No Tax Dollars to Israel
No Tax Dollars To Israel is a project dedicated to ending US tax support to Israel.

Stop Billions to Israel
Stop Billions to Israel, according to its website,
advocates an end to the 10-year commitment of 30 billion dollars in US taxpayer-funded military aid pledged to Israel in 2007 by the Bush administration. To further our mission, we work to inform the public and our elected officials how the Israeli military misuses American-made weapons technology and violates human rights.

Investment committees for European banks are considering recommending their institutions bar loans to Israeli companies that have economic links with the Palestinian occupied territories. Check that wording, “economic links” — this ensnares many more businesses than those directly operating within the territories.Last week, Haaretz reporter Yossi Verter referenced this as “ the mother of all fears” a “nightmare scenario” and warned of an “economic tsunami”.
