House bill 938- ‘The United states-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2013’ - has many parts and none of them are in our best interests. We should not allow Israel to participate in our Visa Waiver program as long as it discriminates against U.S. citizens traveling to Israel (violating the standard of reciprocity all other participating nations adhere to). We should not legislatively protect Israel’s foreign aid from sequestration cuts. We should not tie our actions in Iran to anything that Israel might do - particularly of a preemptive nature! This bill doesn’t provide any benefits to the United States. It is worth asking these representatives why they support it.

Until Israel complies with international laws the USA's association with this apartheid state will only taint our reputation as an advocate of freedom, democracy and rule of law.

Use this list of co-sponsors as a guide to those representatives who have been bought out by the powerful pro-Israel interests.

This almost unanimous support of this Bill,- except the brave 'Nay' from Senator Thomas Massie from Kentucky- is frightening -coming at a time of supposed 'peace process' -which is nothing but a charade -when Israel's breaches of international law, human rights and violence and aggression toward the occupied Palestinians in the West Bank, and the Bedouin in the Negev, have reached fever pitch.

This further closeness makes the US complicit in allowing Israel's impunity to its war crimes, and should disqualify it as a broker in any peace process or negotiations. It also makes it impossible for any sanctions or action to be taken at the Security Council of the UN to stop Israel's criminal occupation of the West Bank and the inhuman siege of Gaza.

"When we fail to keep faith with our veterans, the bond between our nation and our nation's heroes becomes frayed. When a veteran is denied care, we are all dishonored."Veterans are DIEING because of lack of medical care at VA hospitals,sad but true.BLUEWATER VETERANS HAVE BEEN DIEING FOR YEARS BECAUSE THEY ARENT RECOGNIZED AS BEING EXPOSED TO HERBICIDES WHILE OPERATING IN POLLUTED ALONG THE COAST OF VIETNAM.HOW MANY HAVE DIED?GOD ONLY KNOWS.THIS IS THE NEXT SCANDAL.
