1. Urge Congress to Support Emergency Aid Package for Israel

President Clinton asked Congress to approve an additional $450 million in aid to help defray the cost of Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon and to counter the long-term strategic missile threats from the likes of Iran and Iraq. During this time of crisis in Israel, it is important for Congress to send a strong signal to the international community that the United States stands by Israel.

To urge your members to support the aid package before Congress adjourns for the year, please visit http://www.aipac.org/Action1.cfm

2. AIPAC Rejects State Department Criticism of Israel's Response to Terrorist Attack

AIPAC strongly rejected the State Department's criticism of Israel's response to last Monday's school bus bombing in Gaza. In a statement, AIPAC President Tim Wuliger said AIPAC is "extremely disturbed and disappointed by the State Department's criticism of Israel's military response to the Palestinian bombing of Israeli children and their teachers aboard a school bus. At this time of crisis, the United States should stand by Israel, not criticize Israel for defending its people."

3. Arafat's Fatah Faction Calls for Increase in Violence During Ramadan

Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat's Fatah faction has called on Palestinians to step up their violent activities during the Moslem holy month of Ramadan, which starts today. Amid the continuing Palestinian violence, Israeli security officials have been expressing concerns over a possible escalation in attacks against Israelis during the holiday, particularly in the area of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

4. Hezbollah Renews Attacks Against Israel Despite U.N. Certification of Withdrawal

Despite U.N. certification that Israel withdrew fully from Lebanese territory in May, Hezbollah launched a bomb attack Sunday in an area that the terrorist group and the Lebanese government contend is still occupied by Israel. Lebanon, meanwhile, has failed to take control of the southern part of the country as required by U.N. Resolution 425.

5. Arafat, Hamas Cooperating in Attacks Against Israel

Yasir Arafat and Hamas have put past differences aside to wage a coordinated campaign of violence against Israel. This dangerous union could spell trouble for Israel and future prospects for peace.
