American Jews and Israel
The overwhelming majority of American Jews consider themselves pro-Israel, despite what some fringe groups claim.

American Jews & Criticism of Israel
While the vast majority of Jews are pro-Israel, they are not monolithic. Most are also critical of some Israeli policies.

Dual loyalty
America is filled with immigrants and communities who have ties to other countries. Just like for other Americans, it is entirely natural for American Jews to feel connected to their homeland while also being loyal citizens of the United States.

Jews, Israel, and America
Jews have many differing beliefs and viewpoints regarding Israel. Assuming that Jews are more loyal to Israel and/or Zionism than to America is deeply misguided.

Jews aren’t monolithic
Jews are an extremely diverse people in terms of color, ethnicity, religious affiliation, political viewpoint, and more. While there is a collective sense of Jewish identity, this does not include holding identical viewpoints on Israeli policy, American policy, religion, or a host of other issues.

Jews aren’t monolithic politically
Like every other community, Jews vary widely in their political views. There is no candidate or party that “the Jews” collectively support.

Jews aren’t monolithic on Israel
American Jews do not have a single uniform opinion on Israel. It’s also important to note that like other Americans, most Jews prioritize domestic issues like the economy and education over US policy towards Israel.

Jews aren’t monolithic religiously
Jews run the gamut from ultra-orthodox (very religious) to atheist. The many sub-groups that make up the Jewish people have disagreements with each other on most political issues, including Israel.

“The Jewish Lobby”
America supports Israel primarily because of shared interests and values. While many American Jews do lobby for a strong US-Israel relationship, claiming that the "the Jewish lobby" is the sole reason for this alliance is false and echoes antisemitic conspiracy theories.

History of "dual loyalty" accusations against Jews
For centuries, Jews have faced hatred, discrimination, and violence after being accused of "dual loyalty" or not being loyal enough to the countries in which they live.

Lies about US-Israel exchanges
Blaming Israel for police brutality in America is an antisemitic lie. US-Israel police exchange programs help senior officials prevent terrorist attacks and have nothing to do with street arrests.

Speaking over Jews
"Because it cannot accept the simple historical truth that most Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews are and continue to identify as Zionist, JVP instead propagates a portrayal of Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews as pawns without any agency. We reject this revisionism, and call it out for the orientalism and racism that it is."

HR 2590
HR 2590 purports to hold Israel accountable by placing additional conditions and reporting requirements on U.S. military aid. However, it is really a stepping stone to cutting off U.S. aid to Israel, fueled by misleading accusations and the anti-bias of many of the bill’s supporters.

What is the Taylor Force Act?
The Taylor Force Act is a law named after an American citizen who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in 2016. It prohibits U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA), unless the PA takes steps to end violence against U.S. and Israeli citizens, and stop financially rewarding acts of terrorism.
