AFT Resolution

ISRAEL

WHEREAS, Israel is our only remaining sister democracy in the Middle East; and

WHEREAS, Israel has for years been a cornerstone of America's defense against the spread of totalitarian movements and military dictatorship into the Mediterranean and the Middle East:

RESOLVED, that this AFT convention urge the government of the United States to cease its recent policy of forcing on the State of Israel concessions without concomitant guarantees from the adjacent states for the peace of the area; and

RESOLVED, that the government of the United States be urged to reaffirm its commitment to the existence of a strong and independent Israel as the best guarantee for freedom and peace in the Middle East.

(1976)

Please note that a newer resolution, or portion of a resolution, may have superseded an earlier resolution on the same subject. As a result, with the exception of resolutions adopted at our most recent AFT convention, resolutions do not necessarily reflect current AFT policies.
