Religious freedom in Jerusalem
Jerusalem has been Judaism’s capital and holiest site for 3,000 years, and only Israel has ensured freedom of worship for all religions in recent decades. From 1948 to 1967, Jordan occupied Jerusalem, destroyed Jewish homes, and barred Jews from holy sites.

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.
