In the past week, many of the Democratic presidential candidates addressed questions about the future of U.S. military assistance to Israel. The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) strongly supports the mutually beneficial military and security relationship between the U.S. and Israel, as well as the continuation of full military assistance, per the ten-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Last week, we issued a statement on the future of U.S. aid to Israel and rejected the cutting or conditioning aid. Our statement can be found here.
