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 and the possibility of our involvement in a regional conflict in the Middle East.

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 is not the job of our federal government to accomplish this goal.

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 guarantees is future deaths in this country through Arab-sponsored terrorism."

The America First Party calls for an end to all foreign aid to all participants in the Arab-Israeli conflict and all nations everywhere. Ending foreign aid will tend to increase respect for constitutional principles, increase our credibility as a mediator of disputes in the Middle East, and slow the rate of increase of our skyrocketing debt.

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.
