Israel's Peace and Security

What we face: Shifting alliances, new and emerging governments in the Middle East and the ever-present threat of terrorist organizations on Israel’s borders create further instability in the region and increase assaults on Israel’s right to exist. Furthermore, the growth of the BDS—boycott, divestment and sanctions—movement among some foreign governments and on college campuses across the U.S. is another campaign to delegitimize the Jewish State.

What we do: AJC’s diplomacy at the highest levels of government around the world promotes greater understanding and builds coalitions to support the security and standing of Israel. In addition, AJC’s Project Interchange brings leaders from key fields (such as government, media and academia) to Israel to experience Israel’s thriving and complex society up-close. Upon their return, these decision-makers and opinion leaders share their new insights on Israel’s challenges and accomplishments.

AJC Dallas meets with diplomats, local, state and national politicians, and ethnic community leaders to educate them about the need to maintain a strong alliance between the United States and Israel. Moreover, building relationships now affords AJC Dallas the opportunity to call on our “friends in high places” should the need arise.
