nation and people of Israel.
American Christian Leaders for Israel (ACLI) is submitting a letter to the presidential candidates to highlight the chief principles we deem necessary to maintain the valuable friendship between our two nations. We ask you to sign this letter demonstrating to the candidates that together we represent many millions of Christians in the United States who recognize the mutual benefit to both nations of a close strategic partnership with Israel.
We ask the presidential candidates to:
- Implement the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 and relocate the US Embassy in Israel to its capital city of Jerusalem.
- Renew and strengthen the US’s Memorandum of Understanding to fund Israel’s growing security needs.
- Combat any efforts at the local, state, or federal level to boycott, divest from, or sanction Israel.
- Monitor Iran’s ongoing violations of sanctions and to toughen current sanctions as well as impose new ones as necessary.
- Oppose any imposed solutions to the Palestinian conflict on Israel by outside parties, including the United Nations Security Council.
Israel, an island of hope and freedom, lives in an increasingly stormy sea of despair and terror. Now more than ever, we must speak in a unified voice to our future leaders to ensure a strong stance with our Israeli friends.
Help us obtain the signatures of thousands of Christian ministry, church, and business leaders to our letter to the presidential candidates.
