Foreign Policy relating to Israel

WHEREAS, United States foreign policy in the Middle East is and has historically favored Israeli interests, and

WHEREAS, President Bush and Secretary of State Rice's obvious support of Israel in delaying a cease-fire in the recent Lebanese conflict resulted in many more innocent deaths and destruction to infrastructure, and

WHEREAS, Israeli air power used in this conflict and the precision and cluster bombs dropped against Lebanese targets and population were supplied by the USA and paid for out of our taxes, and

WHEREAS, Our national legislators would not speak out about the disproportionate response to the Hesbola capture of two Israeli soldiers but instead almost unanimously passed a resolution supporting the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and

WHEREAS, The reluctance to ever criticize Israel policy is ample evidence of the great political power exercised by APAC, JDL, and other Israeli lobbying organizations advising the congress, and

WHEREAS, The fear to discuss or speak out about Israeli actions in the Middle East makes the congress ineffective in limiting the administrations desire to control the area, and seriously harms our foreign policy in the region,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Washington State Democratic Party challenge our national leaders in the party speak out and create opportunities for discussion of Israeli influence to our foreign policies, and

THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the WSDCC challenge our national leaders to work towards fashioning a more balanced diplomatic position between Israeli and Arab interests in the Middle East, And

THEREFORE, BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that the WSDCC believes a more balanced stance will slowly regain the trust and regard we once had in the region.
