End U.S. Favoritism in the Arab-Israeli Conflict
Boulder, CO - The America First Party deplores the involvement of our
government in the military disputes of other nations when these are not
likely to impact our national security. Due to our heavy favoritism of
Israel versus its neighboring Arab states in military and economic aid, and
in weapons purchase allowances, we have in fact taken sides in the
Arab-Israeli conflict. This increases the risk of terrorism on U.S. soil

The America First Party platform states that "The Constitution does not
empower the Federal Government to ... protect other nations." Regardless of
how much we desire Israeli citizens to be secure from terrorist strikes, it

National Secretary John Hey stated, "There is no constitutional authority
for foreign aid; furthermore, it violates the fiduciary duty of our
government, given our high debt levels."
Finance Chairman Mike Eller stated, "The only thing our lopsided policy

The America First Party calls for an end to all foreign aid to all
participants in the Arab-Israeli conflict and all nations everywhere.

The America First Party was founded in April 2002 and is focused on electing principled citizen statesmen who will preserve and protect our people and our sovereignty, promote economic growth and independence, encourage the traditional values of faith, family, and responsibility, ensure equality before the law in protecting those rights granted by the Creator, and clean up our corrupted political system. In 2004, the AFP elected two-thirds of its candidates to public office.
