  •  declaring Israel a "major strategic ally? (4+ / 0-)

    AIPAC asking congress for legislation declaring the Jewish state a "major strategic ally."

    That is a designation not enjoyed by any other nation, JTA pointed out, noting it may be a step toward the goal of some conservatives of divorcing assistance to Israel from all other foreign aid spending.

    AIPAC's annual policy conference begins Sunday and culminates Tuesday with personal visits by constituents to hundreds of members of the House and Senate.

    They will also be urging Congress to enact more stringent sanctions on Iran and press the administration for tougher measures to thwart Tehran's nuclear ambitions. Part of that effort will be lobbying for support for a non-binding resolution urging the president to back Israel "it it is compelled to act against the Iranian nuclear threat," JTA reported.
