Congress is poised to pass two bills fighting Iran’s ballistic missile program and Hezbollah’s finances. We must ensure they are passed.
The House of Representatives is slated on Wednesday to consider and vote on two important pieces of legislation that are crucial to Israel’s security.
The bills address Iran’s dangerous aggression in the Middle East and that of its terrorist proxy, Hezbollah.
The first bill, the Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act (H.R. 1698), expands sanctions against Iran’s illicit ballistic missile program and its aggressive behavior in the region. The bill was introduced by Congressmen Ed Royce (R-CA), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Steny Hoyer (D-MD).
The second bill, the Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act of 2017 (H.R. 3329), is an expansion of existing legislation and targets foreign governments that knowingly provide financial support to Hezbollah as well as to foreign individuals or companies that aid its fundraising or recruitment activities.
The legislation, submitted by Congressmen Ed Royce and Eliot Engel, seeks to hit Hezbollah in its pocket and cut off the flow of resources to the Iranian-backed terror group.
Iran’s ballistic missile program is a direct threat to Israel, and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah has one purpose only – to destroy the Jewish state.
The passage of these bills would deal a meaningful blow to terrorism while contributing to Israel’s security as well as to that of the Middle East and the entire world.
It is crucial that these bills receive resounding bipartisan support. Urge your representative to support both bills.
